maybe we think your long exhasperating tip is to painful to read let alone to exhausting to try ...
"we"? Who are you talking about, you and the mouse in your pocket??
It's sort of funny that you're telling me to grow up with your hot pink letters :)
Exhausting? Painful? I'm sorry you're not capable of reading more than three lines...

Seriously , if I want to see a catfight and a huge 35 page drama on this forum, I'll know what to do.

I'll just type "Parelli". It always works here!

Look, I don't like the guy and his lady either, but could we refrain from jumping at each other's throats whenever we see their name typed?
It's derailing any thread, from feeding a horse to riding tips!

Let's try to keep our snapping and puking and whatever other digestion issues we might have out of this eh....

Ha, that was funny.
Start singing when you are nervous, that has helped me. Makes you breath and takes your mind off it.

Right, so about my riding tips that ring in my head:

"Don't haunch, heels down, hands down, breathe"

That's the main things I hear when I get to ride

I used to hum alot while riding.
I don't do it much anymore though, because some of my horses take it as a cue LOL

I bet that's a good relaxer in the ring, though.
I get told to pull my shoulders back alot, I tend to lean forward and I have bad posture as it is. 0_o

Sorry for the double post but I should add:
"If it's easy, its probably not right."
This helps me SO much when I get too comfortable riding. It reminds me to watch my EQ :p

Keep em coming! It's great to hear what others have been taught.
I have another one:

If going to the right is his good direction start out going left! No....you're other left! There ya go! *In reference to Sammy on the lunge line*

And one I yelled down the arena at a student "hold on he's pooping...no wait he's peeing STAND UP!!!" she looked so confused poor girl I had to explain it took pressure off her horses kidneys.

While lunging "stay behind and inside the horses inside shoulder and not by his hip...the 8th rib should be a good place*

I've never heard that... about the kidneys?
Of course its sort of rare that a horse pees while I ride it. LOL
