1. Step 1: Benefits

    A saddle fit is a key factor required for you to be comfortable to sit on horseback.
    A proper rest also help improve the running of the horses, which are always in the ready position.
    Saddle fit will not interfere with the natural movements of animals and the most important thing is to evenly distribute the weight of the rider. It is useful in preventing the pain, rubbing, damage nerves, crooked back, lame leg and spinal pain caused by horse riding. Step 2: You will need - Select a peace - small, medium or large. - A tape measure Step 3: Place the saddle in place

    First, remove the towel or saddle cloths. Never put saddle on a horse when there is something at the bottom. Force the horse to stand on an equal ground. Then gently put a little rest at the horse on the neck. Slowly bring the yen slid back, adjust to fit a horse behind its shoulder blades. For most horses, shoulder blade like a large tumor emergence in the junction between the neck and back. Step 4: Determine the width

    Consider the saddle from behind or in front. If set correctly, you can see the light at the bottom of the saddle or groove along the saddle. When placed his hand on the saddle apple - the arc-shaped knob in front, have enough space for 3-4 fingers. Step 5: Consider seats

    Horizontal horseback, seats to form a horizontal line. When viewed from the front, the horse saddle must fit around the shoulder. Step 6: Determine the length

    Saddle sitting try to use. In the part under apple saddle, you can put just a hand in the arch width in front and one hand in front erect and back rest. If the saddle is too long, it will put pressure on the lower back, making the horse sore. Step 7: Measure the saddle

    Using a tape measure, measure from the center of the tail erect in the back yen to key points in the front. Basic rules generally apply saddle for children under 40 cm, saddle adult over 45cm long. Step 8: Try yen

    Try by setting up a horse saddle and riding. First, you need to tighten the belt. Loose motion is not saddle when riding, small trot or gallop. Peace must always be in contact with the skin horse, giving the rider comfort. However, the saddle must be cared for like our shoes, for no fungus on horseback and in the ass rider.

    The equestrian statue of St. George slaying the dragon, one of jewels of Gothic art, is perhaps the first equestrian statue in Czech lands to be erected outdoors in a public place.
    On 3rd Prague Castle Courtyard you can not miss the Gothic equestrian statue of St. George slaying the dragon. This statue, nowadays a part of fountain, is perhaps the first equestrian statue in Czech lands to be erected outdoors in a public place.
    The bronze statue, whose original is in the National Gallery, was cast in 1373 by the iron founders George and Martin of Cluj. It is considered probably the oldest surviving, free-standing statue in Bohemia sited in the open air. Gothic statues are normally connected to walls of cathedrals and monasteries, forming only an addition to the decoration and frequently not even finished at the back. The statue of St George however was regarded as a work of art in its own right, with its own merit and therefore worthy of being sited independently. So far it is not known where its precise location was originally, but during great rebuiding of the Castle by architect Josip Plecnik (1920-1934) it was placed here as a part of newly constitued fountain.

    Roman soldier from Syria Palaestina and a priest in the Guard of Diocletian, one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. He is immortalized in the tale of Saint George and the Dragon.
    The sculpture cannot be classified as an equestrian monument. It depicts the culminating moment of the St George legend of Jacobus de Voragine, when the saint on horseback strikes the dragon to the ground with his lance, so that the princess can then lead it off, attached to her belt, to the liberated city. The composition is defined by the main vertical axis, represented by the (lost) lance, around which the horse, rider and dragon turn. Among medieval monuments, it is the only surviving execution of this motif in a large, three-dimensional bronze work. The motif, with its dynamic, revolving composition, is frequently found in paintings and reliefs. Aside from reliefs and small statues, author draws attention to the closest analogy to the Prague sculpture: the illusive painting of a St George sculpture on a bracket, executed by Giovannino dei Grassi on the jamb of the northern sacristy in the Milan cathedral in 1395.
    On that occasion, Giangaleazzo was elevated to a dukedom by Václav IV, King of Bohemia and of the Romans (or rather, by his plenipotentiary Benes of Choustník). Even if, in the future, the court at which the Prague sculpture was made is identified, along with the person who commissioned it and the person who designed the model (including confirmation of the role of the brothers of Cluj), even if the journey of the sculpture to Prague is reconstructed, the work will remain a testimony to the inspiring influence of the northern Italian milieu.

    There’s always something special in the air every time we get across a statue of St. George slaying the dragon. Its compositions are some of the most dynamic, alive, and tense. They inspire us with his heroism, determination, and will to save the people from that bad dragon.
    We feel at ease while realizing again that evil gets his divine retribution. But there is a statue of Saint George that tells us even more, and that is the “St. George Slaying the Dragon” statue from Prague’s National Gallery.
    This old and small gothic statue is the first known equestrian statue that wasn’t linked to a particular building and that decorated an open space. It was cast in 1373 by two Romanian sculptors from Cluj, Martin and George, at the order of King Charles IV, on marrying his son, Sigismund of Luxemburg, with Mary of Anjou, daughter of the Hungarian king, Louis the Great.
