    Lol that's great I've clucked at shopping carts, my dog, family, and random members of the public, in addition to the time when my mother wasn't driving fast enough so I leaned forward, clicked, and said "git up" before I even realized what I was doing lol

    Its similar, I work with my father who works with horses. He sees a large number of horses each day. The end result is he all them all "son". Its always "easy son" or "whoa son". I apparently also do this and it was pointed out by a friend when I was working a horse that I used to own. Clearly I know his name and its not son.

    After my truck has gone up a big hill I pat it on the dashboard and tell it that is a "good boy".

    I do this alll the time.
    I lean forward when I speed up my truck (perfect chair position in my seats! LOL).
    I sit deap and lean back when slowing down or stopping my truck.
    I pat the dash and tell her she's a good girl when make it up hills.
    I say "hey" going around sharp bends and try my best to stay sitting up straight and not lean with her, haha. Which is actually very difficult since it has somewhat of a lift on it and leans like crazy (scared to bump it to a 3" lift, haha).
    I apologize if I react too hashly when something bad happens, especially because it really was my fault since the poor girl doesn't even have a mind like my mare does xD
    I cluck at EVERYTHING, except for lights..I just wait like I'm in an eq lineup, haha. For stops signs I make sure we're all squared up and not "standing" wonky, lol.
    And I make sure I tell her to "git" when we come out of a green light because I always get to the speed limit ASAP, just because I love how she roars getting up to speed xD
    And sometimes I catch myself holding my steering wheel like I would be holding split reins, lmao!

    When I was younger I used to use a stick on my bike as a crop....but now that I'm older I've upgraded to driving my car like its a horse, complete with sitting up extra tall and back when making a tight turn and patting the dashboard after a quick acceleration or "life saving" stop.

    I also trained my dog a few with horse commands so I could have my own little horse at home, (mostly for when we're jogging so I don't have to yank on the leash to get her to slow down. She knows whoa, easy, clucking (means trot for her), canter, and she even knows how to leg yield, but only to the left (to get her back to the curb after we pass a parked car of course! ).

    I also hold the leash like reins.

    OMG, I just laughed so much...
    I guess I am not a fully horse crazy person, as I never do that
    For a laugh I tried to lunge my dog with a halter on, he never got the running in circle thing though..
    But I always pat my cars and tell them they are good - I always thought its because I love cars too!

    Too funny!
    I do this when on my riding mower. I will sit and lean back when going downhill, or I will use leg and move over when turning, also will turn head to look ahead at where I am going.

    I found myself telling my three yr old niece to whoa on a nature trail yesterday, and both my dogs know whoa. Rockford will even stop and look at me when I yell it.

    I too pat my trucks dash and tell her she's a good girl. Especially when we get over seventy and she doesnt overheat...

    Glad to know im not the only crazy horsetard :)
