SACCADE. A jerk more or less violent, given by the horseman to the horse, in palling or twitching the reins of the bridle on a sudden, and with one pull, and that when a horse lies heavy upon the band, or obstinately arms himself. This is a correction used to make a horse carry well, but it ought to be used discreetly, and but seldom.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
