Place the horse in front of the carriage
To teach a horse how to ride is a lot of pleasure, but there are certain dangers involved." Throughout the entire workout, find the help of a driver. First of all, leave the car or the stroller out. Driver trainings start with the floor work. Do not use a full-cheeked bridle that could get caught in the leash. Use a D-ring, an egghead or a bridle with a detached cheeks.
Practise using two ropes and prevent confusion. In case of any doubts, leave the line behind. In order to keep your horse's jaws safe for the first lesson, fasten the lanyards to the holster cheeks instead of the jaw. Allow your horse plenty of patience and encourage him to develop trust at all phases of the course.
"against the backdrop of my horse? "The fact is, yes, your horse can learnt to ride. It' a trial and it won't go on over night, says driver coach Kate Beardsley from Alfalfa, Oregon.
However, the end results are as much enjoyment as you will ever have with your horse. If your horse is not intended to ride, the floor exercises associated with giving lessons to a horse to ride will help to reinforce your relationships and create trust - both your horse and your horse. When you go beyond this point - and we are hoping that you will get the help of a qualified driver-instructor.
"There' s more chance of something going bad in driver practice than in driving," warns Kate. Drivers' deaths when they occur are nasty and frightening. Help from someone who knows what they are doing can help avoid an accident and make the ride comfortable and safer. A seasoned driver can ensure that there are no gaps in your horse's education, inspect the harness for security and make sure the carriage is correctly adjusted and fitted to your horse.
This is Kate's trial to train a horse to draw and ride. It can take either a few or a few weeks, according to the horse, before the individual stages are completed, she says. Spend some of your free day and let your horse gain self-confidence. Driver trainings are about the trip, not just about the goal.
In order to get going, you need a place that is strong enough to work with your horse. Ensure that the area is free of obstructions that your horse could get caught on and that the doors are locked and secured. You also need a location in your area. It is a place where you stack and stop all your workout gear to change the turning points.
You will soon notice that your horse is supposed to stop when you put it there. Standstill, says Kate, is an incalculable learning experience for any moving horse. It will also help you to organize yourself with all the necessary equipment to help your horse to ride on the floor.
Lungeing is not a large part of John Lyons' practice and Kate does not regularly yearn for her saddlehorse. However a good knowledge of lunging is indispensable for a horse on horseback. It not only teaches the horse to ride forwards and backwards, but also affirms the important oral instructions that a horse must be taught and followed.
Longing will also help you to get used to a long line, but this requires practise. One important comment about lunging a horse in the future: "Don't let the horse turn when it stops," says Kate. "Lots of ponies turn around and face you, especially when they've been worked in a round pens.
" When the horse turns around and faces you, when you begin long distance and floor riding, the two ropes can twist and you have become uncontrollable. It can be a possible confusion, especially for someone new to two-line work. In order to begin long linings, Kate selects two long longlines with different colours.
She says the colour contrast will help you memorize which side of your teeth is associated with which side of your hands. When you don't have practice or riding school, you can use your bike to start riding on the road. Simply use a string or bracelet to bind the stirrup under your horse's stomach.
Only make sure that the horse does not get stuck in the harness or stapes. Next you choose the direction in which the horse should go. To do this, fasten both leashes to the holster or ring and lead the leash through the lefthand stapes and keep the leash (and the whip) in your lh.
You' re going to keep the right line, just like when lunging the horse. It' an open line, because it is only attached to the horse' heads. As soon as you are there, get your horse on the group. Grip the leashes so that the horse cannot tread on them but is loosely enough to be slightly loosen.
When your horse wants to ride, it has to get used to things that go to shit, says Kate. Even better, you want your horse to thoroughly get used to the feeling of the line before starting riding instruction, so the relationship is no suprise. This way he will be less prone to step out or bucking if he has the feeling that the ropes are cuddling around his butt, hanging down and touching his feet, or, even worse, getting caught under his cock.
Please see item "Get Your Horse Rope Broke", page 36. They want to protect themselves and give the horse trust. If you take him down to the point of passage or whoa, begin to put downward and downward pressures on both of them, just as you would with the rein if you were ride. Kate says the ride on the road is more than ploughing a horse by drawing the rein.
Instead, imagine that you are keeping the horse level and letting him out into a curve. Long lines become riding on the floor when you move out of the ring and work the horse from behind. Rather than stand in a fixed place, you also move by following and controlling the horse. It' s a change when you're in the midst of a workout - one minute you're in the midst of it, the next thing you do is drive the horse.
It is a big step forward in his driver train. In order to operate the button, you begin to drop behind the horse while you are still on its side and put downward force on your outer line to adjust the horse and force it out of the circuit. Commend your horse when he leaves to gain self-esteem.
Pay particular attention that your horse's rear hooves cannot get into your face, breast or stomach. If Kate is behind the horse, at least one horse length will fall back. When you are on the horse side, place yourself near his waist and side. You should have easy access to your horse's jaws with your riding ropes.
They do not want a hatch line that grips their horse's jaws when pulling. Instead, keep uniform contact on both pipes. Then instead of ploughing into a curve, let go of the push on a reins to turn the horse. On the other hand, the slight excitement that you keep up will lead your horse.
"Then the horse turns slightly to the right and bends his body," Kate states. Switch sides from right to lh and let the ropes fly around a little on your horse's back. If, at any point, your horse seems to be losing self-esteem or feeling reluctant, go back to longlining in a group, which drives him forward and helps to generate swing.....
This is not only for your horse. You will be able to ride better on the road the more you deal with the leash. As soon as you are comfortable, you can get your horse used to the harness. Until then, you didn't need anything in particular, except two longlines.
It is now the right moment to put in a harness to train your horse. "Kate recommends that you buy the best top-of-the-range dishes you can buy. "If you want to connect a car, you want to be sure that your harness is working and that nothing breaks.
Kate generally discourages the use of long harness, although she admits that there are some very beautiful and costly plastic dishes on the open air shelves. Whether you're riding a draught horse or a minivan, you still want the best and most secure harness you can buy. Handicrafts can change, so find yourself a resource such as a regional riding association or an expert instructor to help you.
When you buy a used harness, make sure it is in good condition. Always check your harness for abrasion before using it. When you get used to his new harness, you will long for him again. Begin one by one and let things fly around a little while you lunge your horse in both ways.
Kate suggests that for this part of the ride, as with any other part of the harness, the horse be introduced to a blinkered snaffle (also known as a "closed snaffle"). "She says, "The horse should be able to do every move up to this point in both the open and enclosed fences.
As soon as your horse is longing with his chest neck and surcingsle on the spot, you can move on longlines and floor in his new attire. Take this opportunity to validate the workout you have already done and look for anything that seems to make your horse unsafe or insecure.
At this point your horse should have the steer downwards. It should also know how to stop, stay still and return on the road. Now' it' suck for him. "You' ve got to tell a horse to drag against his chest even if what he pulls is as if he's stuck," says Kate.
"All you have to think about is a horse that pulls a cart through dark sands - he has to go on. "Kate is teaching her horse to tug by fixing weighty strings to the harness. Cables have a double function, giving the harness extra strength and strength. When the horse is feeling good, Kate steps on the ends of the rope to generate excitement.
Simultaneously she pushes the horse forward with her own sound and, if necessary, a stroke of the lash. If the horse moves forward, it lets go of the cable and lets it jump forward, which only contributes to the general desensitisation of the horse. If the horse is satisfied with the cables, Kate will add PVC tubes that serve as waves to the carriage.
While the horse is self-confident, it lets the tubes jump, pull and drop out of the harness while driving the horse on the floor. Finally, the horse is taught to pull a tyre that is fastened to the harness using the harness's soft harness cables. Its constant tyre mass is similar to that of a cart and contributes to the traction.
This sluggish tyre also helps the horse to get used to the fact that something follows him when walking and trotting. If you begin to pull the tyre with your horse, you will want to be positioned behind the tyre or on the side of the horse to ensure that you do not get entangled.
When you have come this far in your driver development, ask your rider if you and your horse are prepared to take the next big step: to hang your horse on a cart. Do not be amazed or disheartened if your horse wants to take the same action you just took with your horse.
An experienced and reliable coach will want to be sure that the horse is fit to ride. Kate actually claims that she will never ride a horse - no matter how much the owners tell her - without guiding him through every stage of the coaching procedure. It is important for Kate to become familiar with the horse's foundations and to show her all the practice gaps gradually.
This also gives her the opportunity to get to know the horse better. Confidence between horse and rider is the top priority when it comes to travel.
