    In dressage, the performance of transitions between gaits and halts is an integral part of riding sessions.

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Megan Wilson, Jess Williams, V. Tamara Montrose, Jane Williams

    Most stallions within breeding programmes are expected to breed and compete concurrently. The exercising of stallions with regards to training regimes during the breeding season is a controversial subject. Daily exercise at low intensities is important for the mental and reproductive well-being...

    | Contributor(s):: Gala Argent

    As an overarching theme, this thesis is concerned with investigating archaeologically the relationships between humans and horses within the Iron Age Inner Asian society of the Pazyryk archaeological culture. Prior archaeologies of horses in Iron Age Eurasia have approached them in a segmented...

  7. Rigging a horse and rider: simulating the predictable and repetitive movement of the rider

    | Contributor(s):: Jennifer Lynn Kuhnel

    It is nice to give animators artistic freedom, but having to animate every bounce, sway, and counter-balancing movement of a rider on a horse isn't freedom at all. It is painstaking labor that could easily be prevented with an effective character setup. If an animation piece is only going to...

  8. Humans, Horses, and Hybrids : On Rights, Welfare, and Masculinity in Equestrian Sports

    | Contributor(s):: Kutte Jonsson

    The fact that horses play an essential role for equestrian sports raises rather specific ethical concerns. Questions like what should be morally permissible to do to (non-consenting) nonhumans for the sake of human interests become urgent. Is it not an example of (animal) rights violation to...

  9. Horse Injury during Non-Commercial Transport: Findings from Researcher-Assisted Intercept Surveys at Southeastern Australian Equestrian Events

    | Contributor(s):: Christopher B. Riley, Belinda R. Noble, Janis Bridges, Susan J. Hazel, Kirrilly Thompson

    Equine transportation research has largely focused on the commercial land movement of horses. Data on the incidence and factors associated with horse injuries during non-commercial transportation (privately owned horse trucks and trailers) is scant. This study surveyed 223 drivers transporting...

  10. Preventing and Investigating Horse-Related Human Injury and Fatality in Work and Non-Work Equestrian Environments: A Consideration of the Workplace Health and Safety Framework

    | Contributor(s):: Meredith Chapman, Kirrilly Thompson

    It has been suggested that one in five riders will be injured due to a fall from a horse, resulting in severe head or torso injuries. Attempts to reduce injury have primarily focussed on low level risk controls, such as helmets. In comparison, risk mitigation in high risk workplaces and sports is...

  11. Factors Influencing the Safety Behavior of German Equestrians: Attitudes towards Protective Equipment and Peer Behaviors

    | Contributor(s):: Christina-Maria Ikinger, Jana Baldamus, Achim Spiller

    Human interactions with horses entail certain risks. Although the acceptance and use of protective gear is increasing, a high number of incidents and very low or inconsistent voluntary use of safety equipment are reported. While past studies have examined factors influencing the use of safety...

  12. The Contribution of Equitation Science to Minimising Horse-Related Risks to Humans

    | Contributor(s):: Melissa Starling, Andrew McLean, Paul McGreevy

    Equitation science is an evidence-based approach to horse training and riding that focuses on a thorough understanding of both equine ethology and learning theory. This combination leads to more effective horse training, but also plays a role in keeping horse riders and trainers safe around...

  13. The knowledge, perception and utilization of equine chiropractic by horse riders in KwaZulu-Natal

    | Contributor(s):: Kirsten Moya Snow

    Background:  Horses are unlike most animals as they take part in equine sports and thus are athletic animals.  Comparable to a human athlete, horses are prone to sports related injuries and disease. Equine  chiropractic has shown to be one of the most utilized forms of...

  19. "Loving-knowing" women and horses: Symbolic connections, real life conflicts and "natural horsemanship"

    | Contributor(s):: Savvides, Nikki

    Since the late nineteenth century, female authors have suggested that Western women and horses have an innate connection. Often, the connection is categorized in terms of female “empowerment” and “liberation,” with the rise of female equestrianism playing an important role...

    | Contributor(s):: Ricky Hardy
