Excellent demonstration from Vitor Silva on how to begin training the piaffe and passage movements from the ground. He shows you how to prepare your horse, acclimate him to the stick on his hocks, croup and legs and ensure that you keep a relaxed and happy horse through this exciting developmental stage. In the next series (Vitor Silva - Long Lining), they will progress to long lines, a rider on board with help from a trainer on the ground and finally to the rider giving the aids solo.
Mr. Silva, runs Sons of the Wind, School of Equestrian Arts, in Mass, USA. Please visit his website for more details.
