It is important to understand that a Horse standing still has a completely different configuration compared to when the back is lifted in motion. From the moment the first step is taken, a Horse´s body becomes a totally new set of shapes: The vertical lift between wither and croup can be as much as 5 inches / 10 centimeters. There are bulges/expansions/contractions that need to be considered, too. All of this must be accommodated when asking this sensitive animal to carry us. Even a well exercised and well muscled horse has a naturally downward curve in his back when standing still. Also, relaxed posture results in a less voluminous body than one in motion because engaging muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia requires expansion to create MOVEMENT.
