Habits and protective equipment for equestrian sports
Making sure your habit is to learn what you have to do to be sure on the road and on the horseback, and then do those things the same way every day you work with your horses until they are as automated as the security practices you use when you drive. Educate your mare to show consideration for your area.
That is not something one once teaches and forgets; like keeping the line when putting up a teens, one has to "patrol" this barrier on a regular basis. Though this is similar to the personnal room thing, but refers more to if you have the horse on a wire or an long line and he either does not cooperate or ignores you altogether.
Clinton Anderson, the coach, often says: "A mare can't step on you or run away if she has both eye on you. "So you' re gonna hit the guide wire to keep both your eye on you. Don't go after a stallion (even if he knows and likes you) without registering.
There is a dead corner back there and sometimes, not always, they step first and ask what they will meet later. Position yourself at a 45-degree incline to the front shoulders of your saddle. You are out of reach, you cannot be run over or beaten by a forefoot, and you can get out of the way when your stallion is approaching you.
Staple and unstitch each in the same way. Our routines ensure that every snapshot is bent; every clasp is bent; and there are no ridges, unevenness or creases that wait for you to climb aboard so that you can give your horses a surprising dash. For the first timeyou put the RCA on, it's just getting comfortable.
Take your stallion for a stroll or do some preparatory work (about five minutes) and cuddle him up again. Like my riding buddy Margie once said: "It doesn't take a big dent on your face to wreck the remainder of your world. Wearing a little headgear means that if you take a fall from your horses and hit your face on a cliff, you can most likely go riding again - and spend the remainder of your lives in a non-vegetative state.
Genuine one stop reins, which gives you a genuine stop function, must be trained and practised to be efficient. It' more than just pulling your horse's face to one side. If you have a serious rider problems, it is your auto answer to do it, and your horse's auto answer to do it.
Take complete command of your horses edgy legs by helping them to bow in circles. These are another fallaciously easy routine that can be a life saver if you need to get hold of a horse that' s jumpy or panicky. This way, your mare can take his mind off something that scares him and put it on you.
Instruct your stallion to loosen his butt. Each movement of your equine demands strength from the backhand. Put the heat on directly behind the belt or RCA until your horse's rear foot intersects on this side in front of the opposite rear foot. In addition to the good old crutch, which I have already referred to as the No. 1 for safety on horseback, there are a few other items of equipment that can help keep you safely (and to make you felt safer) in the seat.
The Smart Woman's Guidebook to mid-life horses: Find the Meaning, Magic and Mastery in the Second Half of Life, by Melinda Folse, with an intro by Clinton Anderson. Edited by Trafalgar Square Books, the 322-page pocket book is a guideline that deals with both pragmatic and psychological questions that "riders of a certain age" encounter in order to use the concept of the writer.
