LIGHT - BELLIED HORSE. One that commonly has flat, narrow, and contracted sides, which makes the flank turn up like that of a greyhound. Such a horse has but a little flank, he is light-bellied, he travels and feeds but little, because he has too much mettle.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835
