LMAO! That's a good one.

One of the kids I give lessons to has a hard time keeping her thighs against the saddle. One day, she really had to pee, and was embarrassed to ask if she could go in the house to use the bathroom. I noticed how she was standing, obviously let her know it was OK to go in the house.

Next time she rode, I told her to ride like she had to pee. So every time I say her thighs start drifting away from the saddle I'd start yelling " I HAVE TO PEE!!"

And yes, I have done the potty dance while she's practicing at a show ;)

I had an instructor tell me 'heels down tits up' at lease once a day. Now Im not sure if he was trying to improve my riding or just wanted me to stick my tits out.. guess I will never know.

Also he has a couple more that I don't know if they are totally appropriate, but way funny!

"You paid to use all the corners in this ring, you better ride down into them."

In regards to keeping your hands/thumbs up - "Pretend like you are holding a bird in each hand...if you don't close your fingers, they will fly away and if you ride with flat hands you are going to smash their heads together."

When I was little and went on my first trail ride, my instructor asked me what my favorite food was, I said lasagna, so she compared the grass to lasagna, so I wouldn't let him eat.

If anyone in our class has our elbows out, our trainer tells us we have chicken wings. And to stop flapping them. LOL
