Obesity in Horses. The Real Cause. The Real Fix. | Equine Chronicle. By: Dr. Juliet Getty Obesity is an epidemic problem with domesticated horses. Although we most easily attribute the problem to overfeeding concentrates combined with too little exercise, the underlying cause is much less apparent.
It has to do with the horse’s brain and his response to stress — a chronic low-grade, inflammatory stress. Stress tells the horse that he is not safe Discomfort, from any source, induces a biochemical response in the brain that triggers the horse to do whatever he can to survive. Research with a variety of species has repeatedly shown[i] that stress tells the body to hold on to fat; the chemical changes that occur are similar to those produced during a famine. Stress can come from many sources – stall confinement, isolation from buddies, sleep deprivation, change in environment, travel to strange locations, excessive training and performing, pain and illness, exposure to toxins, and the most stressful of all – not being allowed to graze on forage at all times.
Positive Reinforcement: Where Does It Fit In Equine Training? | Horse Canada. Written by: Antonia J.Z. Henderson, PhD. Regardless of whether the spin comes from George Morris, Anky von Grunsven, or Monty Roberts, all horse training relies on the same basic principles of learning theory, grounded in over a hundred years of psychological research. Whether we are training a horse to do a canter pirouette, a dog to sit, a child to be a civilized citizen, or a smoker to quit smoking, we employ the primary principles of Classical and Operant conditioning.
Whether we are intentionally teaching our horses something or not, they are always learning. Most trainers believe that they train their horses primarily with positive reinforcement (Warren-Smith & McGreevy, 2008); in fact, negative reinforcement is the mainstay of equine training, and positive reinforcement is rarely used. Undoubtedly, negative reinforcement will always play a central role in equine training. I: Positive Reinforcement II: Classical Conditioning: III: Shaping: Ground manners Overcoming Phobias.

Malcolm Barns- EV Special Services | Equestrian Victoria. Malcolm Barns was born on the 21st of January 1931 to parents Bernadette and Aubrey.
Malcolm was mad about horses but was not allowed to have one because of the cost and due to a death in the family linked to riding. Malcolm went to Scotch College and after school worked various jobs. Malcolm was a very good tennis player and represented Victoria as a junior. He was once umpired by Lew Hoad an Australian former World No. 1 tennis player. He later became asthmatic and could no longer play tennis. Malcolm’s first horse was Rory A’Moore, a thoroughbred which was too much for Malcolm and bolted all the time.
The only dressage competitions in those days were at the Melbourne Show. At Melbourne Show in 1962 Malcolm won the Gentleman Rider judged by Frank Weldon (a British eventer) who arranged for Malcolm to go to Robert Hall’s riding school in England.

If anyone is wondering what this has to do with Eventing… some of us remember when Carl was an event rider…! Of course his advice applies to Dressage across the board. Here are some of Carl’s words of wisdom. You need a brave horse to compete at top level, to cope with the atmosphere and so on. The horses need to have a really good attitude – to like to work. They need a great canter, one that steps under & pushes the forehand up. Walk – so difficult to correct if it’s wrong. The shorter the walk, the more active they tend to be… Easier to train the piaffe.
They look on a naughty horse or one with lots of character as a good thing. There is a difference between being light & behind the bit. Good riders PREPARE!!! Chazot 51. “Proper functioning of the locomotor system depends on precise synchronization of the movement of each part on every other part and in relation to the body as a whole.” (James R. Rooney, Biomechanics of lameness in horses, 1969) The aim of this 2015 International Conference, was about knowledge of the most advanced scientific studies and the practical application of new knowledge.
I was there, demonstrating the practical application of new knowledge.

Then, he shifted his body weight over his outside seat bone and it was very uncomfortable. As we walk or trot, our thoracic vertebrae bend alternatively right with the retraction of our right front leg, and left with the movement back of our left front leg. Other times, the rider provokes inverted rotation. During the demo, Chazot. Clearing Out the Front Quarters | Eclectic Horseman Magazine. With Buck Brannaman photos by Emily Kitching There are two parts to groundwork; safety and refinement. The safety part is where you are working on having your horse to where he is relaxed enough so that when you get on you can have good things going on between you.
The second part is building a level of refinement on the end of a lead rope that you will utilize when you are on your horse’s back. As you work through various exercises on the ground, you will begin to become aware of the connection between how your horse operates on the ground and when you are in the saddle,” said Buck Brannaman at the opening of his Foundation horsemanship class in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. “Groundwork is good for any horse no matter how broke you think they are.
There will be some things that you find you have a hard time doing, or cannot do well. “But this is no different than teaching a classroom of children. “You can use your lead rope or your flag.

What I am looking for when I am riding a horse of any level, a green colt or an experienced bridle horse, is for him to stay centered underneath me.
When I’m riding, I draw an imaginary rectangle around my horse; there is a line in front of his nose, one on each side of him, and one behind his tail. On a green horse the sides of this rectangle might be five feet out from his sides and on both ends. On a bridle horse the lines might be right at the tip of his nose, inches off my stirrups and right behind his hindquarters. One of the things I am trying to accomplish during my ride is to have my horse in the exact center of the rectangle. Being able to operate all four quarters of my horse, picking up a soft feel, leg yielding; all these things give me the ability to make adjustments when my horse leans on any side of the rectangle so that I can bring him back to center again.
Centering the Young Horse On a colt, especially, he will be centered for only moments at a time. Oppressive Riders. Buck Brannaman | Before You Slip Into Your Slicker. This article originally appeared in Eclectic Horseman Issue No. 20 So much of groundwork is not only about preparing your horse, but helping you to be able to see when things don’t look right before you get on. If you can see the trouble and work through it, you can stay safer. If it’s summer and it’s 90 degrees by 9 o’clock in the morning, many of you get by on horses that aren’t very well started. But in the fall, when it’s frosty in the morning and they’ve been shivering in the night, if you think you’re just going to saddle up and trot off into the sunset, it’s those kind of mornings that you might get bucked off. I would like my horse to have no reaction when I toss my slicker up on the saddle.
But first I have to pay my dues so he knows this slicker is not going to hurt him.
