    It's more than just a training stance. the

    - hip throw,
    - shoulder throw,
    - embracing throw,
    - ...

    are all built on a correct "horse stance". The horse stance, bow-arrow stance, and golden rooster stance are the 3 major stances used in the throwing art.

    + 1 most people don't understand that these postures work both statically and dynamically. The more structurally and mechanically accurate the posture is, the greater effectiveness or efficiency. Form and function are two sides of the same coin. If your form sucks, then your fuction is going to suck. There are a few pretty accurate sciences that will substantiate all this.

    I'd rather take advice from someone who knows how to use it and not just "train" it.

    The first video only shows some evidence of knowing how to sell it, but not train it or use it.

    Should the horse be

    - parallel,
    - outward, or
    - inward?

    If you apply a shoulder throw. At the end of you throw, both of your heels will come off the ground. You will stand on your toes (ball of your feet). Will you have better balance if your feet distance

    - remain unchanged (parallel),
    - increased (outward)? or
    - decreased (inward)?

    Which one will give your the best forward "spring" from your horse stance?

    theres no such thing as correct feet position in horse stance. you need to change the feet position to continue to progress.

    What are you referring to here? War palm the fairly recently created form that is done in some Hung Gar lineages (no specific stance is associated with this form that I am aware of), or an actual stance called War Palm Horse Stance?
