    Question Alphabet?

    For a 4h project, I'm creating a hunter/jumper alphabet which I will outline in a video.

    I need help with a few. Be creative! For example, "X" could be "extra" or something. I'm totally stuck, and I've weeded through my horse books and internet sites. Hehe

    A- attire
    B- bits & bridles
    C- connection **(as in like, the bond horses and riders have)
    D- diagonal
    E- equitation
    F- flat work
    G- grooming for shows
    H- Hacking
    I- Independent Seat
    J- Jump-off
    K- ???
    L- Leads
    M- Movement
    N- ???
    O- On the bit
    P- Protection
    Q- ???
    R- Refusals
    S- Safety
    T- Tack
    U- ???
    V- ???
    W- walking the course
    X- ???
    Y- ???
    Z- ???

    Any ideas?

    Sounds fun

    C- collection/concentration/counter canter
    K-knee/Kimblewick (which is a type of mild curb bit, I guess?)
    N-neck rein/numnah (which is a saddle pad?)
    Y-I second the yearling

    Edited to add:
    G-Grand Prix/girth/gait/gallop
