    Haha my trainer does that... "just ride the pace, don't worry about the distance..." and 10 seconds later, "what kind of distance was THAT?"
    Hmph - hypocrites!

    It's not a quote exactly but my old trainer (also a judge) had a great note on his judges card: TOT
    It stands for "take up tennis."

    He also says "If you're not going to listen to me, I'm not going to teach you, ride in and dismount"

    Trainer: "Ohhhh...[insert horse here] is having rearing fits? Have Kate get on him."

    Employee: "You don't want to get on him?"

    TRainer: "Hell no, I'm not getting killed today."

    When we kept breaking from canter to trot on that bloody circle: "Ok, so you pressed the 'Whoa G'Dammit' button when you wanted the 'Whoa' button....Don't press the 'Whoa G'dammit!!

    When my chicken horse started galloping courses instead of stopping: "His name's Dragoon, isn't it?? Then DRAG-ON, Baby!! ."

    When I innocently ask for a break on anything, she innocently replies: "No..." [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    "Ok, let's try that again and jump the jump this time..."

    "Try that again......Try that again....Try that again.....OK, DO that again."

    oh...i've got tons! (but i can't think of them all right now!) my trainer Nicky is British so it makes it all the better!

    (about getting a new car) "I'm NOT getting a lime green bug!"

    (to Palais, who's itching her leg during a lesson) "You've got 23 hours in a day to do that! Stop!"

    (to my friend who was being lunged and was told to exagerrate her posting) "It looks like you're f***ing the saddle!" (sorry about that!)

    (about Palais' ears) "She has donkey ears"

    that's all i can think of now...i'm still cuckling about that lime green bug quote from last week's lesson.... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    "This is called under saddle lunging, when you can no longer feel your arm, change directions."

    "I want to see your mad face. That was a good mad face, until you fell off, then it was more of an ouch face."

    "When I said go on the inside of the green jump, I didn't mean shave it off to nothing. Don't do that."

    "Use your legs!! Wait, I forgot, you don't really have any, use what you have of your legs!!! wait, you are... Pretend you have more leg and use it!!!!"

    "You say you used to play volleyball? Perhaps..."

    In a schooling area: "Don't hit him on the shoulder, he'll go backwards, hit him on the butt, he'll go forwards, what would you do if I hit you on the butt?" another trainer at another jump answers before I can " I would go home..."

    "Ok, so what did we learn from this pleasant experience??"

    And the classic:

    "And, what happened there??"

    I just can't think of them right now [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

    "What was that?!! get agressive! (we end up charging the fence) okay not quite THAT aggressive."

    "Feeling cheeky today are we??"

    after my horse launched himself over a 2ft fence 2 strides early and cleared it by way more than it needed to be cleared by... oh wait I didn't get a response, my coach was in the dirt peeing her pants because she was laughing so hard. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

    Me "you're going to get dirty lugging those poles around, you don't like getting dirty"
    Coach "me naw! Dick doesn't stick to me... I mean uh dirt. DIRT doesn't stick to me"

    "well that was ugly wasn't it?!"

    I forgot this one!

    After I had a really bad crash with horse catchin a toe, flipping over, rolling on me, I got stepped on...the whole 9 yds (aka not bouncing right back up and pretending nothing hurt). My trainer casually strolls over, looks down at me and says:

    "Are ya dead?"

    was constantly perplexed that my littl ehorse WHiskey was constantly saving my ass when I got ahead of him. He's little (think 15.1 TOPS) and we were going Training. If I got the SLIGHTEST bit ahead he couldn't always make it...So he'd stop. I of course would fly in front of the saddle, but before I could come off, my loyal steed [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] would snap his head back up (He was looking at the fence...I mean he HAD to see what I thought was so interesting about the base of it) and pop me back in the saddle.

    Finally Chrissy had enough...she walked over grabbed my leg and Yanked me off my horse yelling

    From super-model height trainer to not-at-all-tall me: "Stretch your leg down. More. More. That's it? Really? That's as far as your leg goes?! Wow, that's barely clearing the flap of that saddle - it's cute, in a sad, sad way. Maybe we should get you a smaller saddle..."

    And, when I borrowed her saddle and couldn't jack the stirrups up any more so I was riding 4 holes long: "Whoa! What happened?! You sprouted legs!! No, you can't pull your stirrups up - you actually look like you have legs!"

    And, when we were trying to feed my 3yo birthday cake: "He's blowing snot on it so you'll stop eating it - he's a smart horse. He knows chocolate cake means fat mom means more to carry around. He's thinking of your own good, really.."

    During a lesson where she had to tell me the most simple things over and over: "There are only FIVE phrases any yahoo has to know before calling themselves a riding instructor. I can get a tape of those five things for you, if you'd like to take lessons from that instead.. No?"
