Abstract

The aim of this study was to identify the effect of training stage, height of the obstacle and successive number of jump on young stallions' linear jumping parameters with and without rider. Investigations were based on filming of free jumping and jumping with rider during regular stallion work on the 11-month performance test. Horses jumped through the spread obstacle (doublebarre) with constant width of 90 cm and heights of 100, 110 and 120 cm. Taking-off distance, landing distance, heights of legs above obstacle and bascule of horse silhouette were measured using manual programme for video image analysis. Almost all parameters measured with and without rider were training dependent. The only parameters not affected by training were heights of hind limbs above obstacle, which were also not affected by height of obstacle in observations of more trained horses by free jumping and less trained horses with rider. Jumping parameters were not influenced by successive number of the jump by all parameters with rider and parameters of length of the jump in free jumping. On the basis of received results, it could be concluded that evaluation of jumping skills in free jumping and jumping with rider should be based on different criteria.
