Toe first landing to heel first landing

These are stills taken from Rose's footage which is up here: Like most horses when they arrive here for rehab, Rose was landing toe first and monitoring how feet are loading and landing is a critical part of rehabilitation. 
I would expect her landing to improve still further over the next few months but she has made really good progress. 

These stills are from Teddy's footage: Like Rose he has been here over 12 weeks and there is a clear improvement in how he is landing.  

You can also see that the effect of a heel first landing is automatically to increase stride length. A toe first landing conversely will always mean a shortened stride.
