    While you've provided a reasonable explaination of the chosen words, that was not the author's intent. If you read the actual rule change proposal posted on the USEF website, the author of the...

    alternate cues

    As for cues, it might be a verbal out or asking with your seat. That's how my SS horses have been trained--no tapping on the shoulder with a toe.
