Dressage Horse Training: Building communication with Piaffe

Hello everyone,

I was inspired to try my piaffe work again with Donzer and Ava today after watching a video by Joseph Newcomb.  I was watching a video of his and thought it looked very similar to what I’ve been doing with Donzer.  But, I did like how he added in backing up to the process.  I gave it a try with both Ava and Donzer today and it helped!  So, I’m going to share below an early version of my efforts with Donzer, what we did today and a link to Joseph’s video’s because I really like his style of communicating.
