    Default Skeleton of Good Hind End (Spinoff)

    Does anyone have a good, simple schematic of the skeletal angles of bones in the hind end that make for good dressage movements? I know the length of various bones is critical also.

    I've seen great articles on conformation but a simple visual would be so much better.

    Check out this month's (and the last few months') issues of Equus magazine. Dr. Deb Bennett is doing an in-depth conformation study where she takes pictures of horses, draws out how it looks currently, then moves the angles to make them more "ideal"...all in line drawings of the hindquarters (with angles marked out and explanations of the changes needed and why). The last couple of months have been about "sickle hocks"...what they are, why they can indicate weakness, etc.
