I havent taken a lesson in a good while but I remember my instructor when I was a kid yelling across the ring "get those heels down.....are your heels down?"
I have heard my daughters instructor say "Who is running this show, you or your horse?" It helps her to remember to pay attention since she is only 10.

My favorites are 'pain is weakness leaving the body' my old trainer used to make me say that when I would have to go around 20 times in 2pt or with no stirrups or both. He would make me say it over & over

Him - 'what is pain ?'
Me- 'weakness leaving the body'

Lol

I also like 'now we're cookin' with wesson oil' haha

Haha everyone has great phrases! Time to add mine!

"Trademark!" This is said only when I'm looking down. After nearly 10 years of riding, it's still used here and there!

"Squeeze your legs like you are squeezing out toothpaste/cream puff"

"Make love to that saddle!" To the adult riders only, haha. Used to help the beginners to sit the trot.

"Don't look down, there's no money on the ground!" I actually found a $0.25 on the ground, so she changed the phrase.

"Don't look down, or you'll fall down!"

Get up there and RIDE before I give you a reason to cry!! I haven't heard that one in a couple of decades but it sure worked.

"Put your shoulders back and boobs out!!!!"

"Smile with all four cheeks" hated that one.

"Sit up straight, **** it! Or I'll duct tape a bat to your back!!" also hated that one.

"If you're not one with your horse, you'll be one with the ground."

"Always remember, the ground is harder than it is to sit the trot..."

I never understood that one really... Maybe because it made no grammatical sense...

"Do not kill the little birds in your hands!" if I'm using too much rein

"Are you planning on making the transition today?" When I hesitate on transitions

"Fix your stirrup" My feet tend to slip around in the stirrup a lot! There are more but I can't think of them right now.
