These two drawings show the difference between a good and bad extended trot. The horse on the left is extending hind and front legs equally, while the horse on the right is tight in his back, and heavy on his forehand. His hind leg does not match his front leg reach, and his shoulders are low and not free like the horse on the left - hence the toe flipping. What other differences do you notice between the 2 drawings? (Click on Discussion Title above (in blue) to read this educational discussion)
