Stamattina sono andata a montare Nala!
Abbiamo fatto una lezione di lavoro in piano in vista del dressage alle Ponyadi😍: stiamo lavorando sul farla mettere a tondo, devo dire che è anche troppo brava per aver fatto solo 2 lezioni a riguardo. Piegava il collo e lo abbassava leggermente🤤
Davvero meravigliata dalla mia piccolina❤️
Questa foto gliel'ho fatta dopo la lezione (in box) e come sempre dopo averla lavata si è rotolata bene bene nel truciolo🙃😩! -

❓WHY WE MOUNT HORSES ON THE LEFT SIDE❔
Mounting from the left may have become the rule because early horse trainers noted that horses demonstrated a preference for being approached and worked from that side, which is now backed up by modern research. Testing reveals that the horse's left eye responds quicker and more strongly to stimuli, and they like to keep humans in that line of sight.
The cavalry of Alexander the Great, used a battle spear to pole vault aboard from the right. Samurai warriors are believed to have mounted from the right. Napoleon Bonaparte, wore his sword on the right, is said to have mounted from the right.
In Europe, wearing the sword at the left hip began in Rome and the practice continued into the Middle Ages as swords became longer and more difficult to manage. Most people then, as now, were right-handed and men hung their swords on their left side, hilt forward for a quick draw. Mounting from the left reduced the rider's chance of entangling himself in his weaponry or stabbing his steed. The tradition was preserved even with the lighter swords of the Renaissance, and continued until the cavalryman and his curved saber were retired from modern combat. By the era of the American cowboy in the late 1800s, mounting from the left had become entrenched as the only civilized way to do it.
Mounting consistently from the left side puts a lot of pressure on the right side of a horse's withers, which can cause a sore back. It also causes the muscles on either side of his body to develop differently. Training him to accept a rider from either side can help equalize this and make him more balanced. Even your saddle will benefit from using both sides to mount, the tree won't warp and the stirrup leathers will stretch equally.
I hope it was interesting!💖
QOTD: Have you ever try to mount on the right side?
