There must be a technical error - I can't see your pictures. Did you post them right?

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

For a person to be an effective animal trainer, the person must be smarter than the animal in question.... which is why some breeds/types are harder to train than others!

another thing, does it matter how i use my body language and voice to give a command? or can i use any body language and words?
I think your horses will get used to what you do *consistently* but I do find using rather obvious bodylanguage sometimes is helpful. Eg. When teaching a newbie, exaggerate your cues, including bodylanguage - get 'big', bring your own energy up when you want the horse to respond with energy, relax & sort of slump a bit when you're wanting to stop/slow.
