Ditte Young Horse had a virus WITH SUBS on the nervous system Is she ready for riding
Hi this is Ditte Young and I'm in NykÃ¸bing Falster today with Pristina and her mother Susan and what Susan has told me is that Pristina she, yes you can tell it very shortly about the virus on her balance nerve and nervous system your self actually Susan. Yes, two years ago Pristina got sick and got a virus in her nerve bone where she couldn't feel her neck and she was limp in her nerves and all down to her back part and the tale was limp slouches tale they called it plus was pressured on her left eye on 40 and something. But the vet wanted to see how she was doing for a month, he actually thought about putting her down but when I came she was luckily doing better so I took her home and she is good, she is getting along but I'm a little uncertain about if she wants a rider on her back, if she wants me. He was on her back and out experiencing things with her. Yes so that is what we are doing now which I think is super interesting.
Well she wants to be used that is the first thing she is saying but what she is showing me isn't with a rider, it is working on the ground and we have also talked about these challenges, something has to happen she is getting frustrated, she is hammering her front leg. She could hammer her front leg into the stable door in frustration like come on god damn it, use me for something, I'm bored mom, she is calling you mom Susan. She thinks it is very funny when you're training her with the cavalettis and you're doing things on the ground and that's when you're experiencing a horse that is turned on. And I ask her if she would be able to have a rider on her back. Well she wants to, she really wants to and one thing is what you want to do another is if you are capable of that and what I'll just do is that I'm just making a health check on her. Horses' only show what make an impression on them right now and not necessarily what has been or what will happen. It is very ambitious so I ask her if she wants to send it into me inside my body so I feel the level of it but also show it on her own body if anything makes an impression on her.
And what she shows me is that she has become very strong on her left front leg even though you say that she may have been hit there with the virus. Then she says that she actually is much better now with her muscles that you have been focusing on getting her up and make her muscles stronger on her left side so she feels very strong and she feels that she is carrying the weight diagonally over the back down on the right hind leg so there she is getting along too. She needs muscles on her left hind leg she says. And she also does need that on her right front leg the way I feel it. She also shows me that she steps her right front leg a bit under her body and that means that she puts herself to the right like I saw before with the other horse too. What else do you sayé I ask how she feels on her back, you have to be alert that she is very delicate on the spinous processes right above the neck.
It is not because that there is anything wrong with the spinous processes she is just very sensitive up there. I ask if there is anything we can do about ité No it is just very important that you make sure that she doesn't overload there, I'm not someone who rides so I don't know how you can overload her on the top part. I'll just touch you Pristina, but up here and down there you have to be careful what you do and there I will also say that you also can't sit and pull her up back if she ducks, then don't pull her up by her mouth, not that I think you do that but she doesn't want that. She says that she is very muscular weak over her back on her right side so there she definitely needs muscles. She has actually got her muscles on the left side she says. If you can split the back up like right and left side right.
She feels some sort of trouble with her balance I can see when there is a rider on her and the rider has to be you and I ask if it could be your daughter and she says no, then you need to find out about the owner relation first. So the starting point is who owns her, then we'll say that it is you and that it is your horse and it's your riding horse and how she reacts on that if you get up and sit on her. The she says you must be extremely observant on your right leg, because your right leg sometimes falls out of the saddle. You don't have control of your right leg where you're tighter on your left leg, I don't know if you know that you do if you try to feel when you're in the saddle. Yeah she is probably right. Damn it. And it is important that you do not sit and get uncertain on the right leg because she is muscular weak herself. Then she says well it is just very important that you carry yourself so you need to do exercise now before you are going up on her because she can't carry you and your weight, you have to carry yourself.
And you can't at any time put your weight forward on her then she shows me again that if she gets overloaded on the shoulders then she feels that it rays up on the spinous processes on her and that bothers her and the she throws her head around and you can see when she does it, when she starts throwing her head that is when you have a problem. Then you're sitting wrong and then you have to get off. And again I don't feel anything about it now I just feel that extreme sensitive feeling of, a bit like if the nerve treads was hanging out or I can't really explain it but like if you had an open tooth pendant or something. Then it only needs a cold blow and then it is really annoying so I definitely feel her move device is sensitive. But I feel that she can be ridden but it is very little and it is never ambitious but I don't feel that you are. No that is not what it is about either. And I don't feel that she has more than 20 min when riding to be honest, so it will never be some 2 hours forest rides.
Horse Riding How To Start
First of all when you start riding a horseyou should be instructed on how to sit correctly. As you can see, Jennifer here has got quitea lovely position, she is sitting up nice and tall but she is not stiff, there's stillsome softness through her back. She's got a nice straight line from her shoulder, toher hip, to her heel and she is going to make sure she has the same amount of weight onboth sides and she's not tipping off from one side onto the other. Then she's going to make sure she has a nicerein contact with the horses mouth and the reins aren't too loose or too tight. She'sgot to have a straight line from her elbow
though to her hand and through to the horsesmouth. By being in the correct position, she is making sure that the horse will be in balanceand that she will be in balance and be able to move with the horses movements. First of all she is going to sit up nice andtall. This makes her lighter on top of the horse and encourages the horse to move off.If you sit too heavily, this will make the horse feel a little bit uneven and unbalancedbut also discourage him from wanting to carry your bodyweight. So first of all, she is going to sit up niceand tall, this will signal to the horse that
something is about to happen. Then she isgoing to gently ask the horse to either go off her leg from a tap, or a nudge, or a squeeze.It depends on how your horse is trained. Chester goes off from a slight nudge so sheis going to ask him to go forward. Then she is going to squeeze with the legs and channelhim in a straight line, ensuring that he is going forwards and straight the whole timewhilst keeping her body posture. Can you see how she stays nice and tall and she allowsher hips to swing with the horse. If you stay stiff and rigid on top of thehorse, the horse will not be able to move underneath you, so she stays relaxed and goeswith the movement of the horse at all times.
