Kinematics of saddle and rider in high-level dressage horses performing collected walk on a treadmill

Byström, Anna; Rhodin, Marie; von Peinen, K; Weishaupt, M.A; Roepstorff, Lars


The literature suggests that the rider's influence on the movement pattern of the horse is the strongest at walk. For assessment of the horse-rider interaction in dressage horses presented for unsatisfactory performance, evaluations at walk may therefore be the most rewarding. Basic knowledge about rider and saddle movements in well-performing horses is likely to be supportive to this task.
