The song is a mid-tempo ballad backed mostly by piano. It is written in the key of C Major and in 4/4 time. Its female narrator tells of being rejected in a relationship. She uses fairy tale imagery to describe this, especially in the metaphor of her ex-boyfriend being a prince on a white horse, and by saying "I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairy tale" after realizing that the relationship was not what she had expected. "In the song "White Horse", you put everything you have into love and you get your heart broken," Swift tells The Boot. "More people have been able to relate to those songs; the ones that I wrote when I was really going through something terrible."[3]
Swift also says, "To me, “White Horse” is about what, in my opinion, is the most heart-breaking part of a break-up – that moment when you realize that all the dreams you had, all those visions you had of being with this person, all that disappears. Everything after that moment is moving on.. But that initial moment of “Wow, it’s over” is what I wrote “White Horse” about."

According to Country Weekly magazine, Swift says she wrote the song within weeks of writing "Love Story".[4] Swift said the guy from the previous song "reminded [her] a lot of fairy tales and Prince Charming." After she wrote part of the first verse, she placed a call to her friend, co-writer Liz Rose, to help her write the song.[4] Swift and Rose had finished "White Horse" within 45 minutes.[4]
