[RC] Great video of boots! - Spottedracer

I must really thank Karen for all of her insight and knowledge concerning the 
biomechanics of the horse's strides. As well as the biomechanical stresses and 
changes that adding weight to their hooves will cause! 

I hope she doesn't mind, but I really think that everyone should view this 
video link she sent me.. Go back and forth between the video of the barefoot 
horse - then to each type of boot.. Really concentrate on it's stridelength 
changes against the background fence, changes in 'lift' of it's strides and any 
other subtle changes in it's frame and carriage.

I've noted slight changes that seem to be more pronounced with certain boots. 
Since I'm no expert, I'd like to see if other experienced horsemen note these 
same changes.


Does anyone have a link for Lee Ziegler? I'd like the opinion of an expert on 
gaited horses as well...

Thanks in advance!!!
