    I don't have any of my own because I have had very few lessons unfortunately...

    But, one instructor that I have been to several times likes to threaten to tie your toes together underneath the horse if you can't keep them pointed straight ahead.. Maybe my toes are fine since she hasn't used this with me yet

    For sitting trot: "SHOULDERS LIKE A PRINCESS, HIPS LIKE A *****"

    For holding the reins correctly in dressage: "Imagine you are holding 2 little birds and you don't want to crush them or let them escape." This keeps your hands in correct position and with correct hold on reins.

    This isn't an analogy, but I have a tendency to extend my arms while riding, and to keep them bent, my instructor put a whip between my elbows and back, so my arms couldn't stretch out!

    I got the bit about flying xD

    I also got the "string pulling you up from the top of your helmet". I thought that was a good one.
