It is widely known that the appearance of the coat hair is of vital importance when assessing the general state of health of a horse. However, we would like to address two symptoms that have not or scarcely been discussed by literature: isolated long hairs and yellowness of the coat.

Isolated long hairs
Isolated long hairs are a frequently overlooked phenomenon which is found mainly on the lower neck and on the belly. In common knowledge these hairs point to malnutrition. This can surely be true, however, our experience shows that this problem is far more complex and in most cases these hairs form an indication for a malfunctioning metabolism.
The only solution here is specific training that bears in mind the handedness and biomechanics of the horse.

Yellowness of the coat
According to our experience, the colour of the coat is not considered in the assessment of horses even though it has a high informative value when talking about the general state of health – and thus the metabolism – of a horse.

Long standing observations of horses that came to the centre of ARR for training lead Gabriele Rachen-Schöneich to the belief that the colour of the coat could indicate malfunctioning of the metabolism of those horses. The coat would then adopt a clearly visible yellowness which was irrespective of the actual ground colour of the coat.

Should this assumption be in accordance with the facts, then with the training in the sense of ARR, which activates the metabolism through the transformation of the biomechanics of the flight animal into the biomechanics of the athlete, we should be able to observe a significant change in the coat of these horses. Our empirical research has shown: During the training in the sense of ARR the coat becomes more colourful, darker and expressive – we can say that the colour changes into a vital resplendence.

Today we can say without a doubt that this yellowish appearance of the coat hair clearly indicates a malfunctioning metabolism. The positive effect that the training in the sense of ARR has on the metabolism has always been one of the most important statements. It now finds its approval in the observations of changes in the colour of the coat of hundreds of horses.
