Video of the Week: Teach Your Horse to Piaffe

Printer Friendly

The New Year is a time when we set goals and resolutions. For 2013, we recommend challenging yourself and your horse to learn a new skill. How about the piaffe? It's easy with this simple technique from the clever folks over at Peak Rock Farm.

If you master this skill, you can move on to more advanced maneuvers. From the video comments: "For pirouette, swing carrot in a circle above your head."

This horse must have know how to Piaffe, before, and the carrot just signals him/her to perform the Piaffe.

I got the impression this was a bit of a can't literally teach a horse to piaffe with just a dangling carrot. Good incentive though! We should use treats more often when we train our horses.
