Cantering on three legs!

Wow, this horse was trained to canter on three legs. The movement is called the jambette. Has anyone else seen this movement before? It's some old european movement.

I have never seen that before, neat though.

That is incredible.... I wonder what kind of cues you would use to get that to happen.

Thats pretty! I've never seen that before!

I don't see the beauty nor practicality in a horse lifting a front leg up; feel free to enlighten me, anyone! Now this is practical: You Tube: Another Massage by a Horse Hoof.

Not so much pretty as it is interesting haha

Cool. It seems like a move that may be practical in mounted hand to hand combat, back in the day. . .

I agree with Payette - I can totally see that being a handy skill for your horse to have when your surrounded by your enemy. Just like capriole.

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 :)

This is the lifting of a foreleg, like Spanish Walk, except SW alternates the lifting in a necessarily snail's-pace walk. Exactly what is the military/dressage purpose of these, or is there any?
