For long centuries near to the person, the horse became an integral part of world culture: it constantly appears in folklore, myths and fairy tales, to it till now devote verses and songs. It would Seem, all it is very far from the modern person, however horses help us to revive the forgotten sensations of our ancestors - passion of dashing races, taming wild live beings, absolute merge to the nature.
First time mounting, the person usually at all does not suspect, how much strong sensations he should go through. «The first sensation, that you have come off the earth. You do not go itself and as though you fly up», - speaks Liuba, the manager, the beginning equestrian-fan. - «Suddenly it appears, that you can go, not using for this purpose own feet. And it not the iron box with gasoline, is a live being which, in general, has started up you on the back, has trusted …».
From the party the horse and the skilled horseman seem to the single whole understanding each other without special efforts. However to achieve such mutual understanding it is possible far not at once. First time having mounted you will understand, that the horseman on a horse does not sit is a popular belief - and more likely balances. And the it is less at it than experience, force in feet and feelings of balance, the more difficultly to it to be kept in a saddle. Therefore for the first trip top it is better to choose the quietest horse, not that you risk to appear on the earth first minutes of walk.
Horses obey certain signals: have squeezed sides feet - to begin or accelerate movement, have pulled for reins - to stop or reduce speed, have pulled for one occasion - to turn. However, having felt on the back of the uncertain horseman, the horse can and not obey a habitual command. «The main thing - to subordinate this power to the will. Here goes not ëîìêà horses or its psychology», - Maria Vodolazhskaja, the equestrian-fan tells. - «The core in this process - to force this huge, in general, a wild being which is capable you to kill at any moment, to make what wished by you».
That the horse obeyed the equestrian, it is necessary to show hardness from first minute of dialogue, but also about caress to forget it is impossible. If you wish to come into contact to your racer, in advance prepare for it something âêóñíåíüêîå: carrots, sweet apples, drying. After you have together practiced - award it, the animal will remember it. «When you over and over again come to a horse, look after it, feed, communicate, she understands it and feels gratitude, learns you and necessarily welcomes», - Sergey Slutsky, the equestrian-fan tells. - «By the way, horses very much even realise, when are guilty. Well here, for example, there has pushed a horse around, casually, happens such, - and so, at once tries to smooth down fault, makes up. Perhaps for example, to make what does not like to do. Well does not like to jump or a leg to give, and here - please. And itself will approach, and in an ear will breathe».

But always it is necessary to remember, that a horse not a toy, and the live being demanding care and attention, and, besides, and considerable expenses. «Sometimes we face such thoughtless people who concern a horse only as to entertainment», - Alexander Kuptsov, the instructor of horse-racing school tells. - «Buy a horse from a whim - for the summer to drive, not reflecting, that with it to do in the winter, not speaking already, as in the summer appropriate leaving and a food is necessary to it. We then should treat long such animals».

Who, and your four-footed pupil does not have affairs before, whether are you the succeeding businessman known for the film director or the simple school teacher. It is important, that you are together given to a gallop and overcome obstacles.
