Dressage stemmed from military discipline, where a horse had to be trained to keep its rider safe in a number of situations - hence where the levade (raising the rider out of harm's way) and other very Haute Ecole movements came from. Even the basics like side-passing were (and still are) used for "crowd control."
This is something unique that I've never seen before - the horse has to be on the hindquarter for that movement! Thanks for sharing :)
