Young Horse Dictionary

In this article, I will providing definitions for what our commands mean to the young horses we’re trying to train. This article is for entertainment purposes only.

On the ground
What you say: "This is a saddle."
What he hears: "This is an alien monster from out of space come to devour you. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!"

What you say: "Whoa!"
What he hears: "We’re in danger! Here, take this lead rein and drag me to safety! I don’t care how battered and bruised I get!"

What you say: "NO!"
What he hears: "Oh, please do keep doing that! It’s just the most delightful game!"

What you say: "Walk."
What he hears: "Gallop."

What you say: "Trot."
What he hears: "Gallop."

What you say: "Canter."
What he hears: "Gallop."

What you say: "Gallop."
What he hears: "Please jump the arena face and gallop away as far as you possibly can."

What you say: "Stand!"
What he hears: "Please practise your dance steps! Don’t forget to step on my feet to get the correct sound effects!"
 
In the saddle
What you say: "Jump that cross!"
What he hears: "Stay as FAR as you can away from that horse-eating monster! NO! Seriously, don’t go near it. It’ll bite your hooves! It will!"

What you say: "Trot in a straight line."
What he hears: "Serpentine in working trot."

What you say: "Canter."
What he hears: "Fly leap, and proceed in working ‘bucking fit’ to gate."

What you say: "Calm down!"
What he hears: "Please buck me off right now, I really have been dying for some flying lessons!"

What you say: "Halt."
What he hears: "Tug at my hands as much as you can, and keep on going!"

What you say: "It’s okay, it won’t hurt you."
What he hears: "Nowhere is safe! Everything is out to get you… LEAVE ME, SAVE YOURSELF!"

What you say: "Bad horse."
What he hears: "Excellent work today, my valiant steed! You’ve carried out all my instructions perfectly! I simply cannot wait to do all this again tomorrow!
