Straightness

Straightness sends impulsion directly to the horse’s center of gravity.

 
Lusitano-StraightnessStraightness sends impulsion directly to the horse’s center of gravity.   His hind and front legs are aligned and fall in the same place every time.   Even when the horse is moving sideways, the legs on each side of the body are aligned and step in the same place.   The body is centered with the head which is always raised and level.   The horse does not need to put his head down to see the ground before him.   He maintains a straight elegant stance even when it is not moving.

Lusitano-StraightnessThe horse can move sideways or backwards without changing his posture or turning its head or legs anyway away from the line he is following.   The horse maintains straightness even while turning or moving sideways.   The rider must also learn during training to remain on top of the horse’s gravity center so their movements may be even and balanced through the routines and exercises.
