I believe that the horse should understand a movement before they can execute.
If you explain before doing and in extent teaching, you lead your horse to success.
You need to give yourself the time to ask and your horse the time to respond.
Because the difference between making and teaching the piaffe is just one second.
I’ve explained a lot more on that concept during TRT Live in Germany last year, you can find a video on that below.
