BENEFITS OF REGULAR HORSE TRAINING
Do you make the same horse riding mistakes, feel like you don’t understand your horse, feel stuck and, as a result, are losing your motivation? Perhaps you don’t train regularly enough. From keeping a good physical condition to establishing a positive human-horse bond, find out how regular horse riding training can improve your horsemanship.
Establish a consistent riding regime
To constantly improve upon your riding skills it is essential to turn a hobby into a habit. This can only be possible with a consistent training regime and a commitment to a training plan. Regular training helps you fully immerse into a learning process and gives you an impulse to further improvements towards achieving your goal. A consistent routine will take some time to develop and, in the early stages, may require a trainer’s supervision.
Keeps you and your horse in a good physical condition
A regular workout is essential for the health of a horse. From regular training a horse gets strong muscling, developed and mobilized reflexes and habits. Repetition keeps your horse mentally alert resulting in quicker reaction and better coordination during the performance of dressage figures. The same way regular training works for a rider. It enables you to be physically and mentally ready to execute a riding figure. Besides, it brings you the ability to understand your horse’s reactions and to give her right commands. On the other hand, long period of inactivity can result in all conditioning to be essentially lost. It may take a significant amount of time to get your horse and yourself back to shape.
Early detect and fix common mistakes
A regular riding activity quickly reveals strengths and weaknesses of the rider. A support of a professional trainer is crucial to help you escape the repeating pattern of mistakes before you start losing your motivation. At the same time, getting trained regularly makes it much easier to quickly get back on the right track and move forward to the next level.
Realize effectiveness of your trainer
Based on a sequence of training sessions, you can make initial conclusions about your achievements and the trainer’s input into your progress. You can use this information to decide whether your trainer is effective enough or you should switch to another one for a better result. On the contrary, occasional training can never give you sufficient grounds to understand how trainer’s instructions influence your progress.
Establish a positive human-horse bond
Regular training leads to a better understanding of your horse’s behavior and emotions, which is critical in building a trust-based human-horse relationship. Understanding the language of your horse helps you achieve mutual harmony and act as one unit when performing a riding figure. Eventually, this partnership will payoff in all aspects of interaction with your horse.
The importance of regular horse training should not be undervalued. It polishes your riding technics, organizes your learning process, strengthens human-horse connection and pushes your progress forward. It simply brings your horsemanship to perfection.
