Details regarding the Taekwondo Horse Stance

According to the Kukkiwon World Taekwondo Headquarters, the Taekwondo horse or horse riding stance is a "stance where both feet are parallel, both legs slightly bent with the width of two-one foot between them. When looking down at the knees of both legs which are bent, they should be on the same line with the ends of feet. The trunk and both knees and shins should be upright. The trunk, knees and shins are in the upright position. When the ends of feet are turned inward, it is anjjong-juchum-seogi (Inward Riding Stance). When one foot is one step forward, it is ap-juchum-seogi (Forward Riding Stance). When one foot is diagonally forward, then it is called mo-juchum-seogi (Diagonal Riding Stance)."
