Catching up - Ruby and more on landings

A quick couple of stills from Ruby's footage, which is posted below. She arrived with decent feet but a less-than-perfect landing, as you can see from the still above; her initial photos are here.
Over the last few weeks her feet have improved and I posted updated photos here - at this stage she wasn't landing heel first but was confident on tough surfaces and working well in the school.

Its great to see her really stretching out now - unfortunately the stills don't really show this but you can see it on the footage. The contrasting angle of the limb in the 2 photos is interesting too - surely if anyone is in any doubt about how horses should land the better extension and landing in the lower photo is a clincher?!
