Capturing the character as well as the form of these beautiful creatures was important to Chandler, who studied them in great depth to determine the replicable tells, of an animal with intention to act unpredictably. The slight angle of the head and barely detectable curve of the spine, coupled with the raising of the front let all communicate that something is about to change and equestrians throughout the world will appreciate the need to reign this creature in. The location of the feet on angular panels implicitly communicates forward movement and this potential. The intention is evident.
