Intro to Piaffe • The Risks and Benefits of Longeing

Grand Prix dressage rider and trainer, Michael Bragdell, shares step-by-step exercises to teach your horse piaffe. Plus, Joseph F. Davis, Jr., DVM, discusses that though there are certain advantages to longeing, there are also risks that should be considered. 

In this issue:

  • Bragdell demonstrates exercises from the ground to help teach your horse piaffe in a simple and stress-free manner.
  • Dr. Davis explains that longeing carries a potential path to lameness if done excessively, as small circles place increased stress on the lower joints in the limb.
