I know Ross, the OP, from somewhere else. Just a little background and I'll be brief; he's written a lot of articles and has run things by me for other disciplines other than racing...which is his niche. He looks at the "inside" of the horse, the skeletal stucture and the mechanics of that structure as it relates to performance. MOST of us look at the outside instead, without thinking about the actual bone structure and angles underneath. That is what Ross specializes in...but he has branched out into the other disciplines. I've given him insight into what a person looks for in a cutter, a reiner, an HUS horse, a WP horse, a Dressage horse and so on when it comes to "form to function". There IS a difference in all of them and Ross has looked for guidance in the discipline outside his realm. He comes at conformation in a strictly bio-mechanic eye based in horse racing, a more scientific view from what the rest of us look at. He's learning outside of his realm, and who can fault him for wanting to learn more. We all know that the horse industry changes constantly in disciplines and us humans have "tweaked" conformation to suit our needs.
