Exactly which angle you are measuring when you talk about the pelvic angle,and how can I find the exact spots on my horse to measure them?
Can you work from the actual horse, or would the angle be easier to measure in a still picture as you guys have in the forum?

Hi Tammy, Yes you can do this on your own horse and can be fun to do while Working with finding all the anlges of your horse.
on a live horse I use sticky dots . Placing one at the :
point of hip
point of pelvis
point of shoulder
I then use fine line tape and tape a straight line from point of pelvis to point of hip. Then make another straight line with the tape from point of pelvis to the point of shoulder. then using a protractor placed in home position being at the point of pelvis you will find the angle between the two staight lines you have made on your horse. This with give you the angle of pelvis.

It helps first to find these points on a live horse -- they may be hard to spot in a photo. Go feel your horse! Seriously, to find the point of the hip (which is also the front of the pelvis) run your hand along the horse's flank, above where the hair whorls, until you can feel a hard knob -- that is the "hip bone". Use a sticky tape or scruff up the hair over this point. Then, run your hand along his buttock, starting just below the root of the tail, until you feel another hard knob --that will be the back of the pelvis or the illium. (it may be hard to feel on a well muscled or plump horse). Again, put on a sticky tape or scruff up the hair. Next, draw a line in the hair between these two points. Draw another line parallel to the ground, bisecting the illium. The angle between that line and the hip/illium line is the pelvic angle. If you want to get really technical and accurate, take a picture of your horse with his "marks" on -- standing with his hind cannons vertical. Then dig out your old high school protractor (or find a kid who has one) and figure out the angle of the pelvis.
