    oh another one : livery is called "pension":D we also have demi-pension (half-livery) whereby the horse is shared either privately or by a school. DIY livery doesn't exist, or at least not in the South.

    A "pension" is also a boarding school or B&B. Both sound about right for a livery yard!

    The term lease is used where we would loan I think. Unless that's competiton horses I am thinking of. I have a lease but I am not allowed to ride it!

    In one of the old books I was reading shanks were legs.
    I can't recall what one now.
    @Jessey don't you remember I want sure on his version for cantering, running and gallop. They seemed to have another gait in there.

    By definition a "lease" is when you pay for something in order to use it, i.e. renting. So for horses I'd say that if you "lease" a horse you are paying for the privilege, whereas if it's "on loan" to you, you will be paying for their upkeep but not actually for HAVING them.

    Ha ha - I live in the Auvergne and started riding again last summer after a 15 year gap. I am having lots of fun and gradually learning the French vocabulary. There are times where the language throws me (eg. assiette (plate) for seat, changer la main (change the hand) for change the rein etc...) but I'm so happy to be back in the saddle and regret leaving it so long. I think I was worried that I wouldn't be able to understand anything but I'm enjoying the challenge and I've found a lovely instructor who is very patient and explains everything very well. I also look at https://www.lexiqueducheval.net/lexique_sommaire.html

    PIE PLATE I have not heard that but that's too funny.
    Newforsest love
    dismount and fall off.

    You can sort of tell a more English from western rider here.
    I think the western terms are really more out in the western states though.

    Many English have

    Sorry hit send by mistake
    English have Paddocks Western Corrals
    farms ranches

    To me I think of a cinch as a western mohair string and a girth as leather or neoprene
    We blanket our horses
    I really don't hear the term Livery over here but we have Livery lic plates on limo's etc
    Some places call them selves stables some farms.
    As a kid I would have thought of a Stables as a place to go rent a horse and a Farm where horses were raised.
    We really don't have haylege over here we have bagged Lucerne farms Dengi
    Haylege type hay is wrapped In large wrapped round "marshmallows" they call them and its for cows.
    My horse trailers are horse trailers.
    You do see a few "horse boxes" occationally that are stand alone with an engine but most are tag along or
    gooseneck trailers.
    Big horse moving company and people like Hallamore or Budweiser Or the RCMP with their musical ride
    have gigantic tractor trailers to move their horses.
    I kind of like Hallamore with their Clydesdales and they are very Local they to this day are still
    a "HEAVY MOVERS" company that started out with large wagons and clydesdales
    and go to fairs and parades with original wagons.

    The truckers union over here is the Teamsters Union going back to driving teams.
    Their logo has horses on it.

    We call round pens just that round pens.
    We have rings and arenas
    To me a ring is outside but an arena is under cover
    but some shows will list classes as in an outdoor or indoor arena
    or the outdoor ring.

    We call our helmets helmets.
    A lot of western riders over her DO NOT wear helmets and that's nuts to me.
    I totally CAN'T STAND to see at a gymkhana etc a rider on a nutty out of control horse
    with a base ball cap on and a stupid pony tail sticking out the back.
    but its their head.
    They make a western helmet over here its a bit big and cumbersome looking because it has to be
    fashioned over a helmet.
    I have one and also a couple years ago bought a soft felt cover for a helmet that is fashioned like a western hat.
    but most shows and venues even if it would be western pleasure show classes etc supposedly will not mark you down if you wear a helmet and not a western hat.
    Western riders in shows only ever seem to have western hats on though.

    Lots of venues here require kids to wear hemlets but not adults.

    New England area is very hunter jumper then dressage oriented
    Its much easier to find a hunter jumper show around at any given time in the summer.
    Than anything western.

    I'm lucky to have found a trainer that I will be able to get western dressage lessons around here but
    I don't think there are really any classes yet In dressage shows.
    That and versatility etc seem to be very popular in California but I'm on the other side of the country.

    Chaps are called chaps over here but there are schooling and show chaps the stove pipe leg ones.
    Chinks are shorter not skin tight and are western.
    Batwang chaps you see in rodeos and are quite ornate and big and floppy.

    Half chaps and Gaiters are the same thing mostly an English thing but I wear them and hand carved a decorative
    panel for them and have tassles on them.
    I also have a plain and fancy chinks.

    A bridle is a full head gear for a horse with reins bit etc
    A headstall is just the part you would put a bit on.

    Western use a breastcollar English mosty use martingales but there is an English breastcollar.

    The general term hackamore is bitless
    But there are bosal hackamores mechanical hackamores Jumping hackamores

    A side pull is a leather noseband on a bridle but a half breed also has a snaffle bit
    they are mostly western.

    Western have a saddle blanket or a saddle pad. Blankets are woven blankets Pads are generally thick felt.
    Lot of English have saddle cloths.

    Helmets here are riding hats :D

    To describe chinks to those who haven't seen them, they are a half length chap, similar to full chaps but they end just below the knee, they keep you dry when it rains and stop thorns stabbing you in the knees without being too hot. I have a lovely old set I picked up in a pawn store in Montana :)

    That was an awesome find!!

    This is not horsey different names for things don't have to cross the pond
    Just a few miles to another state.
    To me a milk shake is milk and ice cream swirled all together making a thick drink.
    HERE in Rhode Island if you don't go to a national chain like Mcdonalds Burger King etc
    but a mom and pop shop and ask for a chocolate milkshake,
    you get CHOCOLATE MILK.
    They call a milk shake a CABINET..
    To me a cabinet is something in my kitchen to put my dishes in.
    A submarine sandwich is a Gyro.

    Coke is a universal name for soda in a lot of places.
    The Midwest drinks POP that's their name for soda.

    I grew up with ketchup on a hamburger and mustard on a hot dog.
    Some places put ketchup mustard and mayonnaise on a hamburger.

    Here they put vinegar on French fries I put ketchup.


    Guess the 2 really different things in Germany were they were not bratwurst but the long thin sausage
    in a small hard roll and it stuck way out on each side -- they were good.
    And not putting sugar in whipped cream so if you got an ice cream sunday they put syrup on the ice cream and then whipped cream and then more syrup on top--to this day I still get a sunday here with more syrup on top and always
    get looks like I have 6 heads but I love it that way..

    I had always asked for Chocolate milk if I wanted just flavored milk.

    Now Virginia wanted to get what she called a gaiter for her grand daughter.
    It was a strap that goes near the knee if your not wearing tall boots?

    Forgot lol how many people pick up there horses FEET not hooves.

    I guess during the RCMP MUSICAL RIDE if you take a fall you have to buy the whole troupe a beer. Of all the times I've seen it at the Topsfield Fair over the years I have only seen one fall a few years ago.
    We talked to him after the performance and he said it was going to be a very expensive nite for him.

    He said the fall was mot the worse of it ..
    The while ride is continuing on around you and trying to remount and get back in formation is far worse.
