Re: [RC] getting the horse fit - Heidi Smith

Yep, I think conformation is the major factor here. And the interesting
thing is this ties into the "fast walk" thread because the very
conformation that predisposes a horse to a fast, driving walk is the
seems to be the same that predisposes it to being a good balanced horse
going downhills. So again, it at least from my experience it all starts
with a good walk.

Ditto my own experiences, Truman.  My "natural downhill" families have also
been the ones that come "right out of the box" so to speak with a good
overreach at the walk and able to motor right along.  And needless to say, I
value them in my breeding program!
