💁 Let's Talk... How head position affect affects gait and balance
Here's a really good example of why we want their head down and balanced while they work in the aquatred. It's all about core function. When he get their head up high, their back hollows out and they loose that driving power in the hind end. So you end up with a horse that has overbuilt muscle in front, because imbalance makes them weak behind. You'll notice in the video, when I push this mare's head higher, she gets strung out and weak behind and loses her stride and balance.
Our goal is to keep them balanced as best we can every session in the tread. This helps retrain that core for an all around stronger horse.
