What is in katstsung mine?

The rider takes the horse to “drive” it on the cord. On her head is a snappy headband. Carabiner cords cling to the inner ring of the snaffle (often making a loop around the opposite), and the horse begins to move in a circle. The picture is familiar and familiar to each rider. Therefore, in 99 cases out of 100, no one will even think that the bridle is not the best device for working on the cord, and mankind has invented a much more convenient ammunition for this purpose – kaptsung.

For some horsemen, work on the cord is the provision of a horse with minimal exercise in the absence of training under the saddle, or an obligatory stage of work with a young animal. However, ideally, classes on the cord and in the hands is a full-fledged diverse work with horses of any age, which should go along with riding loads. Formation of the back line, the croup muscles, help in finding balance and constant rhythm in various paces – these are just some of the goals that it helps to achieve. And the key to a competent and fruitful work on the cord and in the hands is the right equipment. Universal and the best addition to the cord can be called a kaptsung. It is also indispensable when working in hands and on the reins (in two cords).

Halter big brother
Kaptsung (kaptsun, kaptsaum) – a special manezhny halter, irreplaceable for work on a cord. Its nose is often padded with soft matter, for example, felt, a metal plate is inserted into it consisting of several joints, with three rings for fastening the cord. Through this plate, which exerts pressure on the horse’s nasal bone, it is transmitted to the effects of the person who controls the cord. Unlike the usual halter, kaptsung fits snugly to the head, so it does not warp and does not hurt the eyes if the horse pulls. A good deterrent is kaptsung for hot horses that have the habit of “running off” from the cord.

Many horsemen have been working with horses on the cord for years, attaching it to the slinger headband. However, this is not the best option. Exposure to iron sideways and downward will not teach a horse anything good, exerting unnecessary pressure in this case on the mouth, which dulls its sensitivity. Kapzung will become an indispensable tool in learning to bend. Attach the cord, as a rule, to the middle ring, which allows not to perepegivat it when changing the direction of movement of the horse. Side rings are used to work with horses, strongly pulling to the side, to avoid too much impact on the nasal bone, or when working on the cord with the ruling.

Kapzung is the main product offered for cord work in domestic equestrian stores. However, he has foreign relatives who are found and used much less frequently, but there are places to be – this is caveson, seretta and mediaana. In the minds of many Russian horsemen, a real mess is created at the expense of this trinity: some even put an equal sign between them, being sure that the difference is that the same katstsung is simply called differently in different countries. However, this is not the case. They differ in the part that affects the horse’s nasal bones. Cavesson is a leather halter with rings on the nose strap (without metal plates). Now kavessony can sometimes be found at the equestrians involved in the creation and sale of handmade ammunition for the horse. In this case, they are usually made of synthetic tape. A good leather caveson, produced in Germany, will cost about 3 thousand rubles. Curtainsons are less common than kapzungs, and serettes and mediacans are much less common. Do not confuse caveson with a pilar halter – a rope halter with a rawhide capsule that lies loosely on snoring and is used in a classical school in teaching various elements.

Spanish seretta differs from kaptsung by the fact that not a metal plate is sewn into it, but a chain resembling a bicycle one. At some of the show-rings in Portugal and Spain, graytta is a mandatory horse ammunition. Mediacan is the most stringent of all the above means of working with a horse, which is rarely used and rarely sold. Cast metal plate in it has no joints, and is whole. The mediacan was used and applied in the Spanish riding school, but since time immemorial it has undergone some changes: it used to be equipped with metal teeth that lay directly on the horse’s snoring and were not even covered with leather.

Pricing policy When choosing a kaptsung, pay attention to its straps: additional belts in the ganache area guarantee that it will not slip. Unlike halters, kappzungs have a rather poor range: you will not find such a huge amount of flowers and…
