    Okay, it wouldn't let me edit it but here is the example that I was trying to post. Notice that the horse keeps his pivot foot in the same place but shifts the weight off of it every time he puts down his other back foot.

    Yes! I see what you mean now. Thanks.
    What happens at like 0.05 when he kind of lifts his foot up really high? It looks like he almost tripped over himself?

    I think he was trying to throw a buck in there for good measure. :) Looks like he is feeling pretty good.

    I love the horse in the video Koomy posted. Such BIG strides! I would kill to ride him. O_O

    I would love to be able to do that kind of advanced dressage work, maybe someday I'll get a good trainer and a horse capable of it, haha.

    I did learn from this thread, verified some information I already knew and learned all about rollbacks. I thought it was just a sharp turn, but I guess that's too simple, lol. So basically it's a BALANCED sharp turn, right?

    We are looking at three different terms here.

    A Pirouette which is an upper level English dressage movement.

    A Pivot which is a Western movement.

    And a Rollback which is Western as in reining and English as in jumping.
