some of the most used dressage phrases are:
-doitagaindoitagain (what instructors say after we do something badly)
-GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! (when we do something really well!)
and the msot dreaded.....
-one more time. (it usually means 'we are going to do this a hundred times over until you get it right, even if it takes the rest of the day')

I get "Elbows!" all the time. Well at least not "legs/hips" anymore!

LOL that was funny :)

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Oh my god, I heard my trainer's voice as I read each one. LOL! Except, instead of "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!", rather, it's "YES! There it is!" :)

Mmm, well, "leads" in trotting is really the diagonal, and it comes from YOU not the horse, as opposed to leads. You "rise and fall with the leg on the wall". So when the horse takes a step forward with his outside leg, you post. If you are on the wrong diagonal, it is fixed by sitting two "beats" - hence, sit two. But this is really for all english riding, it's not just a dressage thing. When I change mine I say "Thump THUMP!" in my head to count. You will be bounced out of the saddle to the correct diagonal if you let your seat be loose anyway when you sit to change it.
