I do all of the above.

Sometimes when I walk down the hallway at school, I imagine myself just exploding into a bucking bronco and kicking my "hooves" against the lockers.

I "lope" and "Piaffe" around the house.

When my mom sends me to get something she forgot in the store, I imagine I am riding to save a calf in danger, and epic music plays in the background as I weave through the herd and jump over obstacles. One I get the, "calf", I gallop back to save it from the ravenous wolves.

I have replaced the word "girls" with "mares" before.

I paw the ground when I get impatient waiting in line.

Thats about it...basically I think like a horse.

I'll catch myself saying "ho" to my dogs instead of "stay" every now and then. I cluck at the dogs... and cats.

I also count strides between cracks in the sidewalk. "Land, 1, 2, 3, 4; 2, 2, 3, 4; 3, 2, 3, 4; 4, 2, 3, 4; 5, 2, 3, 4" ...Yeah, I count strides weird.

Um, I work for a vet and once in a while when I'm doing a nail trim, I run my hand down the dog's leg and tell it to 'lift' it's paw. As if I am going to pick it's hooves.

Surprisingly, track greyhounds tend to react nicely to this! lol

I thought I was the only person who caught myself half halting my car.
I also 'tsk' my daughter sometimes when she acts crazy, much like I do when my horse gets out of line.
I once yelled 'HO' to a girl at work who was about to run into me with a stack of plates. She looked at me funny... dang non-horse people!

To getter a better grasp of things, I often find myself comparing them to horse related things such as doing homework to mucking stalls and things like that. I get into more detail in my thoughts, but it would take me ages to explain my brain to you because I haven't figured it out myself.

hahaha! this is quite a silly thread! it's funny to hear what everyone does.

The only odd thing i did was when my boyfriend and i went to a movie a while back. The horse on the screen was pacing back and forth while the rider (some manly male actor) was speaking to the towns people. The neurotic and impolite pacing that the horse was doing was just too much... so i yelled out "WHOA!!"
i said it very loud. and people were looking at me like i had Tourette Syndrome.

Life seems mighty precious when there's less of it to waste.

i cluck at my dog, swing her leash around or wave my cowboy hat at her to get her to move. when im on my bike and i go over a speed bump i get into a two point and i always relate people to horses, like if they do something ill be like wow Sable does stuff like that and people get mad! what ever!! they'll just have to get used to it!

the hardest part of riding is the ground... yup sounds about right

Ok well...

I run like a horse,
I yell out 'WHOA!' when i want something to stop and yeah ya know,
When im in a car or bus and it goes up a hill i lean forward and when it goes down i lean back,
I click with my tongue to get people to go faster...

The list goes on!
I cant say everything.

Feeling down? Saddle up!

I do all of the "whoa", "ho", "easy", etc, and the clucking and kissing to things (animals, people, cars, things on TV....)
You have to be careful saying "ho" to people......
By the way, I always think of this time I was at the Cal Expo watching the colt starting competition, there was one horse who just didn't want to move off and even though we were far away from the pair, the ENTIRE audience was just clucking and kissing and saying "Come on, boy", etc, the entire time, without even thinking about it. There was such a sense of family to that, that we could all be weird together I loved that!

Also, when I was working a lot on putting a better stop on my gelding, getting him to stop off my seat and exaggerating the cue (sitting way back, moving my legs forward), and began doing the same thing while driving...sitting back a lot in the seat, lol
Also I've been known to pet the dashboard when the car does what I want it to...my old car had a lot of "personality", you had to drive it the right way to get it to do what you wanted it to do, and it was a bit testy, so I used that justify it
But now I don't know how I'll justify it with the new, easy car.
I try not to do it when there are passengers, anyway, though...

I forgot one thing. Whenever jumping is involved in gym I can jump a whole lot higher when I "canter" to the jump. We were doing high jump and I couldn't get myself over the bar for the life of me so at the end of class I cantered straight towards it and cleared it (it was even higher than I had tried it when doing it the 'right' way). Also, I do my gaits in school. It really annoys (sp?) when people say I'm galloping when I'm clearly cantering. lol.
