Is using your calves a good way to make your horse go faster?
April 06, 2010 1:19AM
adding presure with your calves is a good way to make your horse go faster, but not all horses are trained to use the same comands, so you might want to check and see how your horse was trained, he may only go forward if you lean forward, ect.

When riding a horse do you strike the horse violently with a whip or use your calves to go faster?
It depends on the horse. I would try using your calfs first, and if that doesn't work, you TAP the horse LIGHTLY until it goes faster. Never EVER beat your horse with a whip, EVER! ---- Never strike your horse!!!! i know some one who was so firm with her horse and never tapped lightly and her horse moves its head when you try to touch its head it shys away. So always tap lightly but cluck and use your calves first!! If you want real communication, read GaWani Pony Boy's "Horse, Follow Closely". But never EVER hit your horse in a violent or abusive way! Never, ever, under any circumstance, should you beat your horse. Whips and crops are used to get the horses attention - simply tap them. Think - they can feel a fly land on their rump, so how would it feel for them to be smacked hard with a whip? Use your calves - squeeze, then tap with your calves, and then TAP behind your leg with the whip or crop. The whip should only be used for correction. Kick the horse or squeeze with your feet to gain speed. If the horse does not respond or refuses, a light whip on the hindquarters may be neccesary. But never whip violently-you may hurt the horse or anger it-and it will get cross and throw you off. Once I made the mistake of whipping a horse when going into canter and it got very upset and so did my instructor, so just use it for correction when needed. It is a good idea to always carry a whip when riding in case your mount is stubborn. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!?!?! Have you just started riding or something!??? You NEVER use a whip violently. Only when the horse is disobeying-- and you only TAP LIGHTLY. I'm sorry but seriously what is you're problem. The person asking this has to obviously know the answer. You can tell by the way the phrased it. So, to the person who asked this, honestly, use your head. Don't be an idiot.

What do you to increase to faster speed on a horse?
If you're riding a horse and you want it to go faster there are several ways to ask it to increase speed. One way is by lengthening the horse's gait - sit deeper in the saddle and give the horse a bit more rein. You can ask the horse to increase to the next gait by letting out the reins, leaning forwards and kicking gently or squeezing the horse with your legs. You can also use artificial aids ie. a whip or spurs, but the horse needs to be trained to respond to these and if used incorrectly or abusively, most horses will simply buck you off if they don't understand what you're asking. If your horse has settled into a gait and become slow and sloppy, sit up straight, maintain light contact with the horse's mouth, squeeze gently with your legs and get back into control. This is called 'collecting' the horse because it is 'bad horse manners' for the horse to be sloppy or lazy while you are riding. logically squeze with your calves and kick not to hard if they go put slack in the reins and tell them good job good boy(or girl) NEVER whack them with spurs or a crop that is animal cruelty!
What is faster a horse or a dirt bike?
both because with a horse it would depend that if it has been trained like for a race but on a average horse then a dirt bike if faster but see with a dirt bike it depends on the type of engine it has because if the engine is beat up the yes 100% would the horse beat it but if it was a good engine the yes the dirt bike would win but on average it would probably turn out to be the dirt bike would win.

Asked in Exercise, Cows and Cattle
How do you get nice calves?
Are you talking about the muscle on your lower back legs or the bovine calves, i.e., "young cows"? For the former, exercising and stretching is good, as well as toning them with lifting weights. For the latter, simply breeding a herd of good solid cows to an even better bull will get you some nice soggy calves for either the market and/or for replacements.
