Voice commands my horse knows:
ho/woah: slow down
ch: stop that
click: move over/move on
walk: walk, downward transition
walk on: walk from a halt
and...(w/t/c):prepare for transition
good boy/CÚzar (his name): reward
HEY!: stop that NOW
I mostly use these for ground work and lunging, but I think it's good to know them in case of an emergency under saddle as well. However, it is important to know that voice tone is just as important, if not more so, than the actual word.
