BALOTADES. The leaps of a horse, on a straight line, made in such a manner, that when his fore feet are in the air he shows nothing but the shoes of his hinder feet, without yerking out.—When a horse works at Caprioles he yerks or strikes out his hinder legs, not so in Balotades.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
