Overview:Getting Horses Fit - For a horse or pony to perform well - whether that be in eventing, endurance, show jumping, reining or any other of the myriad disciplines within the modern equestrian world - he has to be fit for the job. Fitness is vital whether you aim to compete at international level or local weekend competitions, because a fit horse will stand a better chance of staying sound, both physically and mentally, and will have a longer and more active life. The same criteria apply if you choose not to compete but to ride purely for pleasure. The happy hacker or trail mount is still a working animal and needs to be prepared and maintained accordingly. After all, a Formula One racing car and a weekend run-around both need correct fuel and to be kept in good working order. In "Getting Horses Fit", Carolyn Henderson, with the assistance of competitors, equine science experts and experienced owners, explains what fitness means and how to achieve it, enabling owners to work out an individual fitness programme suitable for their own horse, whatever their level of activity. The topics include: assessing your horse; health and condition; disciplines and their demands; feeding for fitness; environment management; building strength and suppleness; interval training; tack and equipment; travelling and competing; lungeing and long-reining; poles and gridwork; hands-on techniques; and diet and fitness for riders and the mental approach.
