Really odd as in the UK we have people like Karl Hester and Charlotte working their socks off to get bums on seats at clinics and events to encourage new riders to get involved in the sport
And who mentioned any thing about normal conventional methods being cruel?
Karl giving some piaffe/passage training

And another showing how a person on the ground can encourage forward movement by just holding a whip - no leg tapping - and also shows how too much forward encouragement will make a horse tense and agitated so it runs away from the hand


Both of these horses have reached the level of understanding of collection and have the muscle for it to be able to perform the movement which should follow naturally with the right cues
A horse that lifts its legs up to the cue of having its legs tapped is akin to trick training

When the horse is truly/properly collected the extensions which come from them are long strides with the same, or slightly slower, tempo. And the horse will give the impression of being uphill rather than compressed (in the head/neck). In order for piaffe to be sustained the hindleg joints must be compressed more and the horse should be up/slightly open. Apply that to RR and ask.
