Basic Horse Riding Tips for Beginners

Horse riding is good fun, and a very healthy sport for all ages to take part in, but it should always be kept in mind that riding can be a dangerous activity. So with this in mind I have written these few tips on safety and horsemanship to help you enjoy your sport.

If you are new to riding then you should definitely take some lessons from a good qualified instructor first. Your instructor will teach you all the basics about horse riding and will advise you on all the relevant safety measures that you should take when around horses.

Although this is very basic information you should still follow these rules at all times. Never ever walk around behind a horse. When a horse can hear something behind it and can only barely see some movement, out of fear many horses will kick out, it should be remembered that a kick from a horse can cause serious injury and may even prove fatal!!

Next, wear a suitable riding hat or helmet, there is no fun in landing on your head when you have been thrown or fallen from a horse. Also you should wear appropriate foot ware, riding boots if possible these will help you to keep your feet in their stirrups.

Riding solo is not to be recommended, if you fell and were injured you could be in serious trouble before you were found. Even if you are an experienced rider on a calm intelligent animal and were going into the forest to ride alone you should still tell someone what route you are taking and when you expect to return.

How you handle the reins is crucial to controlling your horse and keeping good balance. Keep your hands low just above the front of the saddle this will help to keep your centre of gravity low and help you to be stable in the saddle.

Now if you have a healthy well adjusted animal to ride, within reason there are few boundaries on what you and your horse can do. Whether you wish to walk, trot, canter or gallop the only barrier is the skill of the rider.

The most important safety skill of riding is being able to stop your horse where and whenever you want. If you have maintained the correct hand position and grip on the reins while riding it should be relatively easy to stop your horse, just pulling your hands back firmly will pull the horse’s head down and bring him to a halt.

Directing a horse is also easy if they are given the proper signals. If you wish to turn to the right just pull back on the right reins and apply pressure to the horses belly with your right boot, and for turning left do exactly the same with the left reins and boot.

Riding, Running and Rebounding For Health and Fitness

What do horseback riding, cycling and running all have in common? Simple! They all require a strong, lifted core to execute and maximize the exercise. That means that rely on the use of the abdominal center, erectors of the back and spine, tuck of the butt and lift of the lower back to maneuver and they also require/benefit from open, lifted and proud shoulders.

It also should come as no surprise that the cross-training benefits of yoga and pilates, in building core strength, re-aligning musculature and developing mind-body connections are transferable to these exercise disciplines. What might surprise and delight is the use of a rebound exercise tool, the Kangoo Jumps, as a recommended resource for the devotee of riding, cycling and running to maximize cardiovascular training and effectiveness.

A young woman wrote to me recently, looking for a way and a recommendation as to how she could put less stress on her body (knees, joints, ankles, hips) while gaining aerobic and cardiovascular conditioning. A lover of Pilates and equestrian sports judge by profession, she wanted a way to maximize her fitness programming, increase her cardiovascular fitness training while preventing injury to her body. She didn’t want to run anymore because of the stress and strain it caused to her knees. I knew her connectedness to nature, the outdoors and the feeling of control through movement was tantamount to finding success for her training. While I don’t ride horses, I do understood the desire to avoid the body breakdown caused by of running. Torn, as she was, as I find it to have the closest connection one can duplicate to the experience of riding in the open, free space and having a connected feeling to the elements.

I understood the need to avoid the body breakdown as it was my personal pursuit a few month earlier. As an exceptionally active person, the older I got, the more pounding, I experienced on my knees, heels and hip joints and less and less I enjoyed running 3 miles, 2x week to keep my weight in check. As a result, last spring, I bought a pair of Kangoo Jumps and totally eliminated the pain (and recovery) in each and everyone one of my workouts. For that reason, I recommended the same option to her.

The shoes are based on rebound exercise and are a low impact rebound sport shoe designed to provide a safe platform for jogging and other exercises that are hard on the joints. The boots use a lightweight spring to absorb the shocks due to impact on the ground and create a rebound effect that reduces shock impact on ankles, knees, hips and lower back. They are Swiss designed for joggers, however, they also provide benefits for athletic strengthening and conditioning, rehabilitation and injury prevention and group aerobics. The unique “floating above the ground” sensation created by Kangoo Jumps has to be experienced to be understood.

Core balance and control are two other variables (and benefits) of using the shoes for training.

Quality vs Quantity

Kangoo Jumps deliver the benefit of 50-minutes exercise in only 20 minutes and the injury prevention potential has already caught the attention of several elite football teams. The boots can be used indoors or outdoors on paved roads, dirt paths and grass as well as at the beach or on snow. N.A.S.A. has found rebound exercise to be the best form of exercise for astronauts because it restores bone and muscle mass lost during time spent in outer space. Consequently Kangoo Jumps are recommended for people suffering osteoporosis, with the “slow-motion” steps and exercises of Kangoo Aerobics make it suitable for middle aged and senior people.

Other Cardiovascular Options

The other option I recommended, and one I personally use during the warm weather months, to avoid joint pain, is a road bike. A road bike and a trail can make a world of difference in clearing your head while building cardiovascular strength. Climbing hills with a bike will give anyone keen cardiovascular training.

As a Pilates and equestrian sports devotee, my friend already understood the reliance on core strength and easily made the connection that these two disciplines were good cross-training modalities to support the prevention and overuse of muscle and back pain; typical injuries and imbalances caused by cycling.

3 Tips For a Budget Holiday Road Trip

Looking for budget travel plans for your next long weekend holiday? A road trip might be your best shot!

1. Rented cars is the most economical solution for road trips.

Car rental companies normally offer a variety of ‘holiday car rental’ packages for holiday travelers to select from. These packages have to be affordable for travelers who are on budget and also wants to have a free & easy driving holiday.

Holiday car rental has been appealing to seasoned travelers and lately has attracted younger travelers that want to explore places that are less travelled. Competitive holiday car rental rates help travelers to save money and enable them to go to places less-travelled where ordinary holiday travelers are unable to explore.

With the advent of intra-Asia travel, holiday car rental will continue to grow as it offers the benefit of leisure travel at individual pace. As a result, many rental companies are aggressively marketing their holiday car rental program to meet the discerning needs of travelers. Several rental companies have seen double digit growth and demand continue to increase for this segment of the business.

2. Plan your route wisely. Use Google Map or GPS Navigation.

A traditional way of planning your driving route is to purchase a printed map from a bookstore. Today, it is a lot more convenient to just route your journey on Google Map, then just print out the map with specific driving directions. But for the adventurous travelers, a GPS navigation system is their best choice. And more than often, a GPS Navigator is included in your rented car for just a little extra money.

3. Travel packages for overnight trips – Low cost and safety.

If you are planning an overnight stay, then you should check with your rental company for any travel packages available. Many do offer competitive travel packages to attract budget holiday travelers. Working closely with travel agencies, they are able to offer special rates on hotels, motels and inns, which sometimes also provide occupants with complimentary breakfast.

It is also usually safer to go with the hotels, motels or inns associated with your rental company. Their relationships with your rental company should indicate that they meet a certain quality standard and are more trustworthy.

Seven Harmful Chemicals in Cigarettes(sigarette elettroniche) That Will Put You Off For Life

When you go out and buy a cigarette(sigaretta elettronica) are you aware of all the chemicals that exist in a cigarette(cigarettes electroniques)? Well you know about Nicotine but do you know what it does to you? No I would say you honestly do not have a clue! Well I am going to tell you because if you really want to go along in life blindly smoking cigarettes(cigarette electronique) then I think somebody ie ME, should open those eyes for you.
To start with before I wrote this article I was not aware of all the chemicals that are contained in that little stick you put in your mouth. Well it has been determined that the smoke from a fag emits up to 4000 chemicals which could have various toxic, mutagenic – capable of inducing mutation and carcinogenic – causing or tending to cause cancer effects. The content and concentration of chemical ingredients can vary widely from one brand or type of cigarette(elektronisk cigaret) to the next. Below is a list of 7 of those 4000 and what they do.

NICOTINE – (Insecticide/addictive drug) – This is one of the most addictive substances known to man. This is the chemical that causes addiction to the cigarette(elektroniske cigaretter) and is a very powerful and fast acting medical and non-medical poison.

CARBON MONOXIDE (Car Exhaust Fumes) – This is an odourless and tasteless poisonous gas. If taken in large amounts it can be fatal.

AMMONIA (toilet cleaner) – This product is found in dry cleaning products, but its use in a cigarette(elektronischen zigaretten) is to give flavouring and to release the Nicotine from the tobacco to turn it into a gas.

FORMALDEHYDE (embalming fluid) – A colourless liquid used to preserve dead bodies. It is highly poisonous and can cause cancer as well as respiratory, skin and stomach problems.

BENZENE (petrol additive) – A colourless hydrocarbon obtained from coal and petroleum. It is used as a solvent in fuel and chemical manufacture and is released in the smoke of the cigarette(elektronische zigarette). It is known to cause cancer and especially leukaemia.

ACETONE (nail polish remover) – Used as a solvent and found in the smoke of the cigarette(cigarrillos electronicos).

TAR – This is the main chemical drawn into the lungs. When a cigarette(cigarrillo electronico) is smoked the actual smoke that is inhaled condenses and approx 70% of the tar in the smoke is deposited into the lungs.

Now that I have written the above I can see how people become addicted so easily but I cannot see any reason to not attempt to break the addiction. If anyone who wants to give up cannot see a good reason not to then I feel very sorry for their health. Also I want everyone to give up as I do not want to inhale passive smoke from anybody because I too can see what harm that must do to non smoker.

Publishing Industry Jobs

As recently as five to seven years ago, careers in the publishing industry were actually limited because of the small number of existing publishing houses, and the majority of those have been privately owned for generations and remain so today. However, many opportunities exist in the publishing industry because of the new innovative technology that has arisen out of the Internet.

Probably the most obvious job within the publishing industry is that of an author. The second most well known or recognized job outside of the publishing industry is that of a literary agent, and the third is editor.

Authors write the material or texts that are to be published. They submit their work to literary agents who forward the work onto the editors of publishing companies. Sometimes authors will forward their work directly onto the editor, foregoing the agent who will take a percentage cut of the author’s paycheck.

If the author is really lucky, the editor will call him directly with a job.

One of the problems is letting go of out-dated thinking and processes. While some places may have a ‘top-down’ problem, others have leadership that actually do think in terms of the 21st century and new media opportunities. But they are most likely the exception. Part of the problem is one of a slow-to-change work culture.

There are many (great) veteran editors and sales people in publishing companies near and far that have held on tightly to the same way of doing things; editors used to only have to work on a print version of a magazine and sales made fairly easy commissions on recurring print advertising. Now editors frequently have several outlets to satisfy (print, web, podcast interviews, webcasts and, yes, videos) while sales people have to sell sponsorships for these new content vehicles. Sales people also need to understand these new technologies to convincingly sell them.

Thepeople working in desktop publishing use a computer software in order to produce and format publication material. They basically use numbers, text and data to prepare the publication material. The publication material can range from newsletters, newspapers to magazines and books.

There is a huge demand for people in the desktop publishing industry. In fact the statistics show that about 4 out of 10 desktop publishing professionals work in various newspapers, books, periodicals and directories. Every 1 professional out of 4 work in the printing industry and other related activities.

The statistics also show that employment figures are also expected to grow faster in the near future.The jobs are easily accessible for people with a certificate or degree. To receive a degree you can get a training from an accredited vocational school or college. The time that you’ll have to invest in order to get a certificate in desktop publishing is not much, in fact it in about a year, what it takes to get yourself a desktop publishing certificate.

There are other lesser known jobs in the publishing industry other than author, agent, editor, and publisher. One of these lesser known jobs is that of author publicist. The publicist takes the published book, the author, and puts together a public relations campaign that goes beyond simply marketing. If the author is a growing phenomenon, chances are that the publicist can be seen right beside the author during book tours.

The most recent craze for individuals attempting to stop smoking ecigarette(cigarros electronicos) or cigarette(cigarette ). Apparently, the evening, the emerged like a viable solution, most probably to prevent smoking, and appropriately so: the ecigarette(cigarro electronico) isn’t a cigarette(cigarro), just calm your nicotine craving.

Kids Waterproof Splashsuits – The Essential Travel Garment For Your Young Child

Most adults would simply prefer to stay indoors when it is raining. Nobody wants to get soaking wet. However, kids really enjoy playing in the rain and splashing in puddles. They are thrilled when it is necessary to go out in the rain. Of course their parents do not really enjoy dealing with the results. The kids will get soaking wet and dirty from all the water. Choosing the right waterproof clothing for your child can really help prevent your child from getting too wet and catching a chill.

There are a number of different types of kits waterproof clothing available, so you can choose the one that is most suitable for your child. One option that many people don’t think about which is particularly good for very young children is the splashsuit. When it comes to kids waterproof clothing, the splashsuit is the most likely to keep your child dry. This is because it is a one piece outfit that has a hood and straps to go under your child’s feet. Add a pair of rain boots and your child will be covered from head to foot. Young children have difficulty holding an umbrella, and will want to splash in puddles so this is a great solution for them.

Kids waterproof clothing for slightly older kids can be chosen to suit their interests and their behavior. Those who still refuse to stay out of the puddles can wear splashsuits, while those who are better behaved can choose a combination of a raincoat or poncho with a matching umbrella and rain boots. This will keep them mostly dry and let them have a few more options when it comes to the design of their rain gear. Another option is to get separate dungarees and jackets so that they will still be fully covered when they are out in the rain.

Raincoats are available with designs including dinosaurs, bugs, firemen, pirates, sail boats, alligators, ladybugs, bees, frogs, butterflies, flowers, ducks, watermelons, strawberries, fairies, and more. Many of these coats have hoods, so an umbrella is not necessary, although kids tend to like to carry them once they reach a certain age. These are great for preschoolers and those who are just starting school. They will be more likely to actually want to wear their waterproof clothing if it is in a design that they really love.

For those older kids that view kids waterproof clothing with designs as being a bit childish, there is rain gear available in solid colors, or combinations of solid colors, such as red and gray or blue and gray, that look a bit more adult and might appeal to older kids a bit more.

Some of the options that are currently available for kids waterproof clothing are made so that they are easily packable for when you want to go on a trip, or just to have available in your bag should it start to rain unexpectedly. Some brands now manufacture very lightweight packable splashsuits and jackets which are ideal for taking on holiday as they take up so little room in the suitcase.
