Kicking Over the Traces

Trying to harness an old saying
to say what can better be said by sayings

Kicking over the traces
coloring outside the lines
or going walkabout in the outback

Finding a way to say breaking free
without insulting what you're breaking free from

Traces are the straps that tie a horse to a vehicle. If the horse gets a leg over one he is no longer possible to control. The expression refers to someone rebelling against authority.
