The two are discussing the animal when the pastor says, "Before I let you buy this horse, you need to know that is a very *religious* horse. In order to make him do what you want, you need to use a very specific set of commands.
"Instead of saying 'giddy up', you need to say, 'Praise the Lord', and instead of 'whoa', he responds to 'hallelujah'."
"Hallelujah and Praise the Lord. Got it." The two close the deal and go their separate ways.
Several weeks later, the cowboy is riding his horse through a stretch of uncharted territory when he sees some dangerous looking cliffs ahead.
"Praise the Lord!", he exclaims, but the horse just goes faster and faster, right toward the cliffs. Panicked, he screams, *"Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!"* to no avail.
Just in time, he remembers the correct phrase. *"Hallelujah!"*, he shouts, and the horse comes to a screeching halt just 4 inches from the cliff face.
"Phew, that was a close one," he remarks, relieved. "Praise the Lord."
