The Devil's Dictionary For Equestrians

Okay so a while back in English class we were doing a little side writing and our teacher asked us to do a 'devil's dictionary' of a hobby/sport/activity we liked. The teacher being a equestrian, we both did a devil's dictionary for equestrians.

So basically you take a noun/adjective/adverb/verb/etc. and all you do is basically make it sound bad, sarcastic, etc.

So I'll start and you'll get the idea. (:

Green broke (adj.)- A horse that has little to no training, who had a person ride it without being seriously maimed and/or hospitalized.

Equestrians (n.)- A group of society that keeps hospitals running.

Predator (n.)- A object that moves or a object that doesn't move. These predators consist of: Falling leaves, plastic bags, garbage cans, etc.

Alrighty, hopefully you get the idea. :P
Your allowed to use the same words but please use different definitions.

Have fun! I'd love to see these!

For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

Oooh -I loved the Devil's Dictionary

Dead broke horse -a mythical creature such as a pegasus or a unicorn
Trainer -an individual savy enough to make money telling you things you already know
Cowboy -a man with boots in a large hat and even larger belt buckle
Cowgirl - a woman with boots in a large hat, rhinestone ear rings, and a large belt buckle
English rider -individual in tight pants and jacket holding a stick

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Spirited- more like posessed

Bomb proof- wont move under any circumstances

Great trail horse- has two speeds, slow and slower

Great barrel horse- has one speed(faster) and no brakes

Great at walk and trot- but theres no stopping him once you get him to run

Jumper- clears pasture fence daily

Ottb- runs fast only to the left

Kids horse- stick horse

Great bloodlines- same lines on top and bottom,consistency is key!

Equestrian- person who enjoys being snotted on, bitten, and kicked. Enjoys clearing ice buckets in the freezing cold,
moving hay in blistering heat, scooping mountains of poop and paying money to do it.

Potential Barrel Horse - previous owner didn't feel a need to teach the meaning of 'whoa'

No Vices - as long as she's turned out 24-7 without other mares and no wooden fences
