Wardrobe of the rider
The Rider's Closet was established in 2006 by Georgina and aims to make sure that riding apparel is available for therapy riding programmes, as well as intercultural riding programmes, private riding programmes and individuals in need. During 2010, Georgina moved the operation of The Rider's Closet from her home to Pegasus Therapeutic Riding, a local non-profit organization, which allows the programme to run continuously.
The Pegasus horse training programme offers horseback riding and therapy for those with specific needs, vulnerable persons and soon veterinary warriors. One Pegasus employee leads The Rider's Closet and supervises the volonteers who fill it part-time. Last July, The Rider's Closet held a multi-day extravagance at the Michele Arnhold Education Center's new Hospitals Room as part of the first Rider Appreciation Day.
Closet will accept single and company gifts for all new and carefully used equipment, and will then donate the item to any needy driver in the USA who request it.
Equestrianism, the arts of riding, the contact and education of equines. Equestrian skill demands that a horseman controls the horseman's movement, pace and velocity with maximal efficiency and minimal effort. Equestrianism developed inevitably as the arts of riding with maximal insight and a minimal amount of intervention in the equine being. Up to the twentieth centuries riding was a single occupation of civilians, the cowboy and others whose work demanded riding on horseback, and the rich who went for sports.
Even though hunt and pollo are still more the sport of the rich and the horses' roles in combat are over, today particular emphasis is placed on top-class riding demonstrations, where the most favourite thing is without a doubt showjumping. Equestrian art is still a treasured good and symbolic of society and respect, but the opening of many new riding associations and riding schools has made riding and equestrian art available to a much greater part of the people.
As of the 2. millenium BC, and probably even sooner, the horses were used as mounts by wild native tribes of Middle Asia. The Scythians were experienced riders and used horses. They are also likely to have recognized the importance of a fixed fit and were the first to develop a shape of the temple.
Chertomlyk, Ukraine, is depicted on a 4 cent ury-old Chertomlyk jar with a saddle mounted on the side of the saddle and a strap wrapped around the lower end. However, this construction can only have been used for assembly, as there is a risk that the base cannot be released quickly when descending.
Strabo, a Grecian scholar, said that the indocsibility of the savage horse of the Scythians made the gelding necessary, a hitherto unexplored tradition in antiquity. Sarmatians, great riders who replaced the Scythians, ridden without saddles and controlled their horse with their knees and riders' weights. The Hittites, Assyrians and Babylonians were among the first nations to engage in horse fighting and hunting; at the same times (around 1500 B.C.), the Hyksos or shepherds' Kings imported mounts to Egypt and ridden them in all their battles.
It was in the eighteenth and seventeenth century that the Scythians introduced mounts to Greece, where the horsemanship quickly evolved, initially for fun only. The Parthenon in Athens shows Greeks riding barefoot. Philipp II of Macedonia had a troop of troops in his armies, and his son Alexander's armies had separated, organised equestrian corps.
Into the 4. cent. bce another Greeks scholar, Xenophon, penned his essay Peri hippik?s (On Horsemanship), which gave magnificent advices to the equestrian art. His plea was for the use of as milder as possible bit sizes and his rejection of the use of violence in horse riding and practice. Normally the cavalry were barbaric bowmen who drove without a stirrup and apparently without a rein, and left their bare hand to use bows and arrows.
Usually, almost every riding gear used today comes from the riders of the Eurasian steppe and was taken over by the peoples of the countries that overrun them in the eastern, southern and later western regions. Various kinds of horse shoe were used by migrating Eurasian strains around the 2 th centuries B.C., but the brand new shoe, as used today, first arrived in Europe around the 5 th centuries B.C., imported by Easterners.
Circular or three-cornered irons were used by the Avars in the sixth centuries AD, and metallic irons were used by the BC Cavallerie. From the beginning, the idea of checking a horseman by pressing on his lips with a piece (a piece of metallic equipment placed in the horse's mouth) and bridles (straps fastened to the piece kept by the rider) was practised, and pieces of bones and horns were found before 1000 BC.
The armour became bigger and bigger and harder and forced the breed of more and more solid horse until the combined forces made the ability to maneuver almost unfeasible. At the beginning of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Federico Grisone and Giovanni Battista Pignatelli attempted to link the classic Greeks principle with the demands of mediaeval equestrian competition at a Neapolitan riding school.
According to Xenophon - with the exception of a fourteenth century paper by Ibn Hudhayl, an Arab from Granada, Spain, and a fifteenth-century book on Edward's fight, König von Portugal - apparently little remarkable riding literary was written until Grisone released his Gli ordini di cavalcare in 1550. Military weapons were developed without the use of armor, which allowed some further modification of method and education among Pignatelli's and Grisone's supporters, such as William Cavendish, duke of Newcastle.
François Robichon de la Guérinière in 1733 released the École de Cavalalerie ( "School of Cavalry"), in which he explains how a cavalry can be educated without being compelled to submit to the basic principle of contemporary schooling. Dressing is the methodological education of a horse for various uses, with the exception of race and cross-country riding.
It was the aim of the Spanische Hofreitschule in Vienna and the Französische Kavalleriezentrum in Saumur to perfect the combination of equestrian and equestrian skills. It was their techniques and their academical positions, a form of riding posture or riding styles, in which the horseman sat upright and deeply in the center of the seat, that exercised a significant impact on Europe and America in the eighteenth and nineteenth century and are still used in contemporary equestrian sports today.
However, Comte Antoine d'Aure, Saumur's chief rider, encouraged a more daring, laid-back and naturally minded, albeit less "real", off-road driving technique, unlike his 19th-century colleague François Baucher, a rider of great skill with great design concepts from the High Ecole. Classic manege and riding lessons had to give way to simpler and more efficient riding in hunting and warfare.
Throughout this time the hunters leapt forward with their legs, the upper body back on the hips of the horses and the horses heads stood high. Often the horses would jump in fright. In the early twentieth millennium, Captain Federico Caprilli, an ancient coach of Italy, studied the psychological and mechanical aspects of the horse's movement.
It revolutionised the system entirely by introducing an innovative front seating system, a riding posture and driving technique in which the rider's body mass in the back of the seat is centered forward over the horse's ankles. Apart from show and show the front seats are the most commonly used seats today, especially in show jump.
Equestrian art is based on the fundamental idea of achieving human results through a mixture of equilibrium, sitting, hands as well as thighs. Every time the stallion moves and changes gears, the horse's center of mass changes. Since a riding equestrian also bears a relatively instable load of about one fifth of its own body mass, it is the rider's responsibility to adapt as far as possible to the horse's motions.
Prior to assembly, the nut is inspected to ensure it is suitable for both the horseman and horseman. Advanced horsemen are positioned in the back of the horses so that they can remain on the horses and take full command of them. Choice of location will depend on the job at stake.
Safe seating is indispensable, giving the driver total autonomy and liberty to make effective use of the tools at his disposition. A good rider does not outvote the animal, but he convinces it strongly and painlessly to obey his will. Horses' innate movements are gait, trot, galop or low speed galop and galop, although most horses do not distinguish between galopp and galopp in suit.
Riding horses are practised in each gear and in alternation from one to the other. While walking and galloping, the horse's mind will move down and forward, then up and back (only when trotting is it still); the rider will move with his hand. This can be a free or regular stroll, during which a relaxing, broad movement allows the liberty of the horse's mind and throat, but maintains oral communication; or it can be a collective stroll, a brief stroll full of drive or strength; or it can be a long, serene stroll.
The rider can either be seated in the seat and be pushed when the rider jumps from one pair of diagonals to the other, or they can get up to the trot by easily getting out of the seat and letting more of their weights rest on the straps when one or the other of the pair of diagonals exits the floor.
The postings reduce the effects of trotting on horses and riders. However, if the horseman is moving more quickly, his pace changes to a galop or normal galop in which the horseman does not ascend or push. Riders' bodies are more forward directed than at their trots, the weights carried by the stapes.
Faster cantering becomes cantering, in which the rider's body mass is strongly propelled forward when the animal achieves a speed of up to 48kph. Equine movement is the same as at galop. A number of separate and intermediary courses exist, some of which are carried out only by animals which have been raised to carry them out.
Dependent on the skills and leanings of the horseman and coach, the workout may involve items such as gathering (controlled, accurate, increased movement) and stretching (gentle, fast, achieving motion - the opposite of gathering) in all steps; turning on the front hand (the part of the horseman in front of the rider) and the hind hand; altering the leading foot at the gallop; varying velocity; restraining or reversing; side moves; and lastly, the finer points of exercise, jump and cross-country riding.
Communicating with the horses is made possible by the use of teeth and tools. Riders signal their intention to the horses by combining recognised movement of arms and feet with several items of gear. Repeating the process, the equine person recalls this speech, understanding what is necessary and obeying.
They consist of a sole rectilinear or articulated nozzle with a ring at each end for the bridles. Snaffles are used in motor sports and often off-road. Two bridles are used for further training. There is a structured saddle and a square set of teeth assembled in the lips, first the saddle, then the set of teeth, which both function separately and are fixed to independent bridles.
Pelham is a horsebit with a flat nose piece; cheek pieces with lower end ring for curbs ideation; and a curbstone necklace for applying force to the lower outside of the orifice. Bridles are a harness kit that makes the teeth safe in the animal's jaws and thus guarantees man's ability to keep an eye on the bridles (see illustration).
Horses' main characteristics of mindset are keen observance, inborn shyness and a good mind. Up to a certain point, the equine can also comprehend. The training is geared to these skills and the rider's tools are used accordingly. Typical tools are the vocal, the hand through the rein and the teeth, the leg and heel and the motion of the rider's heel.
Whips, spurs and tools such as Martingale, nose straps and bridles are synthetic tools, as they are called in theoretical terms, because the equine does not distinguish between naturally and artificially. It'?s easy to scare them. Surely a good rider will come near to them softly, speak with them and pat them to give them trust.
Riders' stillness can even cause unrest in some equestrian situations, but you should not shout at them. In early school, the rider's vocal line and pitch are useful tools for learning how to gait, trot, gallop and hold a horse. In order to keep the horseman awake at all moments, the rider's arms keep a slight, continuous touch with the jaws, even when holding.
Handles are used together with the leg to keep in touch, push the horses forward, turn, bridle the back, and generally check the firsthand. It is said that the horses is gathered and easy in the palm of the hand when the effect of the teeth can cause it to bend or relaxed its mandible with curved heads on the pole or top.
If they are pushed against the sides at the same time, the leg immediately after the hand has released the rein triggers the forward motion of the horses. These are of utmost importance for the generation and maintenance of the impulse, for the control of the backhand and for the transverse motion. The rider achieves the unit of equilibrium through the help of gravity, i.e. by shifting the whole part of the rider's physique in accordance with the horse's forward, backward or sideways motion.
For example, when galloping, the horseman will lean to the right; or when he is about to climb down a precipitous hill, the horseman will remain upright while the front feet of the horseman feel the rim, but as soon as the downhill begins, the horseman will lean forward so that the hind leg remains free to act as a stop to avoid the hind leg of the horseman scratching the hind leg on uneven terrain.
In the meantime, the horses keep their hand on course to keep their body balanced. It is mainly used to strengthen the legrest for controlling, attracting alertness and demanding obeisance, but it can also be used as a penalty for intentional aversion. Horses can resist by grinding their teeths and swinging their tails.
Strikes should always take place in the quarter, behind the seat belt, and must take place immediately, since a horses can assign only approximately concurrent occurrences. Though normally the foot or ankle or both should be adequate, the spores, which should always be dull, help the feet to control the precise movement of high school.
At one end, the walking and stationary Martiningale are fastened to the seat belt and at the other end to the denture leashes or bridles. Electric harness, a small belt under the horses jaw through which the rein runs, is used for the race and prevents the horses from pulling the rein over their heads.
Avoid throwing your opponent's back, especially near an object, as the stallion can jump blind, as the stallion cannot see under a line from the eyes to the nasal orifice. With a well trained equine rider, a Martiningale should not be necessary. Either the halter, a harness belt that surrounds the horse's nostrils, can be a cape snaffle with a long piece of brass headed ring for fastening a long workout halter, or a halter with a headband that is only required when using a vertical Martiningale.
Many other nose straps are designed for riders who needlessly draw or carry the rein. Estimated riding purpose: The nut, the length of the handle and the rider's position or type of riding should correspond to the riding use. First use of the temple is to allow the horseman to get on the mount, usually from the near (left) side.
Raising the feet in the temple, the horseman should prevent the horseman from burrowing the side of the mount when it emerges and sliding progressively into place without ending up with a bulge on the horse's kidney. In the case of an arousable equine, the horseman can await kneeling and stapes until the equine body forwards.
A front seating position, which is preferred for show jumpers, hunters and cross-country riders, is generally regarded as corresponding to the horses own effect. Horseman sitting in the centre of the backgauge, his upper body slightly forward, even when standing. Nut is formed with the front panels, sometimes with the knees for extra jump assistance.
Line along lower arm from arm to arms and along rein to teeth is kept upright. And when the horseman is moving forward, so do the rider's own palms to do justice to the horse's comforts. During the show and training, the horseman drops deeply into the back of the saddle, in a smooth, relaxing but upright posture above.
Semitrailer doors are virtually flat to show as much width as possible from the front of the horses. Stanchion leathers are so long that the rider's leg can flex at an approximate 140 degree tilt and the calf makes slight downward pressure on the horse's side, the toe is well down and the toe or balls of feet rest on the running surface of the stanchion.
Riders keep constant, easy touch with the horse's jaws; and the purpose is to give an idea of gracious, collective activity. Previously this semitrailer was used for shooting and playing hunts with its rectilinear front panels, but the front seats have become increasingly used for these types of work.
This standard semitrailer is suitable for livestock breeders, but is also used for rodeo and by many leisure and trailer horsemen. Weighing up to 18 kg, the nut is suitable for rounds of beef animals and features a high knob flange for binding a laser.
Riders use long stapes and a heavy piece, which they rarely use, because they ride with a looser reins and mainly guide their horses by moving the weights of their bodies in the saddles. Pampa Argentina's Paucho rughriders have taken a similar fit with a high knob and cape nut.
Australia's stockists have used a yoke with a small tab that is fitted with knuckle and femur rollers or requisites that provide an ultra-safe fit. Although not so trendy today, the classic and stylish side-saddle used to be favored by many female riders and was regarded as the right one. Opposite, the nut has an erect knob on which the rider's right foot sits.
Even though the horseman is seated with both feet on one side of the seat, it is possible to move forward in accordance with the horse's movements in cross-country riding. Naked means riding without a seat or rug, the horseman is seated in the trough of the horse's back and remains there mainly in equilibrium.
It' an awkward fit, but less when walking and galloping slowly. Sometimes when a horse suffers from galleries of saddles, it is rode with its bare back to move. Initially designed for armies, it started at the beginning of the sixteenth cenury. Internationally, the regulations for horse riding are rooted in the tradition and practices of the best riding academies in the equestrian industry.
It is the aim of training to develop the horse's body and performance harmoniously. This makes the stallion quiet, smooth and sharp and thus achieves a complete comprehension with his competitor. Those characteristics are manifested by the liberty and smoothness of the steps; the balance, easiness and smoothness of the motions; the relief of the front hand and the locking of the hind hand; the horses remains perfectly level with every motion along a line and bends accordingly when it moves on bent outlines.
Campaign is the concept for basic but thorough workout, which includes work on the lunging reins. These long reins, which are also used for the education of young or challenging youngsters, are fastened to a nose piece with a nose strap, the so-called cape bridle. At the end of the reins the stallion is trained in a circle.
It' a tool for riding from the seat, whatever is best. Fundamental for Campaign is the collection: to teach the horses to curve their necks, to move their weights backwards to their hind legs and to move in a conspicuous and stimulating way. Another element of the campaign is driving in a rectilinear line, curves and laterals.
It is the most complex and specialised type of training and reaches its final stage at the Viennese Schule with its traditionally crafted Lippizaner whites. A few typical skin-ecole aerials or motions are the Pirouetten, which switch on the hips when walking and galloping; the Piiaffe, in which the horseman travels without going forwards, backwards or laterally, with the pulse directed upwards; the Pass, the high Trob, in which the pulse goes more upwards than forwards;
in which the equine figure balances on its hind legs, its front legs are retracted, the courtvet, which is a leap forward in the levad seating positions, and the groupade, the balotade and the cape, a multitude of sensational arias in which the equine figure leaps and returns to the same place. Each of these motions is perhaps even approximate, in some cases, to those that the animal carries out in a natural way.
When riding, the most vulnerable parts of the horses are the jaws and the lumbar region, especially when it comes to the jump. Horses' palms steer the front hand, while hindquarters' feet are at rest. With increasing velocity the chair is lifted slightly from the nut, with the back upright, the torso and arms forward, the lower leg and the knuckles carrying the mass of the torso and grasping the nut so that the leg remains free from the knee downwards for propulsion.
Contacts with the mouths are kept even and continuous, the horseman adapts to every move, while the horse's scalp moves forward after take-off and always moves in line with the horse's shoulders when pulling in when touching down. To give the backhand and the ankle joints full liberty, the horseman leans back into the seat only two steps after he has landed.
It is a naturally jumping animal, but when it is riding, it needs to be trained. The workout starts in a closed plane area by moving the horses, preferrably in a bridle, over a row of sticks or sticks lying on the floor. Once the stallion gets used to it, its pace is raised.
In the further course of the ride the obstructions are lifted up, vary and distributed in an irregular way. Aim is to instruct the horse: The animal should be safe about every leap before getting up and should be familiar with a wide range of obstructions. Equestrian and equestrian athletes must be thoroughly educated. Neither the horseman nor the horseman, who by no means gives the horseman the feeling that something unusual is imminent, are very exhausting.
Where possible, the stallion is heated by at least half an hours of walk and trot before he enters the ring. Horses are led towards the precise center of each barrier, the horseman looks ahead and for some reasons does not look around after the start as this could affect the horse's balance.
Even though some seasoned horsemen can set the horse's step for a proper start, this should not be necessary with a well-trained equine. He is always made to adapt to every act of the horseman, the only help necessary is that of bearing and increase or decrease the pace according to the obstacles.
