Abstract

The present Applied Research Paper is subordinated to the theme: "Military Riding - Analysis of its missions, structures and resources". The budgetary constraints of the OMDN-E and the inflection of the DCCRs available by the UEOE have led to a limitation of the conditions for the practice of Military Riding in the Portuguese Army, particularly with regard to human, animal, budgetary, financial and material resources. This work finds its greatest importance in the certainty that this resource management can be optimized. In this context, the present study arises from the fundamental question: "Is it possible to maximize the management of resources related to the Military Riding of the Portuguese Army?" The objectives defined for this work are intended to verify the hypotheses formulated from the derived questions raised, in order to answer the fundamental question. The methodology used to perform the work respected the steps outlined by Quivy and Campenhoudt, gathering the information through bibliographical and documentary research, exploratory interviews, direct observations and interviews by interview. We conclude that there is a need for a restructuring of the current regulation, where they are patented as Military Riding Missions, training, support of the horse and the representation of the Army. On the other hand, in the short term, The management of the resources attached to the Military Riding, although already quite saturated, can be optimized. The quality levels of the Support Personnel, essentially of the TH, will be the main point to fill to face the deficient amount of these resources. Finally, the DCCR, the result of the allocation of civilian horses and the opening of the teaching of Equitation to society, are a potential to register and develop in favor of the system.
Abstract This work of applied research concerns the following topic: "Military riding - analysis of its missions, structures and resources". The budgetary constraints of the OMDN-E and the inflection of the DCCR available by the UEOE, have been leading to a limitation of the conditions for the practice of military riding in the Portuguese Army, As well as budgetary and funds. This work is important as it conveys the assurance that this resource management can be optimized. In this context, the present study is based on the fundamental question: "Is it possible to maximize the resources management pertaining to the Military Riding of the Portuguese Army?" The objectives defined for this work intend to verify the hypotheses formulated from the raised questions, in order to answer to the fundamental fundamental question. The methodology used to perform this work complied with the steps outlined by Quivy and Campenhoudt, having picked up the information through bibliographic and documentary research, exploratory interviews, direct observations and interview surveys. We concluded that, it is necessary for the restructuring of the existing regulation, where the training, the maintenance of the horses and the representation of the Army must be obvious, the missions of the Military Riding. On the other hand, in the short term, The management of the military resources devoted to riding, although already quite saturated, can be optimized. The levels of quality of the staff support, mainly from the TH, will be the main point to address the deficient amount of these resources. Finally, the DCCR, as a result of the allocation of civilian horses and of the opening of the teaching of riding to society, are a potentiality to indicate in favor of the system
