I'm one of those people who loves to look at Thoroughbreds on the Canter or other re-homing websites... and I am struck by the number who show pronounced rope-walking movement behind. Some even land with the right hind landing to the left of the left hind or vice versa.
Is this likely due to very tight backs or other muscular tightness that can improve?
Does lateral work particularly change this?
Some of these horses are otherwise pretty appealing.
