Popular Horse Training Terms

Horse training is the practice of teaching horses to perform commands and follow instructions. This breaks them in so people can ride them and they are ready for equestrian activities and games. Training prepares these animals to become accustomed to saddles, which are used for riding and giving lessons. Riding horses is a very popular sport and equestrian jumping and other events are part of the Olympics games. When horses aren't training, they are kept in stables. The stables are divided into individual stalls where the horses are fed and they can rest.

  • Dressage - Dressage is the art of training a horse to make the animal completely responsive and obedient to the rider's commends. Horses that give lessons and race have gone through the dressage process.
  • On The Bit - When horses are on the bit, they are carrying their head in a vertical position, which means they are following the rider's contact on the reins calmly and obediently.
  • Above The Bit - Above the bit refers to when the horse ignores the rider's commends and raises their head above the level of the rider's hands. This reduces their control over the horse.
  • Wrangling - Wrangling is the rounding up and saddling of horses.
  • Halter Broke - Halter Broke is a term used for when a young horse learns to use the basics of wearing a halter.
  • Breaking-in - Breaking-in is the early education of a horse and teaches them the basic skills of riding.
  • Whoa - Whoa is a verbal command that signals the horse to stop moving. This command is combined with a rider pulling on their reins.

    Horse training is commonly done by professionals all over the world. This typically requires specific tack or equipment including horseshoes, saddles, boarding facilities, and equine courses to assist horses with learning how to jump properly. It is important to have a horse trained before you attempt horsemanship or riding it. Equestrian training often calls for bridles, halters, and reins, which are long narrow straps attached to a horse’s bit. This allows you to control and guide the animal when you ride. Often horse training requires breaking the animal in and teaching it. Trainers will expose these animals to tracks which include obstacles that require jumping, as well as wooded trails in order to get the horse sufficient exercise. The behavior of the animal will change, while under the proper care. Typically training facilities have boarding houses, tack rooms, barn stables for sleeping, fences to keep the animals in, and equipment to groom the foals and colts with. In the right arena, the right instructor can teach the stallion or mare proper footing, how to handle a saddle, and how to trot properly. Nails are often used to secure horseshoes into the hooves. If you are seeking further information regarding horse trainers, mare exercises, and horsemanship, you can always resort to books that teach this type of training and care. You can also check into professionals in your area that deal with horsemanship and proper instruction. Contact a few of these experts in order to acquire answers to any specific questions you may have.
