I am not sure if this is in the right place...
I am working towards my BHS Stage 3. I need to have a good knowledge of conformation.
I already have proportions, ideal conformation and some examples of bad conformation and their common names.
Common conformation faults I already have are ewe neck, swan neck, back at the knee, over at the knee, roach back, sway back, cow hocked, sickle hocked, splayed feet. What else have I missed?
I also need to be aware of how conformation affects the action of the horse. So, for example, what "cow hocked" will do to a horses action, or what "over at the knee" will do to a horses action. Not only their action, but overall health and soundness too. So basically what I am looking for, is an article/website that provides a list of conformation faults, with the bad effects it has on a horses action.
Can anyone help?
