Three reasons can explain why your horse isn’t doing what you want him to do: 1. He doesn’t understand what you want; 2. He understands but he doesn’t want to do it and 3. He understands and wants to do it, but he can’t. In this book, Dr Nancy S. Loving DVM addresses the last reason – physical capabilities. Ie., confirmation points and the effects they have on performance.
Illustrated with hundreds of photographs by Bob Langrish, the book describes 100+ common conformation points in many breeds of horses and shows you how to identify these points in your own horse. The performance consequences of each conformation point are discussed. Sports and activities that are affected by these points are pointed out.
Some conformation points are inherited and others are acquired. But many faults can be overcome or relieved through training and/or aids. These aids and training techniques are discussed for each point.
