How to use your EQUICUBE
How you hold the equicube is very important:
The cube is held in front of you in the saddle and just high enough so it does not touch your horse
- Relax your shoulders and let them drop down into their sockets
- Your upper arms should drape down your sides staying close to your sides at all times
- The weight of the cube should be supported in your back, engaging your latissimusdorsi muscle
Position the Equicube
- Place cube in hands with logo facing you.
- Pick up your reins and add the handle of the cube on top with thumbs positioned as seen in Figure.A
- If the cube does not remain level ( flat surface parallel to the arena floor) proper core engagement is not achieved
Improper Rein and Hand Position
- When held incorrectly increased tension in hand and forearm decreases recruitment of the core muscles Figures: B,C,D
- All pictures show common errors while riding with the cube
Now that you have the cube level
- Shorten the reins so you feel you have contact with the bit in your horses mouth.
- The reins may have to be shorter than normal because of your hand position.
- As you begin to move, the top flat surface of the Equicube should remain level at all times and in all gaits.
- Make sure it is always pointed in the direction you are going.
- With your elbows staying down at your sides move the cube in the direction you want to go, by turning your torso.
- In each picture below you can see the cube moving in the direction you want the horse to go.
- In all gaits and in all movements this rule remains the same
- In each of these photos the cube remains level and pointed in the direction of where the horses shoulders need to travel
