HQC Quick Quiz answer:
The answer to last month's Horsemanship Quiz Challenge Quick Quiz was " camped out," because it is not a flaw that can be found on a horse's front legs. Eighty percent of our members who answered the question got it correct!

Camped out is when the hind legs are set behind the plumb line that runs from the point of the buttock through the point of the hock, down the back of the cannon bone and to the back of the heel bulbs. The other choices, pigeon toed and club footed, were flaws that can be found on a horse's front legs.

Learn more by studying the HQC Study Guide, and when you're ready, register to participate in the 2018 Horsemanship Quiz Challenge, presented by The Plaid Horse!
