How can the Giddy Up help your horse’s forward motion?

“Used for encouraging forward motion. For a video guide on using the Giddy Up See Below  click here

Have you ever … gone out on a horse that suddenly develops the uncanny ability to grow roots and refuses to move?

How can you gain forward momentum in a horse that naps, rears, plants or just needs a bit more oomph?  It’s quite likely someone has already tried a whip but the result has been the horse has kicked out, bucked, swerved to one side or ‘curled up’ – leaving the rider helpless.

You’ll be happy to know there is a pain free, more effective way than a whip – get yourself a Giddy-Up Rope!

The “Giddy Up Rope” is constructed with soft nylon fibres braided into a thick rope, tasselled on the end with a loop on the other end to fit over the wrist.  It gives visual and auditory cues to set the horse into motion. From the horse’s point of view it’s so quick from one side to the other that he makes the obvious decision – go straight ahead.

When your horse stops or slows down, make sure you are sitting securely and be sure the horse’s head is free so he can move forward.

Here’s the plan; you can smack it across your shoulders in a one/two motion. If that doesn’t work you can go over each side one/two on your boot. If that doesn’t work go for a one/two motion on either side, behind your boot, actually touching the horse.

A fraction before you use the Giddy Up make a clicking noise and soon you’ll be able to phase out the Giddy Up and just use the clicking noise (no equipment needed for that bit) and soon you can get some more forward propulsion from the click alone.

When he goes forward – let him go forwards!  Don’t suddenly pull him back!

Giddy Up Feedback:

“Further progress on second schooling session with Giddy Up rope- showed Tommy the rope before I mounted and instead of our 5 minute battle squashing me against fence and napping into corners before whipping him into trot he decided to trot without me asking as soon I was on board!! Such easy transitions too I couldn’t believe I was riding the same horse. I even asked the stable girls if he had been given someone else’s high energy dinner by mistake! Can’t describe how happy I am.” Sally

    I use a giddy up rope with my cob as he has been known to plant himself – particularly if we’re riding past a tasty looking patch of grass. I have never been comfortable using a stick or riding crop and have found the giddy up rope a great back up to my leg and voice aid. I now rarely need to use it but take it out hacking- just in case.

    Love my giddy-up, it’s so light, soft and easy to carry/ use. I carried it on my welshie who needed a little more encouragement forward at times. I didn’t even need to use on him as using it on me whilst riding and teaching was enough for the forward movement. Also as its so soft, he didn’t mind it laying down his shoulder whilst not in ‘use’. He now goes forward on voice command so no longer needed. Perfect training aid and highly recommend for those that need that extra encouragement, thanks Caroline 😊
