3 Key Areas Every Riding Instructor Must Master

3 Key Areas Every Riding Instructor Must Master

Riding instructors, to be successful at their craft, must strive to gain an exceptional understanding of several key equestrian subjects. By increasing their skill in the 3 aspects of riding instruction, horse training and stable management, instructors can build their business to be a viable and sustainable enterprise.

Rider Work 

Instructors help riders improve their skills on horseback. Quality riding instruction accommodates students with a widely variable array of skill levels. Beginner riding instruction can be taught in group lessons. Teaching students on an individual basis benefits those requesting intermediate and advanced equestrian training. A firm foundation in the basics of proper equitation, as well as training horseback riders over schooling horse jumps and cavaletti, encompass topics in which the instructor must be well versed.

Horse Work

Instructors also often work as horse trainers. Student mounts may need additional training that the novice equestrian is not currently skilled enough to give on their own. Individuals may also request training of their horses without further riding instruction for themselves. Gaining experience training all sorts of horses will help you to achieve excellent results with the horses that you train for your students and yourself.

Stable Work 

The stable and its management also play a large part in the success of any professional riding teacher. An additional source of income for instructors often comes from boarding student horses. This requires recordkeeping, including maintenance of stable supplies such as bedding and feed. You may choose to add additional help from grooms and …

Capuchin Pet Monkeys

Capuchin Pet Monkeys

What’s it prefer to live using a pet monkey…

Owning a monkey under the appropriate conditions can be an amazing and hugely entertaining experience – while at the same time a huge time commitment that will alter your lifestyle drastically, and long term.

I have owned a pet monkey for 8 years now and I know many other people who have them. But that is not to say that it is for everyone. Some responsible people have and hold monkeys as pets. They spend a lot of time with their monkey. They don’t keep them locked up in a cage for 8 – 10 hours while they are away to work or school. They will keep the monkeys with them as much as possible so that the monkey does not feel abandoned. They make sure that they eat an appropriate diet (there is both a soft food and hard food – monkey chow).

The key to having is a successful monkey is a TIME. Spending a lot of time with your monkey is the difference between having a relatively well-behaved member of the family (with sneaky monkey tendencies) and having a mean aggressive caged animal. And if it is constantly caged and becomes angry and mean – it is not hard to understand why. Our monkey is with us 24 hours per day. Most people that think they want a pet monkey will quickly say, “I can do that – that is not a problem…” But they are not thinking …

How To Insure Your Animals

Animals are important companions to people in everyday life. Whether you are a pet owner, work on a farm, or simply have a love for furry or scaly creatures, the animals in your life need to be safe and protected. Luckily, there is insurance for all types of animals in all types of situations available for purchase.

Horse Insurance

Insurance specific to horses is most useful for those who teach horseback riding to people who are not normally around horses. Novice horseback riders are much more prone to equine-related injuries than trained professionals, so horse insurance can keep your business from being struck with a hefty lawsuit. Horse insurance also offers coverage on the animals themselves for injuries that could keep them performing properly. If you are worried about horse insurance cost, the Ark International Group has plenty of information on the cost you can expect to get started with horse insurance.

Pet Insurance

People get pet insurance for similar reasons that they get health insurance for themselves. Pet insurance can help reduce the cost of any medical procedures your pet needs to undergo. It can cost thousands of dollars to treat serious pet injuries, and many pet owners cannot deal with the financial stress that puts on them. Some pet insurance plans even cover routine checkups at the vet. Pet insurance is one of the fastest-growing types of insurance today, so there are a variety of options to choose from to suit your pet’s needs and to make …

Selecting the Right Dog Harness for Your Pooch

These days, a lot of people are buying dog harnesses instead of collars. People love their dogs, and by buying a harness they’re less likely to choke while being  how do you decide which one to buy? After all, you aren’t a dog so you don’t know what they might like.

There’s a few things to consider here:

1) What kind would work best for your pooch? 2) How much money can you spend on a soft pooch harness?

Let’s jump right in to the first question-

What Kind do I Need?

Here’s a few questions to ask yourself to figure that out:

  • Is your dog male or female? You don’t want a pink harness on a male dog, right? 
  • Does your dog love to swim? If so, leather may not be a good choice- go with nylon instead.
  • Will the harness be used on long walks? Does your dog pull hard, or is it pretty calm and gentle while being walked?
  • Is their skin sensitive? What is their fur like? 
  • Is this small dog harness to help strap your dog into the car? If so, how long are the trips you’ll be making with it? You definitely want your dog to be comfortable, right?
  • Will your dog get the harness dirty, so it has to be machine washable?

The last thing to do is determine if a harness will be big enough. Because most harnesses are measured by girth, that is how you should measure your pooch. All you …
