*********
The Body like a horse,
 
with the Mind as a saddle
 
The Soul holds the reins
 
and rides this beast into battle
*********
 
Meaning:
The body is wild and impulsive, like an animal.  To be able to put a saddle on a horse and use it to your advantage, you need to tame and control it; this is the role of the mind which must constantly say "control your eating, control your desires".  Once the horse (the body) has been accustomed to living with the saddle (the mind) on it's back and not throw it off, then the Soul may comfortably ride the horse which now responds in a useful way.
