Chazot Speaks

Chazot Speaks






Hi I'm Chazot. For this part, I am taking over the text. Jean Luc told me that some peoples were confused by his accent so I offered to be the voice. As you know, I can read his mind. However, since he is my teacher, I may have the same voice and the same accent. 
Just give me a second; I have a itch . In this second installment on the longitudinal flexion of the equine thoracolumbar spine, we have to address the issue of the lowering of the neck, since, in spite of knew knowledge, the lowering of our neck remains associated to two major misconceptions. One is that longitudinal flexion of out thoracolumbar column is a geometrical shape that can be created lowering our neck. The second is that longitudinal flexion of our thoracolumbar spine is an elongation that can be enhanced stretching our neck. 
Considering the human nature, Tom Gilovitch explains why the theory will not go away very soon. If one wants to believe that the lowering of the neck is a stretching, one will look only for evidences that the theory might be true. "If we find a single piece of evidence, then we are done. We stop. We have a reason, we can trot out to support our belief.” 



A large majority of equestrian theories never go beyond superficial appearances. Henry Greber wrote, "It is possible to defeat failure by analyzing its causes and correcting them, not by studying the conditions of success.” Helyn and Jean Luc used this quote in one of their early webpage and it was not well received. "Studying the conditions of success,” is what the equestrian education is all about; "more bit”, "fitting the saddle to our back muscles imbalance, "injecting our hocks,” etc. Performances and soundness demand instead, analyzing the causes of failure. In lieu of "more bit”, educating our vertebral column mechanism allowing balance control is more efficient and last longer. Instead of fitting the saddle to our back muscles imbalance, correcting our muscular imbalance is undoubtedly a more efficient approach. Rather than injecting our hocks, recreating proper functioning of our vertebral column mechanism regularize the stresses induces on our hocks' joints. When motion became a science, which is truly the art of riding, the science of motion furthers the capacities of drugs and stationary therapies.

Lateral Bending

Excerpt from Navicular DVD






../innovaeditor/assets/admin/navleg6.jpg

This is a small excerpt from the DVD Navicular Syndrome availible to purchase at www.scienceofmotion.com

"Four Cases of Navicular Syndrome” Introduction

Under the title, "Four Cases of Navicular Syndrome”, a quote of Arthur Clarke say, "The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.” Considering the knowledge available in 1986 when the first and successful rehabilitation from navicular syndrome was completed, the technique applied ventured a little into the impossible.

It was entirely based on veterinary researches but the findings were pertinent and novel. Today, advanced research studies fully corroborate the principles presented in this document. However, even if immensely effective, the technique remains largely unknown because it shakeups conventional thinking. Even if progresses have been made in the matter; the general consensus remains influenced by the thought that back problems are only compensation for hock pain or other musculoskeletal disorders. At the contrary, in each case, we have corrected the limb kinematics abnormality causing the development of navicualr syndrome addressing the vertebral column dysfunction that engendered the limb kinematics abnormality.  

The author of the scientific discovery that has permit these successful rehabilitations wrote, "The disease is therefore, considered to be reversible” (Ostblom, 1982). However, the journey is difficult and demands equitation and a work in hand resolutely more elaborated than the principles commonly emphasized. If you feel that your horse's soundness merits venturing in a better world. This video is for you.

DUPLICATE IHTC In Hand Therapy Course an excerpt

IHTC






The In Hand Therapy Course
A zest of classicism and a large body of science.
A one year course of Corrective Biomechanics.
In Hand Therapy Course (IHTC) is designed for therapists anxious to further their knowledge as well as riders/trainers interested in extending their ability to reeducate horses and prevent injuries. IHTC provides both, knowledge and the practical application of knowledge.
Three monthly studies, (twelve months) – "In Hand Technique” – "Equine biomechanics and corrective biomechanics” – "Case study”
The In Hand Technique is the zest of classicism.

-The technique is inspired from General Decarpentry's Academic Equitation and updated to actual knowledge of the equine physiology.
-This specific in hand technique allows accessing and influencing the horse's vertebral column mechanism. (Most limbs kinematics abnormalities originate from improper functioning of the horse's thoracolumbar spine).

-Monthly instructive videos teach first the basic and then, the many subtleties of the technique. (It does not take long to teach the basics, however, there is a lot more to this technique than walking next to the horse performing some movements. The in hand education focuses on achieving sophisticated control of the horse's vertebral column mechanism.)

The continuing education series (biomechanics) explains,
- How the horse's physique is designed to work, (functional horse).
- Kinematics abnormalities leading to injuries
- Kinematics abnormalities created by training misconceptions visit http://scienceofmotion.com/documents/in_hand_therapy_course_.html

Lunging with tradition (Decarpentry) and Modern Science (Science Of Motion) DVD

Chazot and Jean Luc Cornille






Information on Jean Luc Cornille DVD which can be purchased at scienceofmotion.com 

This unedited video of a full lunging session shows physiologically correct movement, (natural cadence), verses fast forward motion. At the walk, trot, and canter, correct movement is point out while incorrect movement, when it happens, is underlined and explained. The lunging technique, the choice of body language instead of voice commands, the easy to teach cues which allow sound education are also explained. This is not a demonstration abundantly edited to accredit preconceived opinion. This video is a non-edited lunging session showing good and bad moments and how bad moments are analyzed and converted into sound gymnastic for the horse.


The purpose here is not to promote lunging but rather present a technique minimizing the damages caused by long lunging sessions.

The two elements that are minimizing the side effects of lunging are for one, adding as many straight lines as possible and for two, maintaining the horse at his natural cadence. Cues and voice commands are useful as long as they are reduced to the minimum.

 

Decarpentry's technique works well if the horse has been trained to give a very light contact on the bit. By contrast, the technique may rapidly over-bend the horse's neck if the horse is leaning heavily on the bit or the trainer is maintaining a strong contact on the lunge line.

Chazot A walk on the wild side

Chazot 2nd day outside of farm






We have analyzed the rearing in hand. It looks like the way Chazot controls his balance when he is at the higher point, is by pushing all his body forward through a small jump. If you look at the hind legs, they are too far forward to carry him. He should then fall backward. His technique is to control balance propelling his body forward through a jump. The interesting point is that he no longer even thinks to rear when he is under  the saddle. When he is mischievous, he bounces forward keeping the neck low. My guess is that the excitement of being into a new place triggered old memories. The lesson is that a horse never fully erases bad memories. Interestingly, the Courbette practiced at the Spanish Riding School is performed through the same idea. The horse is supposed to execute three jumps forward on his rear legs. The Courbette executed at Saumur is more like a rearing. The rider is supposed to stay perpendicular to the horse.
