And vice versa.

If you're having a problem with something EVERY time you ride that you really want your trainer/instructor's help to fix, the next time you see the trainer, your horse will be the most perfectly behaved lady/gentleman.

When you tell your trainer: "____'s been so good this week!", then as soon as you get into a lesson, the horse will proceed to prove you wrong with every ounce of determination it has.

Love it! So true!

I used to ride a lesson horse named Murphy when I was a kid, I rode him a LOT. He was a sneaky little thing and for some reason I always rode him when someone came to watch my lesson, and he always did something really silly (he liked to jump straight in the air sometimes, and if the other horses were cantering he would try to follow them, and then keep going, and going and going... haha. He sure taught me to ride, though!

I came up with this one last night (cough cough, ahem).

The bigger your butt, the more likely you are to fall on a boney part of your body.

These are fantastic and so true! Although head collars/halters and leadropes seem to disappear just as quickly! Also, the days I'm not riding my horse comes in spotlessly clean - days I want to ride I need safety goggles and a face mask to de-muck him!
