This made it much easier to watch over the horse herds people kept as well as to herd cattle and sheep. As you probably know if you’ve ridden a horse, it is much faster to get around on horseback than on foot! Riding a horse makes it much easier to keep up after bigger groups of livestock. After people started riding horses many were able to increase the size of their livestock herds and their earnings, too! All of this was because of horseback riding! There are two different types of riding there is English and Western. i will talk about both of them. I will also talk about training and taking care your, horse safety,lastly taking care of your horse Barrel racing is a timed rodeo event, where the fastest time is what matters most. Cowgirls compete in the arena against each other and the clock.

Barrel racing is about cooperation between horse and rider. Because of the competition and money involved, finding a good horse is very important to the competitors. A top of the line barrel horse can cost up to $50,000.

For the barrel racing event, the arena is cleared and three barrels are set up at different marked locations. The riders then enter the arena at full speed, quickly rounding each barrel in a cloverleaf pattern and then exiting where they entered. A stopwatch or timer is used registering down to a hundredth of a second. English riding is a style of riding which has its roots in centuries of European riding tradition. This style of riding is used all over the world, and there are a number of branches of the English tradition The distinguishing characteristic of English riding is the English saddle, a flat saddle design which is designed to be as lightweight as possible. The idea behind this saddle design is that it allows a horse as much freedom of movement as possible, and it maximizes contact between horse and rider. what is Dressage riding?
Dressage is a French word that means training. And to be a top dressage rider takes years of training and hours of practice, A horse and rider must move as one, with just a gentle pressure with knees or reins as communication. Dressage is sometimes referred to as ballet on horseback Jumping your horse
Jumping your horse can be a huge rush and challenge, and it is extremely fun once you learn how to jump correctly. The greater the obstacle, the more triumphant you will feel. Wear a boot with a good heel to keep your foot from slipping through the stirrups stay alert Never ride alone don't get close to the other horses around you sliding stop- a sliding stop is a hallmark of the reining horse lead changes-It is when a horse switches which leg is leading. when cantering in figure 8 then when you reach the center, you switch directions then your horse switches leads. A simple lead change means that you go from a canter, to a trot, and then pick up the canter again. roll back on the fence- You’ll ride a circle near the fence, then approach the fence at a 45-degree angle. You’ll let the fence stop your horse, then use your leg and rein to ask him to collect himself on his hindquarters, execute a 180-degree rollback, and continue in the opposite direction. train you horse to wait for your cues- Teaching your horse to always wait for your commands is especially important in reining, where the judge expects you to not just guide your horse, but also to control his every move. The moment your horse makes a decision to do something without your say-so, it negatively affects your score, horsemanship- The art or practice of riding on horseback.

The pasture must be fenced, of course, to prevent your horse from escaping or being injured Horses require a constant supply of fresh, clean water. The stable must be cleaned (‘mucked out’) daily. If your horse is stabled all day, it should be cleaned three times daily.If your horse is stabled most or all of the day, it will require grooming daily to keep its coat healthy. However, don’t over groom a horse that spends most or all of its time in the pasture. The natural oils in its coat help to keep your horse warm and dry. Your horse will require shelter to protect it from wind, rain, and the sun When people first started riding horse they were hard to control. Men did not have all the right equipment to control the horse like telling the horse to stop,go, ect Throughout the history of horseback riding probably the most famous use for horses has been in wars. From the knights in shining armor off to conquer lands to world war II war tactics, horseback riding has been central to war and conquest. Fire horses (horses that pulled the fire truck) were trained to run to the fire at the sound of the fire bell where they were unhitched and tied guarded by the Dalmatian Dog.
