AKM (in the Manege). A horse is said to arm himself, when he presses down his head and bends his neck, so as to rest the branches of his bridle upon his counter, in order to disobey the bit mouth. A wooden ball, covered with cloth, put on his chaul, and pressing him between the jaw bones, will prevent him from bringing his head down close to his breast.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
