Here’s one I hear all day, every day:
“Get his nose in!”
No mention of driving with the leg, no mention of anything else. Just the nose. With women who can’t even sit the trot their horse gives.
So when my friend is riding my old gelding, I make it a point to loudly tell her all the time “Quit riding his head and use your legs!” The trainer fan girls don’t catch on.
Trainer fan girls have been told by trainer that I’m some sort of brutal abuser because I have contact with my horses faces when I ride. Whaaaaaateverrrrrr.
