Equine Training Equipmenthorse training equipment
Profit from our more than 30 years of experiance in the fields of walking, longe stables, horse running belts and equipment. KONDI-Trainer is the indisputable No. 1 for professionals in Germany - this walking horse is really the system of your dreams. This is the perfect horse running belt for horse sports centres, horse rides and rides that require a system for additional power and exercise training with stepless velocity regulation (up to 10 km/h).
Multi-functional horse training system. One of the key advantages of this system is that the KONDI-Trainer is installed on the roof of the stadium. This new element no longer consists of metallic sticks, but of hanging synthetic sticks.
Settings and perceptions about horse training techniques in an online discussion forum
During the ISES Annual Meeting 2017, Lofgren, Allen and Brady, research scientists from Perdue University, presented their results of a survey on attitude and perception of training technique for horses in an on-line panel. In particular, the scientists investigated how hyperperflection, spores and nose straps are noticed in the fields of training, hunter/jumper and westernriding.
There is a limit to the amount of information that can be obtained on the opinion of riding associations on training technique and equipment. Quantitative analyses of on-line discussions in equitation are a potentially unexploited resource of information about people's thoughts on social affairs. It analyzed the attitude of dressage, hunter and westerns groups to the use of spores, nose straps and hyperperflection in on-line discussions.
We found a similarity and difference in the way these disciplinary groups saw social questions related to these themes. More and more research is being done into training technique and equipment for horses to investigate their physiological, mental and behavioral effects on the equine. Technological advancement offers riders infinite access to information about the training and managing of horses.
It may be difficult to grasp information about the attitude and perception of riding groups towards training practice, especially between different types of riding. Conducted in a quality context, this survey concentrated on the riders' attitude and perception towards training methods/equipment, reflecting in an on-line panel for riders. The contributions in the panel were chosen for analysing because of their inconspicuousness, which permitted anonymous ness and openness towards the participants' attitude.
We analyzed three special groups: Horse Showers, Hunter/Jumpers and Western. Strings from the forums were screened according to three topics that have been singled out in equestrian science publications as potentially endangering the well-being of equine riders: hyperperflection, spores and nostrils. Out of these groups, accidental contributions were chosen for topical analyses. Subject based analyses identify and examine samples in statistical information and have been used to identify similarities between the chosen bodies.
Predominant issues in all three disciplinary areas were aspects of well-being within their own disciplinary framework, adverse sentiments towards competitor judges/administrative authorities for "rewarding" the use of non-ethical practice, and justifications for the use of certain practice or equipment. Disciplinary contributions on hiperflexion in the training group led to issues of negativeness towards magistrates, directors and professionals.
Hunter/Jumper and Westerns groups mirrored the issues of not identify hyper-flexion as a preoccupation in their sports, adverse emotions regarding training, while also warranting cases where they have used similar practice to that necessary when a bad was used. Spores and nose straps led to issues of relativity towards different disciplinary fields, to deficits in understanding and to the legitimacy of practice within all three disciplinary groups.
Hunter/Jumper Group specifically mirrored an issue that is not a social issue and does not justify practice in the use of spores for "lazy" animals. It was the West that most reflects the issue of negative attitude towards training and the use of narrow nose straps. Further insights into the commonalities and disparities between disciplines in terms of opinion on training practice and the use of equipment as possible drawbacks to the horse's well-being were provided by this contents review.
Additional implication is the continuation of the investigation in this area and the use of these results for targeted information and communications with the riding public.
