Lift / Animation

These photos are samples of the "lift" and "animation" that the show ring is promoting and striving for.

Does any horse move like this naturally? Is this lift / animation derived from mechanical means?

These horses are practically hitting themselves in the elbow with their hoof! Should they wear elbow pads for protection?!?!?

Would an Icelandic Horse that was bred with this kind of lift / animation survive by moving on the terrain of Iceland in this manner?
