USE OF BIOMECHANICAL ANALYSIS IN VAULTING RIDING
Our work focuses on comparing kinematic indices of an exercise figure – a swing, being applied as an introductory exercise in the training of compulsory set of exercises in vaulting. We compared selected kinematic indices, their performance on a horse and on a barrel simulator. Via ex post facto research with the help of substantially logical methods and computer technique we tried to find differences and connections in kinematic indices. Exercises were carried out on a barrel simulator and thereafter on a horse. The follow-up file was formed by 9 top riders from various clubs in the Czech and Slovak Republic. During the research we managed to support more significant dependence between the indices – angular dimension between vertical axis and lower limbs in maximum upper position, in hand stand and distance between hips and a wrist on a horse in motion – where r = 0,833 (p<0,01).
