Throughness of a horse means that it willingly and freely follows the rider’s aids, that it lets the impulse, coming from the haunches, flow over the upward swinging back over the whole body and that it faithfully accepts the bit.

The importance of throughness is often underestimated; especially as it should be seen as the perfection of healthy and fine horsemanship and should be aimed for as the highest goal in the teamwork with a horse.

This is achieved through the complex synergy of the trapezius muscle, the musculus brachiocephalicus and the musculus rhomboideus.

The trapezius muscle and the musculus brachiocephalicus form a unit together with the front-heaviness; i.e. they are inseparable. If one of those three components springs into action, the other two react. The negative consequence is the relapse into the natural behaviour of the flight animal.

Moreover, the musculus rhomboideus, which lies directly underneath the trapezius muscle, tightens as a result of the direct contact of the hard hands to the horse’s mouth – especially together with excessive forward riding or a misunderstood forward-downward riding. The necessary throughness in the neck-shoulder area is left behind.

This is where the cause lies for an all too often occurring stagnation in the schooling of the riding horse.
