"You know, I've noticed a difference in the way he carries his tail lately," my trainer said in the middle of a recent Dressage lesson.
"Yeah?" I said, "How so?"
"He carries it higher and centered now, when he used to always carry it to the left ever since I've known him. It is a lot of weight, his tail."
It's interesting, because as an extension of the spine, the tail should be centered. I wonder if he was trying to use it to counterbalance his lateral imbalance, muscle-wise. Hmm...
