Preview: Conformation Secrets That Keep Your Horse Sound With Bob Cunningham
Bob Cunningham is one of the most trusted horse conformation experts in the performance horse business. In these three very informative videos, he shares his knowledge on what to look for when trying to buy your next champion!
Bob assesses a yearling filly, explaining key issues such as: balance, shoulder angle, eyes, pasterns, hip angles, chest size and so much more.
Bob assesses a yearling stud and points out that this colt may have suspensory issues because of the way his tendons tie into his knees. He also talks about why a horse that walks wide behind may not be able to clear the rib cage with his stifle because of the angle of his hocks.
Bob assesses another stud colt that is a little high in the hindquarter but has good inside muscle that may help eliminate his weakness of being downhill. He also shows you where the growth plates are on a horse, so you can try and predict what this horse will look like in a year's time.
