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
