RE: [RC] travelling wide - David LeBlanc

I have to second that.  IF the horse is heavy on the 
forehand, THEN the idea that there is a back issue or a hind 
limb issue is worth considering.
 But despite Kaboot, in my experience, the majority of the 
horses that travel this way are NOT heavy on the forehand, 
and in fact drop the hindquarters to engage them even 
further--which takes a very STRONG back!

At PanAm, I noticed a horse travelling wide on the trot out, and asked Mike
Tomlinson what he thought - I have one that has a little  bit of a wide gait
in the rear. He said it was great - that a lot of lamenesses come from
interference and that a horse that travels wide won't interfere. Seems like
a good point from a good source.
