For those wanting to learn about confo

Here's a blog post from an amazing woman regarding the length of hip, loin and back.

trying to use general non specific data to come up with specific numbers, IE she's full of it.
Random judgements that dont take into account muscle or fat mass to select specific points to calculate bone position ? While I guess you could look at one as short or one as long , coming up with a specific percentage ?

Not random. She works from experience (I believe she used to rehab horses) She also works from the research and publications of Dr. Deb Bennett... Unless you think she's full of it too?

Personally, I've seen this woman be far more correct (in how she predicts a horse will move and challenges presented) than any other person I've followed, and far more than any here.

Why don't you write a response post with your supported disagreements?

shes making precision measurements from approximate points and calculating specific percentages. Anyone that knows anything about math or measuring would see the flaw in her formula.
