I'd definitely wrap her and discuss the details with your farrier. Polo wraps are great. Conformation flaws don't necessarily imply the horse can't be ridden, some allowances (wraps) may have to be made but they're not life threatening no matter what fugly says

How can i been so dumb not to notice that... grrrr so can she be ridden ? what is she limited too ?
I couldn't say what she may be limited to because I'm not that smert.. ;) But, I would suggest using bell boots and/or leg boots of some kind if she's whacking herself. Might help to see some conformation shots of the whole horse as well. Age? And maybe even some hoof trim pics in case her trim is causing it.

She has a very narrow base behind, so it's not surprising that she clips herself every so often. You can get splint boots, hind boots and/or bell boots (depending on where she's clipping) to prevent injury, but it's how she's built.

I'd look up toed out as that's what I believe it is called. Never heard swayed regarding hoof/legs, just backs. ;)

She's toed out obviously, if we could see her hocks we could tell if she's cow-hocked. This is what cow hocks look like...

as far as the collection thing goes, just google dressage and read thru that and it'll explain collection and getting a horse on the bit, meaning in a frame.

with my gelding he didnt really have a butt and we worked on trotting for hours everywhere esp up and down hills. soon u'r horses butt will be so big it'll look like an apple! lol but that's a good thing.

Ok, I see from the video she's toed in and she's also cow-hocked. So, there are things you can do to help her like wraps and good farrier work but she will most likely always clip herself from time to time.

lacyloo, the fact that your here means you probably take better care of your horse than most. so, don't beat yourself up.

polo wraps are a good idea. you could also get hind splint boot / skid boots over at edgalemba.com

here's a direct link - https://www.edgalemba.com/combinationbootdetail.php

i think they have velcro as well
