Under the skin

See how the horse’s bones move.

A high speed recording of a horse with a skeleton painted on it, showing the gaits walk, trot and canter. Centered Riding instructor (among other things) Susan E. Harris recently was in the Netherlands to explain how the bones and the muscles of a horse move and how they are connected.

The trot/canter transition is amazing and I think that if I watch this video a dozen times over I may just have a better understanding of movement ~ what I am looking for from the ground and under the saddle.  Well worth a watch.

See ya!
