Riding English : wearing tight jodhpurs and remaining in a tilted-forward two point at all times. Being snooty of course.

Riding Western : wearing jeans, being tough, laughing at people who post to the trot. Looking down at English riders of course.

Starting a Horse : get advice from a trainer about where to put the ignition key. Rev the accelerators and go.

Rug: the expensive Axminster that you should put down on the floor of your horses stable if you really love him

Discipline : saying 'no no my love' to your horse when he barges you out of the way to get to his food
nuisance and Stichy like this.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Bread/breading: when a mamma horse and a dadda horse love each other very much they put forth their ingredients together to make a bun in the oven. Am I going to get in trouble for this one?

Considering everyone went over the peevish vocabulary, I will head back on with one common acronym that I JUST googled.

DH = Dear Husband, Darling Husband, Dearest Husband, etc.

I knew it was something about the hubby, but I was pretty convinced it was something of the sort of '**** Husband' or 'Dumb Husband'. Once I thought it could be that it glued to my memories! But for others like me, here is your solace.

Buttinthedirt, I wondered about that one for ages too. When I see DH, DS, and DD I have always assumed that it's husband, son and daughter - but I didn't really know.

For a long time I thought lol was 'lots of laughs' rather than laugh out loud. But I prefer to type ha ha ha

And I am never comfortable with IMHO which I think means 'in my honest opinion'. That always seems unnecessary to me - having just typed something surely it is obvious that it is your opinion?....

And to be honest I am still a little vague on what a 'Come to Jesus Meeting' is. I have visions of a whip, a carrot stick, and a bible.

My favorites
IMO -a disclaimer stating that while the author thinks you are absolutely wrong, there is a microscopic chance that they may have bad information but not likely.

Coming to Jesus - a ritual which at some point either you or the horse will find religion and see the light at the end of the tunnel. In most instances it is you not the horse that has the epiphany, and realizes you have been going about things all wrong. Horse licks lips and says "Can I get a Hallelujah!"

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

And pedantic. It's good to be pedantic. Then you can be persnickety about other people's grammar and spelling and peevish when they don't appreciate you taking time out to correct them.

Maybe Pat Parelli could add those "P"s to his other P's. You know, something like Perfect Practice makes Persnickety People Particularly Peevish.
