Topic: Discussion about what internal straightness means, as two dimensions or as a combination of two spinal functions. Internal straightness is an important part of balance, not only for riders but especially for our horses. Straightness, which could also be called length x width, brings efficiency and ease to movement. Also discussed is how our horse can look straight while still holding a bend or rotation issue through the spine.
