It's not so much about her head being down but more that when he head is down the rest of her body is in frame. There is a difference between just plotting along and placing their feet. Think about humans....you can drag your feet when you jog or you can pick them up and place them where they need to go -- which is the better idea? Plus, since she will be carrying a rider she needs to know where to place her feet so that she doesn't trip while just plotting along. Horses will travel with their necks low naturally as well. A horse that has its head low is relaxed...a horse that has its neck and head high and erect is anxious/nervous.
