Colonel Christian Carde schools an accomplished rider in the piaffe and canter pirouettes.
Colonel Carde describes the lightness he is looking for and what the rider needs to do to achieve this. As they encourage the horse to stretch, they look for suppleness and elasticity. After a warm up they work on a correct walk before going to the piaffe. The Colonel assists from the ground for a walk with more activity and lightness in the front.
