Video Description

Vitor brings us this video of Piaffe and Passage from the saddle. He assists from the ground, beginning with a horse who has begun this work already, demonstrating how he uses two whips to encourage the horse. He covers how the rider should ride the piaffe and passage, keeping the horse in front of the leg. He warns against getting the steps too far underneath the horse, and to keep the collection coming from the hind end, not by restricting the front.
