Horse Picture

Dressage - Piaffe
Piaffe is a highly collected and elevated trot where the horse appears to remain on the spot.

The Piaffe requires immense strength and engagement from the hindquarters which have to lower and flex in order to raise each hind foot and ensure that the horse is light and mobile in front.
