Ask An Expert – Horse Riding

October 26, 2019

This week on Ask an Expert – horse riding! Welcome to Ask an Expert, the show where you
submit questions to be answered by people around the school. I’m your host, Sam Paradis. This week on Ask an Expert, Our question is
“Why do horse riders always get on the horse from the left side?” Here to answer our question is Kelsey Shynkaruk. Welcome Kelsey! Thanks for having me! So, can you help us answer our question? Yeah, so it all originates back when horses
were used for warmounts and soldiers used to wear their swords on the left side. So they had to get on from the left side,
or else they would have sat on their sword. So nowadays, do you mount horses still from
the left side or both sides? You should mount from both sides because it’s
like doing a math problem. What you do to one side, you have to do to
the other. So yeah! That’s really interesting – working both sides
of the horse, so one side doesn’t get too strong. Thank you for coming to help us out – I think
that really helped. Yeah, thank-you! That’s it for this week’s Ask An Expert,
but we’re always looking for new questions. Tweet them to @PACarlton with the hashtag
#AskAnExpert, and we’ll find someone who can answer it for you! See you next week!
