That's what I thought, too.  When I would do an extended trot (in my former life as a DQ), it felt like the horse was getting lower because he was pushing off his hindquarters so much.  I don't see that in endurance, possibly because in order to get that you have to have your horse's frame pretty compressed, which would be detrimental for a horse to negotiate uneven terrain.
