This is very true.

Within our Paint herd, I compare our two wide bodied, halter bred mares (mother/daughter) to locomotives. When you're riding full speed, those big muscled hind legs are churning and pounding the ground with drive. You can just feel the power. Our long backed, penning mare has a very smooth, long stride that just eats up the distance with no effort at all, and our leanest, short backed mare feels like she is floating along over the ground.

The horses may be toed in, which would cause the legs to swing out broader when walking. It could result in a "slinky" feeling in each step.
