Sense of Humor - Horse’s View of the World

It's been said that if you don't have a sense of humor then you need to re-look a lifestyle with horses, cause as surely as the Sun rises in the morning, you're gonna need a good sense of humor.

I got a kick out of the funny horse definitions below, hopefully you will too.

Arena: Place where humans can take the fun out of forward motion.

Bit: Means by which a rider's every motion is transmitted to the sensitive tissues of the mouth.

Bucking: Counter-irritant.

Cross Ties: Gymnastic apparatus.

Dressage: Process by which some riders can eventually be taught to respect the bit. Isn't dressage those people wearing funny pants and hats?

Farrier: Disposable surrogate owner; useful for acting out aggression without compromising food supply.

Fence: Barrier that protects good grazing.

Gate Latch: Type of puzzle.

Grain: Sole virtue of domestication.

Hitching rail: Means by which to test one's strength.

Horse Trailer: Mobile cave bear den.

Hot Walker: The lesser of two evils.

Jump: An opportunity for self-expression.

Longeing: Procedure for keeping a prospective rider at bay.

Rider: Owner overstepping its bounds.
