Hi everyone :)

I have read articles on Knowledge Base, but I still cannot understand some issues from "Lessons from Woody". I am a beginner and my English is not very good, so I may have misunderstood some facts.

I know that shoulders can work independently from the rest of the horse's body. But when a horse leans to the left, does it mean that he shifts his shoulders to the right (takes more weight on the left forelimb?), or shifts his whole body with hindquarters?

Under Fig. 9 there is a caption that when a horse leans to the left, muzzle will go to the left (is it because the haunches are more to the left than shoulders, and there comes the righting reflex?). But on page 13 there is: "Most horses seem to prefer to lean to the right. This creates ... a tendency for the horse to carry its head and haunches to the left." So when the horse moves his head to the left, while leaning on left or right?

Warm regards
Ola

Ola, I think the simplest way for you to get straightened out on your questions is to do the following:

1. Download the papers you are trying to understand so that they are printed on paper.

2. Take the papers to someone who reads and speaks English very well, and have them translate them to you. They might be able to read the papers out loud to you.

3. When you have heard an accurate translation, your grasp of what I am saying should improve -- because your own understanding from trying to read the papers yourself is very inaccurate.

It is useless for me here to try to fix misunderstandings that come from your own inability to read or understand English. So go find a friend to help you, and then you can come back with questions afterwards, if you still have any. Thank you for putting so much work and effort into trying to understand. It is for your horse's benefit, and for this I am grateful. -- Dr. Deb

Hi again,
Thank you for reply. Unfortunately I have no friends whose English is fabulous. I am still working hard and trying to understand :)

Anyway, I would be VERY grateful if someone could answer my questions, even on PM. It would help me to understand or give me some feedback.

Thanks again,
Ola

I'm interested in this as well - just for clarity. Good question Ola!
