There are different types of trotting that can occur. Something that you want to do while training and getting ready is getting your body ready too. Depending on your age or your child’s age will depend on what type of training you should be doing. 

Add core strength to your regular routine

Core strength is a big part of riding horses that many people don’t realize. When you are on the horse you will end up needing to stay on it. Regardless of the horse is jumping, whether the horse is running, or you are simply getting up onto the horse, you want to have the best core strength you have so that you can get into different positions and have the least wind resistance as well as many other things as possible. Make sure that you keep this in mind. Now, that doesn’t just mean doing a million sit-ups. You want to do different types of exercises. Make sure to be working all of the areas of your core. This means your lower abs, your upper abs, and your lower back muscles. This will help everything to work a lot better when you are on your horse. It’s the little things that can end up making a difference and this is one of them. 

Drink more water and stay hydrated

Drinking enough water. Just like your horse needs to be in optimal shape, so do you. Drinking water will give your brain clarity, it will help you to not cramp which wouldn’t be a great thing when you are jumping on the horse, and it will just help you to stay in peak physical shape. Make sure that you are drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day. If you are training a lot more or it is the summer, you will want to be drinking even more than that. 

Have a good and clear mindset prior to and during

Going in with a great mindset is critical. Your mindset will help give you the confidence to with the competition. It in many cases is the difference between the person that wins and the person that comes in last. Although you don’t want to be overconfident and understand that anything can happen, at the end of the day you want to believe in the training that you have done and your horse in order to win it all.  

Having equipment that works for YOU

What types of equipment will work best for you? Is it the type that allows you to do something specific? Is it the type that fits you perfectly? There are so many different reasons why one piece of equipment will be better than another person. Make sure that you read reviews and look into the quality of the equipment that is being sold. This will help you make your final decision and will help you understand the products that you may be about to purchase. If you have other friends in the community, you may also want to ask them for their pieces of advice. 

Understand as much about the sport as you can. This can make a huge difference. What is one piece of equipment for? What has one athlete done in the past that made a huge difference? What has one person perfected that you can learn from? Seeing what has worked and what has not for other athletes will help you in becoming better yourself. 

Watch yourself on videotape and make corrections. 

Did you know that being a great athlete means making corrections? One of the best things that you can be doing is documenting your progress and even videotaping what is going on. This will help you to see what you could be making improvements on. Just like we talked about, you want to be able to understand the sport, learn from others, and make adjustments accordingly. By videotaping yourself you are able to do just that. 

As you can see, there is so much that can go into the sport of horses and horse racing. Not only finding what will work for you is so important but finding how you can utilize your equipment to the best it can be and being excited about it is so important too. We hope that you liked this overall look at horse racing, preparing yourself for it, as well as Swedish V75 trotting. We wish you or your child the best of luck!
