Equine and Rider Biomechanics CPD Day

5 Sept 2016

Categories:

The Equine and Rider Biomechanics with Russell Guire from Centaur Biomechanics and supported by College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise.

This training day will be of benefit to all those within equestrianism and is a Continual Professional Development Day for the BHS Register of Instructors. Everyone is welcome to attend. Centaur Biomechanics is a company dedicated to helping horses and riders of all levels improve their riding and horse's way of going. Centaur Biomechanics offers an array of services which have been designed to improve both the rider's position and horse's performance.

Currently the assessment of equine locomotion and lameness is carried out visually and cannot be reliably or consistently quantified. Equine practitioners often disagree on the extent of lameness. In addition the assessment cannot easily be communicated and has very little or no historic value. The objective measurement  of lameness and changes in locomotion are the missing pieces of critical information needed to make key decisions related to equine health and performance.

The way the rider sits on the horse will have a dramatic effect on its soundness, performance and development.  Rider analysis will assist riders of all levels to help improve their position and horse's way of going. With the use of high speed video cameras (capturing 20 x faster than the human eye), Visualise training jackets and Quintic software the rider's position and horse's way of going can be constructively analysed.Russell, who carries out the analysis, is a keen rider himself and has worked all over the world helping riders improve their position and horse's performance.

Come along and find out more. This will be an inspirational and motivational day!

Discussion and interaction will be encouraged throughout the day. This is an essential training day for everyone interested in improving their understanding of and training of the horse and rider. The day counts as a Continual Professional Development day for BHS Registered Instructors.
