Question Piaffe, passage and all that beauty walk...

I riding my icelandic horse to dressage and I got an idea to teach him passage and piaffe for more professional look! I think he's ready to do that...

How do I teach those things, all of those ideas on google are so "easy" but it can't be like that, it doesn't make sence you just let him trot and slow im down easy and when he does that you treat him, then you do it again and again until he is down to non-walking!!

Or does it?

If they don't have horses in haven, I'm not going.

you're not ready if you don't know how to teach or execute the movements. I would get a trainer to show you on a school master first.

There's so much work that comes before the upper level movments. It's not really something you can just "teach" a horse, like a trick. Find a good dressage trainer that can take you and your horse through the steps to that level.

I agree with the above posts 100%. High-level dressage maneuvers are not tricks, but the culmination of years of training through the training scale. I suspect that the reason that the instructions that you've found sound so simple is because they assume a high level of training on the horse already and are omitting the assumed years of mental and physical training from the directions.

My advice to you would be to look into finding a good dressage instructor/trainer, and see where your horse does stand, and start taking things up from there. There is so much that goes into high level maneuvers, not only the training background of the horse, but his conformation and physical strength play crucial roles in the ability to perform things like piaffe and passage.

Looking professional is far more about the quality of the training than the quantity of "tricks" taught.

99% of any dressagehorse isnt working 100% percent correctly, they all have their little habits or problems. That's why no matter what level in dressage your (not you specifically,everyone) horse is you always have somethign to work on, lol which is what makes dressage fun I personally like to learn from my trainer, and read books just so that I learn even when im not at the barn.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Im sure her horse works fine. As far as Piaffe, Passage, or other more high level maneuvers, I think one on one instruction is far more beneficial
