Yeah, I live in Cow Hampshire, Part 37

Spotted along a back road in Windham, New Hampshire, where a horse trail crosses the road:

Ha...I used to ride steeple chase (that's racing a horse on a cross country trail, and it's not easy to do, for even most men, much less me, a woman), and someone asked me a while ago to comment on a filmed scene wherein two jockeys exchanged barbs and threats and taunts and such while in the act of running a race course, by far an easier task than competing in a steeple chase course, and my only comment was that the only thing I've ever said or heard said by jockeys/riders on any competitive course I've ever ridden was, "Whoa" and "Go."

...because the horses understand "whoa" and "go" and that's all you need, much less have time amd effort for, while actually racing a horse. All those other filmed moments with filmed dialogue, it's all big screen fantasy. Everything in the reality of racing/riding a horse is about body language, since it's the horse's point of view that matters.

So, I always laugh when I see filmed scenes that involve horses, all the verbal humans with all that language, when "whoa" and "go" are about all anyone ever needs to say, in words, anyway. Well, plus "heyaaaahhh," which is pretty well understood in the right tone of voice.
