Horses with a burr under their saddle

Girthiness is commonly associated with the consequences of tightening the girth too quickly when the saddle is first put on. But although there has been so much progress in the field of saddle making during the last decades and the awareness of the importance of saddle fitting and careful girthing has positively changed, many of our modern riding horses across all breeds are girthy. On reflection, this does not come as a surprise. What if the reason for the girthiness of a large part of the horses concerned were to be found in the low back position?

It is often discussed at which point of time young stallions should be gelded. Many owners postpone the castration for a long time in order to prevent the young gelding to lose much of his charisma. A legitimate consideration, though it should also be looked at from a different point of view.
A castration means an intrusion in the hormonal balance. Consequently, it has a strong impact on the metabolism and therewith also on the musculoskeletal system. So the owner of the young stallion fears a disturbance of the musculature and muscle build-up.

It is possible to counteract these disturbances and this way positively influence the future of the young stallion. The basic schooling of ARR causes a general transformation of the biomechanics of the flight animal into the biomechanics of an athlete. If this training is started in the age of 2 ½ to 3 years, we achieve a change in the movement pattern to the point of ‘carrying itself’ within three weeks. This means we attain a strong muscle build-up through straightening, a good circulation, an efficient conversion of the fed energy in musculature and a perfectly functioning metabolism.

The stallion is now in an optimal and athletic condition for castration. This means that the operation will now have a considerably smaller impact on the whole body.

After a break of approx. 8-10 days the training is resumed and continued for another 14 days in order to reflate the entire metabolism. Such stallions hardly lose any charisma and have the prospect of a happy and healthy future.
