Bridle Work Methodology

Intercommunication Program / Demonstration Clinic

Russ Krachun will share his unconventional bridle ground work methodology that prepares and educate the horseman how to communicate to the horse through the reins from the ground. By understanding these methods on the ground, the horseman will then transfer this bridle work methodology to the riding methodology without causing confusion for the horse or the horseman. The horse will become better prepared both physically and mentally to learn how to use the poll, neck, shoulders, rib cage and hindquarters. Each step by step method builds understanding and muscle memory through the use of proper timing and repetition, resulting in a responsive educated horse.

Day One – July 20/19

Educational Methods:

  • Develop flexibility and muscle memory of the horse neck muscles from the left side in forward motion (walk & trot)
  • Develop flexibility and muscle memory of the horse neck muscles from the right side in forward motion (walk & trot)
  • Develop flexibility and muscle memory of the horse neck muscles from the left and the right sides by changing direction from the left to the right and also from right to the left (walk & trot)
  • Develop flexibility, coordination and muscle memory in the horse rib cage by travelling in a left circle (walk, trot)
  • Develop flexibility and coordination and muscle memory in the horse rib cage by travelling in a right circle (walk, trot)
  • Develop flexibility, coordination and muscle memory in the horse hind quarters from the left and the right sides of the horse body at the walk and trot
  • Develop flexibility, coordination and muscle memory in the horse hindquarters by changing the direction with hindquarters from left to right or right to left at the walk and trot
  • Develop coordination and balance in the horse left front shoulders while travelling in a forward motion (walk)
  • Develop coordination and balance in the horse right front shoulders while travelling in a forward motion (walk)

Day Two – July 21/19

Educational Methods:

  • Educate the horse to become balanced and coordinated by educating the horse to use left front shoulder while in a backup manoeuver in big circle to the right
  • Educate the horse to become balanced and coordinated by educating the horse to use right front shoulder while in a backup manoeuver in a big circle to the left
  • Develop the horse’s balance and coordination in a backup manoeuver by using left side of the hind quarters in a big circle to the right
  • Develop the horse’s balance and coordination in a backup manoeuver by using the right side of the hindquarters in a big circle to the left
  • Develop balance, coordination and muscle memory in both sides of the horse front shoulders and both sides of the horse hindquarters while travelling in a straight line while in the back up manoeuver
  • Educate the horse to become balanced, coordinated and develop physical abilities in the front shoulders and the hindquarters from the left and the right side when the horse turns 360 degrees
  • Develop horse balance and coordination and physical abilities in the front shoulders and hindquarters in a two tracking manoeuver in the left side of the horse body
  • Develop horse balance and coordination and physical abilities in the front shoulders and hindquarters in a two tacking manoeuver in the right side of the horse body

Outcome

All learning and education is at the level of the receiver.  It is important to know that it takes time to develop coordination and muscle skills, and it is also very important to practice and work with your horse regularly in order for you to succeed.  Russ Krachun Kozak Horsemanship is not responsible for the final results that you and your horse reach during or after the clinic.
