    I love how much their feet seem to "wiggle" in slow-mo pretty cool

    I love to see some of the same movements with a barefoot horse.

    And (scary) a stacked horse.

    Thanks! Very cool. Very interesting the way the lower leg acts as SUCH a shock absorber.

    That was really neat, and thank you for posting it! I do wish they had not cut so many of the shots off just at impact, though -- I would've like to have seen the full breakover and lift to the next stride for pretty much all of them, not just a few.

    Super cool. Reminds me of the video I saw analyzing a person walking, running, jumping, etc in slow motion. Amazing how much shock our limbs absorb.

    People in the comments said the horses were in pain because of the toe first landing, and that the shoes are restricting the movement, any of that true?

    Wow that was cool. Amazing to see it slow motion and to see how much shock those feet absorb.

    Just ignore the dim-witted comments.

    Actually a toe first landing does indicate heel pain (sometimes). Shoes certainly can restrict movement if not done correctly, but so can a bad trim, ill-fitting tack, a bad rider, etc...

    In the context of the video, the toe-first landing comments are absurd. So are the "restrictive shoe" comments for that matter

    I thought it was pretty amazing too - it's left me even more awed by what horses do for us. It's also made me wonder just how much 'technology' has been incorporated into horse shoeing. Landing on steel or aluminum can't be great for shock absorption.
