Word of the Day: Accordian Effect

Accordion effect- shortening of the top line: from the tips of the ears, to the neck, through the back along the hindquarters and into the horse's hocks.  This ceates a stiff and resistant movement similar to that of a needle moving in a sewing machine; movement has a more up and down action rather than stretching forward in a relaxed manner.  The horse is lacking a "forward thinking" mentality the his entire body is scrunched up similar to that of an accordian rather than stretched out and relaxed.
