A ONE DAY EQUINE BIOMECHANICS COURSE WITH RUSSELL GUIRE This one day course will inspire, educate and make you look outside the box on how best to manage horses for both health and performance. This course is a great way to learn about biomechanics and how it can be applied to every horse and every ride of all levels. Open to riders, trainers, horse owners, therapists, saddlers. LEARN ABOUT...
STUD PROJECT - Recently we carried out a project with Lucinda Green looking at the effect of using one stud versus two studs in the hind limb…..The results were really interesting and not what you expect.
DISSECTION IMAGES - We have a fabulous anatomy lecture which will go inside the horse – this lecture is like no other anatomy lecture. We carried out a private dissection on a horse and have captured so truly unique and beautiful images which highlight the supreme athletic ability of the horse.
TACK RESEARCH - Following on from our girth research project on the run up to London 2012 we have been testing new products which will be equal to the girth. Find out how tack affects your horses health and performance
TRAINING METHODS - have been widely discussed - this lecture will cover correct training methods, correct neck positions and will look at “outside the box things” such as surfaces, travel, mounting and rider positioning and the effect this can have on the horse.
CONFORMATION - is vital in helping to maintain soundness, there has been some fantastic work carried out looking at left and right handed horses. How does that impact on soundness and performance?
All of the above is supported by theory lectures followed by a DETAILED PRACTICAL SESSION
RIDER AND GAIT ANALYSIS CLINICS - FOR YOU AND YOUR HORSE! What is Gait Analysis?
To analyze your horses movement, white reflective markers are placed on your horse at biomex key points. Horses are presented in hand at walk & trot along a designated track. Slow motion video is taken & preliminary observations are made by eye & by viewing the video on screen. Additional information is gathered from your input with regards to your horses discipline and job function as well as history. Do you have any concerns with regards to performance? Do we see asymmetry in your training? These are the types of question people ask. You can take the slow motion video with you from the session on your USB. After returning to the UK Russell analyses the slow motion video via specialized biomechanics software (Quintic) & interprets the data gathered into a report which is emailed to you with his observations from data gathered. *Farrier Analysis - is another feature of gait analysis where the video footage is taken of the feet & footfall of your horse. *You may also choose a ridden gait analysis of your horse. What is Rider Analysis?
In the rider analysis, riders wear Visualise training jackets & gloves and ride as they normally would while slow motion capture video is taken. The key point of the exercise is to establish your straightness and posture and how it affects your horse, your balance and your riding. Are you sitting straight, dropping a should, a hand, a hip? Russell discusses (while watching your video with you) what he observes in order to make you aware of your alignment, then guides you through your postural adjustments to help you create your optimum position for greater harmony with your horse. You are able to take home on your USB all the video footage for reference in the future.
