    Default Stuff My Coach Says

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnZgW...1&feature=plcp

    I don't know what happened in the class before that one, but I like how the coach tells her to "trot in with a vengence!" LOL I just about spewed coffee. Am I the only one? Maybe...

    It's not mine, but I think it's hilarious. My coach talks to me like that sometimes, and ALWAYS does the whistle of approval after a good ride! Also,

    I'm always walking around at shows and hearing coaches say things to their students; and out of context it's just plain funny. Or remembering something my coach has said, and realising it's ridiculous. But it completely makes sense to me!!

    I think my favourite line would be when I heard a coach say to a tiny kid on a tiny pony: "God gave you reins for a reason kid, USE 'EM!" The coach was kind of joking though, and the kid was smiling. I actually laughed out loud, thank goodness no one heard me. Anyone else got any good videos like this? Or things they've heard?

    At a clinic from a well known German trainer:

    "Ride the walk like your horse is a unicorn and is going to ram someone with its horn"

    I'm not even sure the visual on that? Ram something with its horn? Hahaha .
