Science Fair Project oblige?
my daughter is in 8th gr. and needs a topic for her science fair project. please, something that doesn't bring a long time to do, and is reasonable. We have thought the "which saddle pad is cooler" one and another one someone else suggested but we inevitability something else. AND PLEASE, NO CRITICIZING ANSWERS. it's either you have an idea or you don't. THAT SIMPLE!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Fed... , the "new" seat is still used today, you could say why this is better and the "old" style was bad for the horse.
God Luck with the project!
You get a bunch of horses, I had like 6, and win their heights (preferably a large range surrounded by heights, like 14.2 to 16.2 or something).
It helps closely if you have an arena. Pick out two points, like start at one cone and stop at another. Have the horses canter the length between the two points. Count how many strides they take.
(I went to a lesson barn to do this and the ancestors taking lessons gladly did this for me, along with letting me guess their horses.)
Then you just compare the horses' heights to the number of strides they take. Obviously the taller horses took smaller amount strides and the ponies took more, but it's very easy to chart.
It's simple and only took a morning to do. And it got me a first place! Hope this helps get your thinking going, good luck!
"Does a horse's stride length effect it's take off distance on a jump?"
I get a B+ :P
2. Which water buckets do horses prefer - plastic or metal?
3. How around the efficiency of a horse's digestive system?
4.You can feed two horses that are about matching height and weight different amounts OR brands of food and see how effects their performance.
Line up buckets full of different treats and use like 10 horses, after respectively time switch the buckets around so its not just due to positioning
Are horses spooky of abiding colours?
Which saddle pad offers more support?
Which type of jump is the hardest to submerge?
Which type of jump is the easiest to jump?
Do treats affect behavior?
Angles contained by the jumps?
Are horses colorblind?
how bout which saddle wipe is cleaner
