This was another challenge from one of my photo references. The pose was not what you usually see in a painting, with the legs outstretched such as Degas's "False Start". Some poses lend themselves to convey action and grace better than others. This does not say grace, it almost seems like the horse is about to stumble. My sister had a horse like that and we nicknamed the horse "Trip". Luckily for my sister the horse always managed to stay upright.
