The muscular work does not pull the neck out of the shoulders as suggested in the telescopic rhetoric. Instead, upper and lower neck muscles are mainly focused on flexing or straightening, bending laterally, as well as lifting or lowering the neck. The main neck muscles involved in the lowering of the neck are the splenius and the semi spinalis capitis.
The semispinalis capitis muscle does have a tendon in the middle and this tendon elongates as the neck lowers. The work of the muscle cells is complex but more in the sense that within the same muscle, some muscle fibers are working concentric while other are working in isometric hold. Muscle cells working in isometric hold can change their work into eccentric contraction when an outside element such as lowering of the neck is stimulating elongation.
Eccentric contractions are extremely powerful. In his study R. Payne refers to eccentric contraction as being capable to absorb 15 times more energy than concentric contraction. In another study, Karen Gellman say that the power of the cell's contraction almost double. The author induces then an interesting thought.
Gellman regards the power of eccentric contractions as a protection mechanism preventing the muscles cells from becoming ripped by excessive elongation. The results of scientific studies are directly influenced by the specific angle of the investigative technique. If the purpose of studying a study is to better train the horse, one needs to read the whole procedure, including the material and methods used for the experiment.
The ghosts are only reading the first lines until they find a word or a line fitting their opinion. If we find a single piece of evidence, then we are done. We have a reason we can trot out to support our belief. Eccentric contraction is often referred to as active stretching. The success of any rehabilitation relies on the rider's capacity to understand the horse's evolution and to adjust. The concept that the horse's gait can actually be changed to rehab or prevent injury is almost completely foreign to veterinarian and most trainers.
It turns out that the ability to correct kinematics abnormalities inducing lameness is one of the most efficient modern therapies. It all started in the late seventies when James Rooney investigated the kinematics abnormalities leading to injuries. The pathologist found out that if not corrected, a mild kinematics abnormality is likely, over a period of time, to create lesion. At first, the thought that instead of being the main cause of lameness, the rider's equitation could address and correct the kinematics abnormalities inducing injuries was pertinent.
The pertinence turned into revolution when, applying modern science for a better equitation, the science of motion uncovered the capacity to correct limbs kinematics abnormalities through specific coordination of the horse's vertebral column mechanism. In humans, back problems are the leading cause of disability. As well, in equine, back muscles' imbalance and other dysfunctions are the leading cause of limbs kinematics abnormalities and consequent injuries.
We reeducate multiple cases of navicular syndrome correcting the vertebral column mechanism inducing the limbs kinematics abnormalities causing excessive pressure between the distal sesamoid navicular bone and the deep digital flexor tendon. The remodeling process was then able to partially or fully restore soundness. Likewise, the last four cases of kissing spine have been resolved identifying the vertebral column imbalance causing impingement of the dorsal spines.
Beside invasive surgery, nothing can be done about the fact that the dorsal spines are inherently too close. What can be done is teaching to the horse a vertebral column coordination avoiding contact of the dorsal spines. The art of rehabilitation after injury is just becoming a serious field of study The art of rehabilitation after injuries as well as the art of preventing injuries, demands equitation based on actual knowledge of the equine physiology. Great horsemen prepare efficiently the horse's physique for the performance.http://thearciniega.com/blog/wp-includes/qoraruvu/3025.php
This of course markedly reduces the rate of injuries. However, competitions are demanding and when injury occurs, great horsemen use the same sophisticated equitation to correct the vertebral column dysfunction inducing the limbs kinematics abnormalities causing injuries. Rehabilitation through motion is rapidly gaining momentum. We have created a comprehensive program of education. Providing the science behind riding and training techniques is the trademark of Jean Luc's teaching. Clinics are successful because Jean Luc teaches how to adapt riding skills and knowledge to the horse's peculiar needs.
This distinguishes Jean Luc method from the usual submitting the horse to the system. A program needed to be created to go one step further, allowing riders, trainers and therapists to fully comprehend how the practical application of most advanced equine research studies can further horses' performances and restore soundness. Along the years, we will continue this program exploring new subjects and returning sometimes to the most interesting topics.
Dip ACVP, will be our guest speaker, sharing with us pertinent observations made in the necropsy room in relation to lateral bending and transversal rotations of the horse's vertebral column. Centuries later, Jean Marie Denoix demonstrated that lateral bending was always associated with a movement of transversal rotation.
Betsy's talk will introduce the unique perspective of verifying through manipulations in the necropsy room the veracity of advanced theories. A talented rider with a strong classical and European culture, he learned in Spain, England and now in the US. Adam is training and selling competition horses. One of his horses in training is the stallion Moorpark Image Rid. Adam and his mare Misty came to improve their skills. The conversation started in the barn while tacking up the horse. Adam was describing his impressions, successes and difficulties.
Jean Luc was asking questions. In the training ring, Jean Luc observed the mare, pointing out details in the gaits that suggested an imbalance between right and left transversal rotation of the mare's thoracic spine. Jean Luc explained the phenomenon of transversal rotation and they worked together underlining the importance of the horse's natural cadence and the condition that would allow the shoulder in to correct the mare's back muscle imbalance.

Back in the class room, Jean Luc manipulated the vertebral column specimen and selected computer animations that clearly explained the mare's issue. When I brought the second drink they were having a very technical but very friendly discussion. In fact, I stayed some time with them listening to their very interesting exchanges" Helyn. The next session in the training ring demonstrated the efficiency of the approach. Having clearly in mind the picture of the proper coordination between lateral bending and transversal rotation, Adam had greater ease in properly interpreting his mare's reaction and providing appropriate insights.
No I am not a Kangaroo; I am a horse.
Jean Luc Cornille
I guess, they knew that in Australia, a Kangaroo is named a boomer and found appropriated to give such name because I was quite often standing on my rear legs boxing with my front legs. What they obviously did not know is that boomer is the name for a male Kangaroo. A female is a flyer. I would not mind to be name flyer; although, I did not fly very fast on the race track.
I heard that Chazot and I might be reunited, and if the project turns into reality they will rename me "Boomerang" in allusion to the fact that I will come back. I know that I am his mother and not his grand-mother, but he was a very "grand" son. At least his father was not a syringe. Since I am a thoroughbred, Chazot's conception was live breeding.
I have good memories of his father. He was cute, athletic, and elegant with good manners. I started to hate Chazot's father when the baby grew too large for my womb.

At the least, since I am only 16,2, I was able to blame his father for my baby's size. I also blamed his father for the fact that my baby tried to rear boxing with his front legs in my womb. However, I knew deep under that, considering my name, I might be responsible for that. I remember that soon after birth, he stood unstable on his very long legs and walked toward the humans watching.
He always has been people oriented.

Later, stories came about him being extremely violent and difficult. I can only imagine what they did to him. He was exuberant with a strong will but he was a kind child. I remember watching him nursing. He was too tall and was taking incredible postures to reach my udders. Sometime, he was separating the forelegs way apart.
Waspish Ghosts III
Other times, he was crossing the front legs. I was hoping that considering his size they would have the intelligence to not try to race him on the race track. Instead, they should try dressage; after all, he already knows how to cross the legs. Then, after nursing, he was sprinting around me bouncing and jumping very high. The term mass makes suggested a cancer issue, but the author was not concerned at all. The self confidence of the ghosts is an appalling phenomenon. This woman wrote a book about two muscles that do not exist. Not for one second would she question the accuracy of her theory.
Waspish Ghosts III
If the muscles do not exist, they must be two masses. However, you might learn about the complex meanders of human psychology. The instant a ghost is cornered, by a pertinent response or question, the ghost reformulates his or her theory.

If the energy flow is not swinging, it is the force that is swinging and so on. Usually, at the end of futile exchanges comes the pedestal syndrome. If such classic author say so, it must be true. Among the initial drafts of the pyramid of training was the thought; impulsion is a race horse with a relaxed back. Physiologically, the thought is a plain contradiction. If the back muscle were to relax, the horse could not sustain the same speed. However, as irrational the concept is, the concept is applied on a daily basis.
