As horse people we all like to cluck at things that are moving too slow for our liking! Sometimes it’s the car in front of us, kids, dogs that are in the way, or whatever might constitute a cluck. I remember watching a famous riders clinic where one of the students clucked to her horse, and he gave her a lecture about NOT EVER CLUCKING! I have been guilty of it, and yes if you are riding a young spirited horse in a warm up ring at a show and someone comes up behind you with their horse and gives a big cluck, it can be challenging! Clucking can become a habit, and also it is two points off in the show ring for any voice command, that includes clucking! What do you cluck at? Share your clucking stories!
