Note the bunching up and elongating of forms, as in a rabbit taking off.

ACTION ANALYSIS-IMPACT

like o rubber ball which elongates in falling and squashes on ¡mpo.ct, so a living body will react in comparable circumstances. In his descent, the horse has thrown his head back, , his stretched forelegs are reaching, to prepare for the impact, and his body elongates in his fall. The legs are first to react, taking his weight at the first shock of his fall. His head pulls downward, and his whole body reverses as he starts his roll. The ball on the rebound elongates again^ although not as much as in the original ' fall, since it has, lost some of its momentum. Similarly, the horse in this case regains more of his normal shape as he slows down in the roll.
