Hello Heidi and others,
sorry, but if a horse going downhill and after that the horse is sore in
the hindleg, isn't that way of going downhill the right one? Or
shouldn't this horse better use more "braking-power" from his frontlegs?
If there is no damage in the front, but in the back, why not
distributing the force more equal?
Or am I completely on the wrong run here?
