Work on reins: theory and practice

Reins work is an excellent training technique to support saddle work, useful for both the horse and her trainer. I have repeatedly noticed that horses love this type of work, because, on the one hand, it is easier for them (do not need to carry the weight of a rider), and, on the other hand, such work creates a closer connection between man and animal, since they literally work “Side by side”, and a person has to spend no less energy than horses.

Horses with bad manners pose a threat to all those who are close to them, and even to themselves. But how to fix the situation?

Cord work is a great way to improve the horse’s top line. Without the burden of the rider’s weight, the horse can easily find a rhythmic, relaxed and balanced way of moving. The circle naturally encourages a deeper step toward the horse’s center of gravity with the inner hind leg, causing a cyclic action of the muscle ring. But the effectiveness of the cord work, of course, depends on the skills of the cord, who works with the horse. Allowing a horse to rush with a reverse order, littered with a nape, a fallen shoulder or backside is a futile and often also harmful exercise for the horse. Continue reading

Horse problems: swimming

Bathing – a useful and enjoyable procedure – can give you a lot of unpleasant moments if the horse decided to resist for some reason.

Can you bathe a horse on the grass on a loose jacket? Do you need interchanges or even an enclosed space? Does the horse scare the hose?
