Cavaletti JumpsGavaletti jumps
Cavaletto ("cavaletti", singularly used in English) cavaletto) are small jumps, initially made of timber, which are used for the horses`basics. The majority of the tracks are about 10 cm in width and 3.0 m long. 1 ] The slides are placed in solid handles, usually in "X" form, which can usually be arranged in one of the three specified height of a few centimetres above the floor up to a max. of about 46 to 61 centimetres (18 to 24 inches).
Non-standard grinded slides are sometimes referred to as "cavaletti" in non-formal vocabulary. It can be used for floor exercises with the trainer, who works a horses on a lunging line or in freedom, as well as for the ride on the horses. The Cavaletti are used by both British and West riders.
Cavaletti, created by Federico Caprilli, is intended to help a young rider achieve better equilibrium, adapt his crotch length and relax and tone his musculature. When used at their lowermost point as a floor rail or at a height of no more than about 30 cm (12 inches), they can be adjusted to promote an appropriate inseam.
As they are placed nearer or further apart than the physical step of a horses, they promote the extension or reduction of the step. As " gymnastics " in combination with other vaulting obstructions in a ring they help the rider to get close to a barrier with the right pace and inseam.
In higher altitudes they become small jumps to bring young ponies or beginning horsemen to the jump. Distance as floor rail between 3 and 3. Cavaletti are 5 ft (0.91 and 1.07 m) apart, promote a short walk when trotting or jogging, further apart, a series of Cavaletti promote a longer, more extensive walk.
From a distance of about 1.8 to 2.1 metres they promote a slower gallop or a line and at distances of 9 to 12 ft (2.7 to 3.7 m), according to the height and step of the single rider, they help to adjust the correct speed of a rider when approaching an obstruction or moving away from it.
There' re a number of security problems with Cavaletti. They must be set up in such a way that they represent a trade-off that is strong when slightly caught by a horse's foot or foot but still moves or gives way when stumbled or forcibly touched. Defaults must be such that a rider cannot keep a foot in the "X" default when trying to escape or run away from the Cavaletti.
Cavaletti, which are not intended for stacking, can dangerously drop if they are piled up and then overturned. Stalks should have square or round corners to prevent them from being cut when hit by a fallen horseman or stalk.
