What to prepare when participating in horseback riding

Horse riding is a difficult technical sport, requiring riders to coordinate the movements and coordinate with the horse to be able to ride the horse in the best way and avoid injury.

Before entering the training ground, students must wear a helmet, shoes, instructions on hand, head and neck boots to avoid injuries that may occur during practice. At the same time, on the saddle, everyone warms their hands, head, neck, shoulders, hips to avoid injuries that may occur during training. The booting takes quite a bit of time. Before practicing, students must perform warm-up movements on horseback: turning arms, shoulders, neck, and at the same time, learners also learn to reflect falling positions to minimize injuries.

After the warm-up exercises, students can control the horse by themselves. Before entering the training ground, students must wear a helmet and shoes. The rider must wear a helmet, athletic shoes on a horse, and be instructed by the trainer on how to use the reins and movements to control the horse to turn left, turn right, stop. Students are allowed to ride a few laps around the yard, the horses are firmly seated in the yard and they will be with the students throughout the lesson to keep the reins and balance. Each student himself entered the barn to choose a horse that he liked and then built the saddle.

To be able to control the horse proficiently, students must practice 2 sessions/week for a minimum of 6 months. With difficult techniques such as riding an obstacle course, it takes students more than a year to be eligible to attend because this technique is very difficult. Every week the students had to change their horses to practice their progress because each horse was a different personality.

At the advanced level, students are taught difficult movements such as hurdles, hurdles. Practitioners sitting on horseback focused to perform very rhythmic and beautiful movements, sometimes bending backwards, sometimes bringing their knees up to the horses’ feet, letting the horses gallop quickly, run around. The movements are done decisively according to the coach’s breathing rhythms.
