    "Good, now do it AGAIN!" *repeat*

    "Get MAD at 'im!"

    "You better get it right this time!"

    "Drive, drive, DRIVE!"

    "Get those **** heels down!"

    Those are phrases my instructor frequently shrieks at me whilst she's turning red and steam is spouting from her ears.

    "Lets see them tatties girls!!" I always tell mom and ash this when we ride, they don't take lessons so I make sure to coach them in a way they wont realize I am coaching...
    one I used riding and when I as group leader in weight training in highschool was"BUTT AND BOOBS" when my teammates hunched their shoulders while lifting or someone starts slouching in the saddle my version of chest out back straight, fits better with my personality lol

    My old trainer used to say, "Noooow your cookin' with fire!" when I'd actually do something right lol....

    And also I would say "well," but it sounded like "wool," when I was a teenager having attitude about something, and he'd always cut me off and just say "Wool is for sheep, get out there!" lol

    Oh man, tons come to mind!

    "His mane is black, it will always BE black, no matter how long you go without watching it!"

    "Quit perching!"

    "Down, forward, up back, down, forward, up, back..." for sitting the canter.

    "Feel the burn!"

    "Quit spilling ice cream all over your horse's neck!" I was always told to hold my reins like ice cream cones, and if my hands tipped, I would spill the ice cream. =]

    Most of my instructors demanded cookies if you fell off.

    I tend to fall off rather ungracefully a lot
    My trainer used to tell me to think of my butt as being 'stuck' to my horse like sticky tape, or glue...Lol!

    "As gentle as you can, but as firm as necessary"...when it comes to training

    "Heels down, toes up"

    "Elbows in, you look like you're flying!"

    "Straighten Up!" for when you're slouching

    "whatever you do, don't hang on with your lower leg when you're bareback!" My trainer told me that when I was starting to learn bareback...of course now it's a "duh" statement, but I can Pass it on to students now!

    "Release" when jumping

    Oh man.

    --"Shelby, if you're trying to fly, remember, chickens CAN'T FLY!" ((When my elbows start flopping, LOL))

    -- Heels down!

    -- Does it burn? Oh good.

    -- Great! Now do it AGAIN. *repeat as necessary* haha.

    -- You need a smaller helmet. (I'm a pinhead. I can never find one small enough. Hahaha.)

    -- Instructor - "Hand gallop is FUN. Riding without stirrups is FUN. Posting without stirrups is FUN."
    Me - NO IT'S NOT?
    Her - "Oh, well I meant for me. To watch. You." *laughs evilly*
    Me - >.< Oh.

    Hahaha. And my personal fave, one my dad always says when I'm pissed and ranting: Oh?

    Me: >.< Yes.

    Or when my butt tends to float up... and I'm talking... "Shelby. Shelby. Shelby. SHELBY! Shut up and sit down!!!!!!!!!

    My poor poor instructor. LOL.
