Puxe and Push

So, a funny story we heard from Thomas was about one of his Canadian friends who went horseback riding. When he got on the horse, the horse took off and ran as fast as he could and wouldn´t stop. He was freaking out and the owner of the horse was saying in Portugese, Puxe! Puxe! (Which is pronounced, /poo´shuh/ like push) so he kept hitting the horse and ´pushing´ him. The word puxe is in fact PULL, and empurrer is to push. How confusing!
