Denali evaluation

I first worked on Denali this past June. He has leg length disparity syndrome and, while not actually lame, was having problems with nonclinical or nonspecific "lameness type" issues. As a young dressage horse he was unable to bend effectively in both directions and tended to hollow out his back rather than flex and round through his body.

Key responses I look for in this type of an evaluation are the willingness to lower the head and stretch the back, indications that the horse is feeling more comfortable through the body.

In subsequent shoeings he has continued to improve in his posture and his performance.

This was my first effort with this camera indoors and I apologize for the poor lighting.
