Since we are at a very young age, we can discover some god-given gifts that we have and then develop those skills throughout our lives, This is one of the best ways how to be successful because practice and hard work are what is going to make you successful one day, Talent is a good base, however, you need more than that to push through and horse people can understand that better than anyone else in the world as they work very hard to attain the success that they deserve.
When it comes to horses, it takes a lot of work to train them for very huge events that are visited by a lot of people. It really takes a lot of psychological and physical training of your horse. Not every person can do that. It might not seem as hard unless you try it by yourself. It is not easy performing dressage as you have to plan it in details but it is even harder to perform Piaffe and passage.
What you are going to watch in this video is a performance of Piaffe with such brave elegance. It is an awesome and trained Piaffe that actually has the horse lowering the pelvis and using his hindquarters. It seems perfect just as Piaffe should be, super engaged and no horrible snapping and bolting of front legs and a slow completely unengaged hind end that we tend to see too often in modern dressage.
The rider and the horse have an excellent bond together and seeing the rider’s seat hoover forward and up ever so slightly and the horse’s weight shift dramatically over his hindquarters as he shifts into reverse, and then the rider just sit a little more, and the only bobble is the horse asking Jorge if he wants a forward Piaffe or to kick it up into passage, is simply awesome. The horse has brilliant moves and pace showing itself to be very clever. I had a great time watching this amazing performance. I am pretty sure you will enjoy watching it as well. Please have a look and let us know what you think.
