EXERCISES AND BIOMECHANICS – TO IMPROVE PERFORMANCE AND SOUNDNESS
Wednesday 22nd April, 2015 at 7.00pm
Nottingham Trent University, Brackenhurst Campus
Back by popular demand! Leading Equine and Human Sports Scientist - Russell Guire – will return to Nottingham Trent University’s Brackenhurst campus, this time, to give a LECTURE DEMONSTRATION in the Equestrian Centre’s impressive indoor school.
Biomechanics can help both the horse and rider improve in performance and achieve their goals. And it’s proved to be an invaluable application in maintaining soundness in the sport horse.....read more.
Russell Guire specializes in horse and rider performance analysis and works with the British Equestrian Federation dressage, show jumping, eventing and para-equestrian dressage teams. He’s also worked with the Federation Equestrian International (FEI), British Vaulting and British Horse Trials Driving teams.
During the course of the evening, he’ll discuss how biomechanics can be applied practically to help both you and your horse…and he’ll give us his perspective on the latest research in this fascinating field.
The way the rider sits on the horse will have a dramatic effect on its soundness, performance and development -and during the second part of the evening, using the latest tools, he’ll look at rider positioning in a team of Demonstration Riders.
Rider Analysis is useful for riders of all levels to help improve the rider's position and horse's way of going. With the use of high speed video cameras (capturing 20 x faster than the human eye), Visualise training jackets and Quintic software, each rider's position and horse's way of going will be constructively analysed.
Russell, a keen rider himself, has worked all over the world helping riders improve their position and horse's performance. His passion and easy going character will put riders at ease and ensure everyone gets the most out of what promises to be a most valuable and enlightening evening.
Nottingham Trent University’s Head of Animal and Equine Sciences, Heather Elston said: “Within our Equine science provision, biomechanics is a key area of interest and a research focus. The lecture demonstration will be of interest to anyone wishing to improve their knowledge of how horses move, perform and function in an attempt to maintain soundness and improve performance.”
Advance tickets – purchased before Friday 17th April 2015 are available at £17.50 per person. Light refreshments are provided.
