12 habits of a good rider

When horsemen think about “habits,” they usually think of bad ones, such as looking down during training. But there are many good habits that will help you become a professional. It takes not so much time and effort to form them!

1) Daily put in order the ammunition. And it’s not only in aesthetics, but also in economy, because the ammunition, which is monitored, serves much longer

2) Take care of the horse’s hair – clean, wash, wipe, use cosmetics and the result will not take long – the wool will shine and shine

3) Push the horse for at least 10 minutes before and after training. She is an athlete and it is important for her to stretch and prepare muscles, joints and tendons for further work before loading.

4) Wash the bedcloths. If it is unpleasant for you to take the bed in hands – you do not need to put it on the horse’s back. In the end, it is not hygienic.

5) Be interested in your sport. Read prof. literature, articles, see master classes. Give it a couple of hours a week.

6) Always keep the horse’s feet clean and dry – the best way to deal with biting midges, rotting arrows, etc. Dry your feet with a towel or in a tanning bed after each wash

7) Clean in the stable for your horse. Even if you need to remove the other horse, and its owners consider themselves above it or just lazy. Inspire others to do the same.

8) Diversify your workouts. Exercises outside the saddle are helpful and help strengthen the emotional connection between the rider and the horse.

9) Spry up your hooves before taking the horse out of the stall and after you have finished training. This will be a good prevention of many diseases. It will also help maintain cleanliness in the aisles.

10) Examine levadas for items of danger. It is advisable at least once a week. Look for damaged fences and any traumatic items.

11) Watch your horse’s legs carefully. This will help notice the slightest change. Many tendon injuries do not appear in the initial stage with lameness, only a small swelling and hyperthermia of the tissues. Recognizing soft tissue damage in the early stages will give your horse a better chance of a full recovery.

12) Make an equestrian calendar. Make it a schedule of training, competitions, vaccinations, forging, etc. You will have time to do everything on time and will not need to keep a lot of things in memory
