You know that your horse is driving and has already towed a horse before you hitch him in for the first in. When there are uncertainties and you have not seen the horse pull a car voluntarily or the horse has not been ridden for some considerable period of the year, begin driving the horse on the floor to prevent possible wreckage.
This work on the floor is not meant to train a horse that has never been ridden before, but rather as an overview of drills to check whether the horse has actually ridden before and to freshen up the memories of a horse that has not yet been ridden.
Before connecting to a car, the horse must be able to carry out these drills properly. Driving in the harness without a harness can take several weeks to even a few month until the horse is prepared for the next stage. You' ll know that the horse is prepared when: the horse feels good and has accepted all parts of the harness; the horse "walks" on order; "trots" on order; stands and stands still for a long period; returns only on order; and turns.
As soon as the horse has understood the above instructions, gradually insert it into the car. Don't attach the horse directly to the wagon. Let someone guide the horse with a leaden shaft and a holster under or over the bridles. Drivers should accompany the horse's hind legs with the rein as if they were in the car.
There are two other assistants who should keep the carriage shanks on both sides of the horse and pull the carriage while the horse is running. As soon as the horse uses the car's sound and the feeling of the waves that touch its sides as it turns, the assistants can gradually introduce the waves into the rear semi-trailers to familiarise the horse with the car's load.
Don't hang up the tracks. As soon as the horse has accepted the feeling of the car's load, the tracks can be hitched in. If the horse needs to be unhitched quickly, one man should be at the horse's front, the rider should still walk on the side and the other two helpers should be at the side of the wagon.
As soon as the horse seems calm, the rider can step into the car, but it is a good way to keep the headed ball until the horse is used to pull it. The whole procedure may seem sluggish and superfluous, but in the long run it can avoid many long-term injuries that can lead to permanent damage to the horse while driving.
Horse riding needs a certain temper. If a horse is willing to pull a coach, it may still be too much to use in the harness, although it is secure under the seat. When you need to go, find a calmer horse. However well they behave under the harness, not all of them are well treated under the harness.
Since you know that the horse will be pulling a car, there are many other precautionary measures and exercise methods that must be taken and followed before the horse is put on the street or in pub. Especially if you or your passenger are in the coach, you should be wearing an ASTM certified protective film.
Drivers' incidents occur without prior notice and are often serious. When the horse has buckled up, it should be standing still while hanging from the hook. Whenever possible, let someone guide the horse when you hook it in. It is a must for any horse show, fun ride or other activities, no matter how good your horse is at home.
You should never put your faith in your horse in a foreign area. There' are odd sounds, odours, horses and other things that will trigger even the quieter one. When someone has helped the rider hook the horse in, it is the rider's job to verify the other rider's work to make sure everything is correctly aligned, bent and secured.
DO NOT take off the bridles of a horse attached to a cart and never attach a horse that does not carry bridles. Do not bind a horse in one piece, and never bind a horse hanging from a coach, or to a pole or pendant. Unmount the horse from the coach before binding it.
Do not let a horse hang unsupervised on a coach, not even for a second. It' only a split second before something sudden frightens a horse. Young offspring or persons who have no experience with a horse are not advised as guests on the beginner's car.
In emergencies, the customer or bridegroom on the car should be able to help the drivers well. Do not bind yourself or your guests to the car. Drivers should be the first one in the coach and the last one out. In the car, the rider should always hold the lash in his hands.
Whips replace the driving feet. A moving horse should react easily to whips and not be frightened by its use. The horse should get used to the use of the lash when driving on the floor. When the rider gets out of the car, the lash bushing should grip the lash.
Prior to taking the moving horse out of the home surroundings, it should remain quiet on order and for a long period of both on the level and on a gentle gradient. And the horse should return willingly, but only on order. If a horse is flying backwards in the harness, it is very hazardous.
If a horse is agitated or in difficulty, it is best to keep the horse in motion. Familiarise the horse with everything that can be encountered in the streets or on the streets, such as traffic signals, painting roads, canals, manholes, letterboxes, trash bins, gangwayways, pedestrian routes, roads, bridges, doors, vehicles and lorries, horse flies, compressed gas brake on large lorries, bikes, joggers, skateboards, horsemen, other coaches, parasols, hot flaps, canopies, and sleighs.
When planning to do horse shows, fun rides, courtesy rides or a parade, the horse should be used: alarms, blinking beacons, march chapels, loudspeakers, buses, horse-drawn carriages and fireworks. Ensure that there are several "escape routes" large enough to get a horse and cart through if you get into difficulty once the horse is on the hook.
Don't let anyone get up and stroke your horse as soon as it hangs on the coach. A horse cannot always see humans because the pointers on the bridles and can be frightened with sudden touches to his sled. For security purposes, keep persons away from the bicycles and the rear of the car.
You should ensure that you can handle your horse in the company of foreign animals and humans on fun rides and specific show rides. The horse should be satisfied to stay 10 to 20 meters behind the coach in front of you and should be able to endure countless stop overs and take-offs. Well-educated driving horse is not rushed or aggressively if it passes another coach or is overtaken.
While riding on the street, the horse's legs should be mist with boron on the boots to increase grip on the slippery surfaces of the track. At the rear of the car there should be a "slow-moving vehicle" delta. Keep the car in line, not half in line and half on your shoulders.
If you drive half into and half out of the traffic lanes, the vehicle often does not get slower and is careful when overtaking. Doing so may cause the vehicle to tip over if it touches only the wheel well. When you have the feeling that a vehicle or lorry is coming too quickly for the security of you and the horse, move it to decelerate.
Ensure that you have the permit of the landowners of the plot you are going to pass and are acquainted with the paths you are using before you drive across them. When approaching the drivers while driving, decelerate and stop until the driver tells you to rest. A lot of saddle horse are not used to horse -drawn coaches. They haunt easy at sights and music.
If you can recall the above security measures and your horse can overcome the usual barriers it may face on the street and in the open, then you are sure to have a fun and pleasant experience with your horse and cart.
