|Have you ever wondered how your hands affect both you and your horse? Your hands have a lot to do with how your horse responds to your aids. Here are some “hand-y” hints that can help you give better cues to your horse.
There are four types of aids that you use to communicate with your horse: your seat Dries Mertens World Cup Jersey , legs, voice and your hands. Each aid should be used clearly so your horse can understand what you are asking him. Your hands play a very important role in your riding. They help to ask your horse to stop, turn Divock Origi World Cup Jersey , or slow down.
Holding the Reins
Your horse’s mouth is very sensitive. Pulling on your horse’s mouth can cause him to start tossing his head, pulling the reins out of your hands or become “hard-mouthed”, all which can make him stop listening to your aids. You should not have a death grip on the reins and have them so short that you are constantly pulling or tugging on his mouth. Hold the reins just enough so you have contact with his mouth Dedryck Boyata World Cup Jersey , but are not pulling.
Each rein should be between your ring finger and your pinky finger, go through your palm and come through your index finger and your thumb. Your hands should be in a fist, but not tight. Your thumbs should be on top facing towards your horse’s ears. Keep your fists up and not like you are playing the piano.
While riding Christian Kabasele World Cup Jersey , think about your entire position. Imagine a straight line that runs from your elbow and along your arm and down your hands all the way to your horse’s bit. Your elbows and shoulders should be relaxed and there should be a slight bend in your elbow.
Also, keep your hands above your horse’s withers and do not rest them on the saddle or the withers.
Your hands should be a couple inches apart and not touching each other. If your hands are together, the reins make a ‘V’ form thus giving you less contact with your horse’s mouth. If your hands are apart you have a direct line of contact from his bit through the reins all the way to your hands.
Asking to Slow Down or Whoa
When asking to slow down or whoa Christian Benteke World Cup Jersey , keep a steady contact with the reins. Try not to pull back so much, sit deep in the saddle and close your legs around is barrel. Squeeze your fingers tighter around the reins. If your horse does not respond to this, then try pulling slightly on the reins.
Your horse will eventually learn to slow down or whoa once you sit deeper in the saddle Axel Witsel World Cup Jersey , close your legs around him and close your fingers. You can also to a “check and release”. You can do with by slightly pulling on the reins and releasing and repeat several times until he understands the cue.
When asking your horse to turn, you not only use your hands, but your leg and head as well. Ask for the turn by slightly moving your hand out away from his neck in the direction you want to go. Also Zakaria Bakkali Jersey , put your outside leg behind the girth and look in the direction you want to go. Do not just steady pull on the reins, use the “check and release” method, but only with the rein that is in the direction that you want to go in.
If you are turning to the left Yannick Carrasco Belgium Jersey , increase the contact with the left rein and give with the right rein allowing your horse to bend into the left rein. If you do not keep contact with the left rein, he might just turn his head in that direction and not your whole body. Using your outside leg also helps to move him over into that direction.
While riding your horse, think about not only using your hands but your other aids to help you cue your horse to turn Toby Alderweireld Belgium Jersey , slow down or stop. Think of it as a partnership between all of your aids. When you ask him to do something with your inside rein, remember to use your outside leg to push him into the bend and off of the fence. Remember all of your aids go “hand in hand”.

RIO DE JANEIRO， Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- A terrifyingly fast Hungarian swimmer wins three gold medals but sees her coach praised as being "the man behind the performance". A Mexican gymnast is criticized for having a man's body. Australian champions are referred to as "girls" by their own country.
Media reports about sexist language or actions at the Olympics have been more widespread than ever， evidence of a broader and empowered fan base fighting for equality.
Some have suggested， however， that this controversy is not helping to move the needle toward progress as it fails to account for what has already been achieved.
The Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games are officially the most equal in history. Of the 10，444 athletes， around 4，700 are women， or 45 percent. This makes the percentages of female athletes seen in 1900 (2.2 percent)， 1984 (23 percent) or even 2000 (38.2 percent) seem increasingly antiquated.
Rio will also see two new sports， rugby sevens and golf， added to the 28-sport gala in which women are competing.
Sadly， these statistics tell only a fraction of the tale. Parity between competing athletes is a bare minimum， the absence of which would lend a crippling blow to the IOC's wobbly reputation.
The Olympics， for all the seeming cronyism surrounding them， are unparalleled to inspire and impress. The way we talk about athletes matters， perhaps now more than ever. The commentary used to describe winners and losers alike matters.
In years past， children watched their idols and played at being Nadia Comaneci， Mia Hamm or Jackie-Joyner Kersee. This year， they will vault off the couch like Simone Biles or cycle to school like Anna van der Breggen.
When Mexican gymnast Alexa Moreno is called "a pig" or "overweight"， kids may remember that over seeing a stunning athlete who finished 31st in the world.
