Coaching / 2017 Russell Guire Road Shows

Kindly supported by The Worshipful Company of Saddlers

“Optimising the Horse & Rider System”

Russell Guire (Bsc Hons) will be delivering this year’s Road Shows. Russell is the founder of Centaur Biomechanics which uses state of the art technology to look at horse and rider interaction.
Russell has completed many research projects particularly looking at the influence different surfaces have on limb kinematics, the effect studs have on turning kinematics, and more recently Russell’s research has focused on the effect that girths, saddles and bridles have on the locomotion of the horse.
Russell is currently studying for his PhD at the Royal Veterinary College.  He is focusing on horse and rider interaction, in particular the effect the saddle and rider have on equine spinal kinematics and locomotion.
Since 2006 Russell has worked with the British Equestrian Federation’s World Class Programme in providing performance analysis to all disciplines, has featured in many equestrian articles and books and regularly speaks at conferences throughout the world.

This conference will count as a CPD refresher for Pony Club coaches but is open to anybody to attend.

These roadshows will count as a CPD refresher for Pony Club.

The following topics will be covered:

    The effect that the equipment we use has on the locomotion of the horse - including out of balance saddles, girths, bridles, saddle, studs, mounting blocks, training aids.

      The effect that the rider has on the horse - including position, perception of position, trends in population of riders, balance

      The evening will commence at 6.30pm and finish around 9.30pm
