"Glossary of the Terms and Definitions and of Processes Associated with Equitation, Equitation Science"
by Paul McGreevy and Andrew McLean reproduced with permission.
A posture characteristic of a hyper-reactive ridden horse exhibiting conflict behaviour in which the horse attempts to escape the aversive situation by raising its head, quickening its pace, shortening its neck and stride and bracing its back, which becomes dorsally concave. The horse thus assumes a posture appropriate for running and therefore does not show impulsion.
