One for the equine biomechanics geeks! 4th Horse Saddle Rider presentation in the series created for equine and equestrian professionals and competition riders dedicated to ethical horse saddle rider performance.
Presented in a refreshingly unique highly informative format, the webinar covers the theory of muscle action, contraction and a comprehensive range of the essential components of learning how to analyse horse and rider movement from photo stills. This presentation relates postural functional anatomy to equitation and how the horse, saddle and rider interacts as a moving combination. Includes film, explanations and discussions generated from audience participation.
- A visual overview of how equine muscles produce movement according to where they are sited.
- Identification of the prime muscle actions occurring in a horse and rider over a single jump stride over four separate phases.
- A visualisation of the influence of loading on muscle recruitment.
- An explanation of movement planes and axes.
- What is really meant when we refer to biomechanics of the horse and rider.
- Joint movement terminology.
- Muscle action and what is involved in a single stride that the horse makes.
- Muscle strength, contraction and the various roles muscles play.
- Gait strategy.
- An overview of the phases of training sports movement.
- An overview of the many elements of muscle conditioning.
- Static and dynamic postural ‘Power Leak’ case studies including correction of BTV (behind the vertical) dynamic posture.
As well as being highly applied, this lecture is highly visual and has a wealth of video content for clarification of the theory.
