Impulsion is the fourth step of the dressage training scale and is fundamental in the training of every horse. Impulsion in dressage describes the powerful thrust from the hindquarters that propels the horse forward.

In practice, a horse moving with impulsion will reach deep under his center of gravity with his hind legs.
