CROOKEDNESS – Aspects of crookedness:

  1. Misalignment of the horse’s body parts from tail to poll (e.g. popped shoulder or twisted neck).
  2. On straight or curved lines, lack of parallelism of the horse’s longitudinal axis to the line of travel (, e.g., haunches left or right of centerline or circle line).
  3. In two track/lateral work, lack of parallelism of the horse’s longitudinal axis to the line of reference (e.g., haunches leading or trailing in leg yielding).
  4. Lack of directness of line of travel – the horse deviating or wandering left &/or right of the desired path of travel (e.g., as in weaving).
