Driving in combination with miniature ponies
Exactly what is Combination Driving? It has its origins in events, but in three phases: Training - shows the horse's elegance, smoothness and readiness to work with its rider. Cone - the driving of a horse between 20 cone couples with turns and perversion.
Developed to show the horse's mobility and precision, ease and rapidity. Whilst excess pace is disheartened, there is a period permitted. Exceedance of the permitted period will result in a penalty. The marathon - a course taken in stages and with timekeeping, in which one part is run through an obstacle. This is a test of the horse's condition, audacity and readiness to get close to foreign things.
A number of associations provide a "green driver" skill set where the barriers are not limited in terms of duration to allow unexperienced riders to resolve problems without taking up more of the driver's work. On all other floors, the obstructions are clocked from the entrance to the departure. As this is a busy event location, it is perfect for the miniature horse.
Most of the time, mini cars - so-called "VSEs" or Very Small Equines - are already in use. They' re still ponies, just a smaller one. Combination driving provides a long-term, multi-level, entertaining and thrilling game. For many VSEs, the beginning of the sports is the general driving and driving out on the trailer.
To learn to train is a variety. Lower steps are elementary skills: turning, going, trot, stop and reverse, with precision. The competitions demand more skill from the horse, the competitions become longer with more steps and more crossings. All of these assessments can be viewed on the website of the African Driving Society:
Skittles are the next natural complement: Driving between skittles demands the precision of your training as well as the capability to quickly turn, extend and reduce your jog and manoeuvres - all abilities that form a foundation in it. While walking through the stages, the pins move nearer together and demand more precision, faster reactions, and the amount of elapsed by the course becomes the same.
Impediments are goals scored in alphabetic order. Only 3 goals are scored on the lower floors - A, B, C. As you move up through the floors, more goals are added until you drive A to F. There are usually several possible paths for the horse and rider, but all goals must be scored for the floor, in the order and in the right order.
At the bottom step, practice is to promote horse and rider. "Arenas Driving Trial, or ADT, is a one-day event that usually takes place in a hall. These come from the east of Germany, where snows and icy conditions serve as a deterrent to outdoor driving. ADSs will keep the horse in form in the three stages for the coming seasons, learn new abilities and just for enjoyment and community while working in the hall.
You seldom have endurance marathons, but a test, skittles and wearable dangers, sometimes 2 or 3 runs. Several states, with mild winter, have associations that organize one-day activities where the event location is outside, with different marathons, bigger bowling alleys and more solid obstructions. Combination driving shows, CDE' or shows approved by the organisation can take place in 1, 2 or 3-day shows.
