Anyone who has learned a second language knows that it can be difficult to master. Analyzing and committing to memory all of the nuances, subtext and origins of some phrases and idioms can be mind-boggling. And it’s no different when learning to speak “Trainer”.

Trainer is a special and unique language. It’s really not geographically bound, but is more tied to the culture that espouses it. The phrasing and meaning behind Trainer words can sometimes take years to master. Linguists and etymologists would have a field day with it. But don’t worry, we’re here to translate a few key phrases and words for you to help make you Trainer fluent. Knowledge is power.

“How are you doing today?” Upon arrival to a lesson, this is used not only as a warm greeting, but as an opening for assessment. The next words that come out of the rider’s mouth will help determine exactly how mean the Trainer-speaker can be today.

Now, what happened there?” You didn’t do what I asked you to do the first time.

“Go do that again.” DEAR GOD, CAN YOU EVER SEE A FREAKING DISTANCE? DO YOU NEED GLASSES, SON?

“Don’t go so far forward with your shoulders next time.” Do you want to be a lawn dart?

“That was a little bold, but you made it work.” Maybe don’t go so fast, and/or have a spot from 50 miles away. Seriously, you scare me.
