"I ride icelandics so i don't really ride dressage much but im teaching my horses bit of those dressage things, so I where thinking how I can teach my horses piaffe and passage and are those things a part of the dressage? Im really into all that "weight on the back feets" couse at the icelandic horseride we really what that like this picture shows"
Impulsion is NOT putting weight on the back feet. It's asking your horse to use its hindquarters for power and impulsion, stepping further under themselves with the back feet, engaging their hocks and shifting their balance back off the forehand. Please find a dressage trainer or at least get a book to learn the basics of dressage.
one of the guys you commented here asked for how long I have been riding, it's not like I didn't mean to tell it....
that not the hole matter I think
but thanks for the webs...yes I think I have to relax, but those words from those two there where bad! I can stand on that...i have been trying to find out how to do this things, piaffe and passage, but I know now while I have been talking here that I need to find someone that knows more about the dressage movements. Like I sayd in that forum at www.yourhose.co.uk
I was trying to find out how to teach this, couse in this training are some steps that are helps for the icelandic rides, like I sayd, "weight on the back feets". Its not like I where going to teach the piaffe and passage on my own, I bet I would never do it perfect!
but I guess Electer will get great with help from those train in the piaffe lessons, how the horse is going on the back legs, that's what we want in icelandic ridings. The hole thing needs more PRO horsemanship from a PRO!"
When I say PRO im not talking about those that have been trying to teach me how to ride my own horse, that I, myself, best know! They really hurted me, sayd that my horse wellness was not good if im the rider, what was that suppost to mean?
