Don't forget about "cantering" around when no ones looking (or maybe when they are..) just because it's easier than running like a human.

Or is that just me? LOL

Nope I've caught myself cantering before, even while people were looking.

I do dressage in my living room. Passage, piaffe, canter pirouettes, extended and collected trot, lead changes... I also pretend to be a Walker or a Paso Fino, and do Western pleasure. At school between classes, I'll speed rack down the hallways. At home, I pretend to be a hunter and jump over my foot stool.

I love the lowering our voices thing, very true.

I have caught myself saying, "Whooooooahhhhh," to my dogs many a time.

We have these new treats at the barn and they smell SO good!
But the taste isn't mutual.

^^^

Some people have problems training their horses like they train dogs; I train my dogs like I do my horses. I'm not sure if this is better or worse.

My pit bull responds to walk, trot, canter commands, knows "whoa" means stop, and knows "easy" means slow down. I also tie her leash with quick release knots. I tie everything with a quick release knot.

I use woah with my other animals and siblings . Also one day I was trying to get my little brother into his car seat and I "clicked" (like I would to get Phantom to trot/move faster and my mom looked at me and said "Cassandra! He's not a horse!" I was like "What did I do?" She started cracking up and saying I just clicked at my brother like he was a horse. I told her I honestly thought I said "get up" lol She doubled over laughing but was a little upset cause she thought I was treating AJ like a horse :roll: but I honestly didn't know I did it.....Darn you second nature

We have better shampoo for our horses than we do ourselves.
We have active conversations with our horses as if they were actually talking back
Our tack sheds are cleaner than our bedrooms
