Transcript of Horse Riding and caring guide

Hi everyone!
My name is Abbey and so far I have made many Prezis about many things but this one will be about my favourite animal... a horse! This is a quick read of a guide. Now I have made this prezi for beginner horse riders or owners. Horses are beautiful creatures and if they are tame they will let you fit all the tack on them. (saddles, saddle mat etc.). Then they will let you ride them.
The parts of a
Horse
There are many different parts of a horse. First you need to know what the Points of a horse are. They are the bones of the horse that you see from the outside. There is the Dock (the point just above the tail), the Cannon (the horses shin), the Withers (the base of it's neck), the Hock (the horses knee), Muzzle (the horses mouth and nose), crest (the point on the neck just below the head), the Fetlock (the ankle of the horse just above the hoof) and so much more. Did you know that some horses wear socks? Well some do. It is the white or brown part of the coat just above the Fetlock.
How to horse ride
Horse riding is pretty simple once you get the hang of it. I find with most people is that they are scared about falling off a horse. Now to those people ..... GIVE IT A GO! Because you might not fall off! Anyway to horse ride you get on the horse and kick it's side for it to go. Then when your walking pull on the left to go left and the right to turn right. If you have mastered the walk go to a trot. To trot you need to stand up then sit down in the rythm of the trot. the rythm is 1, 2 seconds standing sit for a second then 1,2 standing in the saddle

What Do Horses Eat?
Horses eat lots including: Hay (dried grass), Grass, Oats, Bran (a powder that softens the coat that you mix in with its food), carrots and apples but the apples, only in small amounts. There are some plants that poisonous or can make horses sick and stop growing the grass. They are, Acorns, Laburnum, Ragwort and Foxglove.
