Tack Traditions

Jim Wofford wrote an insightful piece a while ago in Practical Horseman on the “mindless application of equipment, regardless of whether it is suitable for this horse at this stage of training.”



What do you think?



He said, “Nosebands are one of my many irritants when coaching.  Almost every horse I see [dressage, eventing] is wearing a flash noseband.  And they are inherently ill-fitting.  These nosebands can interfere with the horse’s normal swallowing mechanism, producing the very resistance they are intended to cure.  Yet when I ask riders whether they have tried other nosebands or even no noseband, they look at me as if I had just stepped down off the ramp of the mother ship.”



I agree with Jim, and routinely ask the riders I teach…

Whales, horses, clicker training

On a Nova Scotia horse judging trip, how cool to detour for some whale watching with my son and his friend!

Confusing horse training jargon…

Mystical, humorous or deliberately elusive – the terms we use in the horse business can leave a rider scratching her head.  I was a coach’s worst nightmare - “What do you mean by that?” I’d ask . I rarely got a meaningful answer.

When coaching ,I’ll often press a rider to explain a term they’ve used. If they struggle to put it into words, we’ll unpack the idea and isolate the aids step-by-step.  

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” Einstein.

Training a non- English speaking horse partner is complicated enough without including vague terms which a prompt riders to give vague signals and horses to be stressed out.  I get a kick out of those light bulb moments – my student grasps the “phonics” of a certain skill and gets results on her…

A unique “Horse Show Checklist”!

Heading off to a show this weekend?.

(condensed from hunter judge, Laura Kelland ‘s May17 blog)

 

DON’T go to the show  if:

  •  you aren’t getting excellent rides at home, mentally and physically, both you and your horse.
  •  you haven’t taken your horse off-property in many months (go somewhere lower-key first).
  •  you haven’t done your “homework”: both you     and your horse are fit, and riding AT LEAST one level (regardless of discipline of…
