Basic article
I am reading the Deb Bennett series for the 3rd time. It's getting easier, but this is a really good article by Dr Bennett posted on another site. I like the breakdown of what is good for what: http://www.mountainislandfarm.com/article.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Re: Basic article

Oh, fantastic! I skimmed it and it has some great stuff. I'll bookmark that and read it in more detail later today.

BECAUSE BOTH HAVE DOWNHILL BODY BALANCE, THE CROSS BETWEEN DRAFT AND RACE TYPES IS THE LEAST LIKELY TO PRODUCE BALANCED RIDING HORSES.

This is especially pertinent. :)

Re: Basic article

One thing they don't mention that really caught my attention were the variances in the humerous. I wouldn't have minded hearing what impact they felt it had.

Not exactly what you are asking, but since I know your involvement with TB's, I found this article fascinating - it implied to me that some "come up in the withers" which doesn't change their balance exactly, but still: http://equationsaddlery.com/wp-content/u..." onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

From what I remember, the humerus should be half the length of the scapula or longer. Or is it the placement you are referencing?

Re: Basic article

That is absolutely fascinating and definitely explains two or three phenomena I've noticed in Lace since she's been back into work. WOW!

Re: Basic article

Now I know why my trainer is constantly re-checking the saddle fit.

Some freebies (free download) that are recommended by DrDeb but not written by her:

Oh I meant the placement. The angle of it (which I guess translates to the angle of the whole shoulder).
