Let's see... I have a lot. xD

"Sternum up!" (this is what I repeat to myself most often)

"Heels down, shoulders back!"

"Keep the candence."

"Falling off is against the rules."

"Look where you're going."

"Keep those hind legs jumping."

"Lengthen does not mean faster."

"Keep the march."

"More drive."

LOL. I absolutely LOVE that one. I will always remember it, I usually have a problem of looking at my horses neck, so when I do that, I will remember this phrase... (^_^)

I used to ride my uncle's horse, and it was in the very beginning when I really didn't know what I was doing. He was also yelling that at me. Sometimes, he switched it to, "his ears won't fall off if you look away." =]

LOL. I don't know why I do it, it is just such a habit.

When I used to help out my friend with her jumping, she tended to lean forward a lot, whether she be trotting or cantering, going over a jump or not...I told her one day 'you are not a tree in an earthquake,! you need to sit up when not jumping!' Now, whenever she starts to lean forward, she yells out 'I am not a tree in an earthquake!' Tehe. Whatever works to get your posture correct.

That would be my trainer..particularly with things I don't like repeating, like canter transitions or ground poles!
