What do you consider the most impressive horse trick?

So, I have found this to be a fairly subjective question...What tricks/performances in horses do you find the most impressive?I have to say, the most impressive horse performance ever in my opinion is the Lippizzaner/Airs Above the Ground...Trick-wise, I like the "Curtsy Bow" where the horse stretches out it's legs and lowers it's fore-body onto the ground. I like nodding yes and no...and the Spanish Walk So what do you prefer?

I've always loved really good bridleless riding. Not as flashy as Airs Above the Ground, but stunning in in a simple, seamless kind of way.

Since I'm caught up in the performance horsse world, I love to see the dressage one time flying changes and canter pirouettes. Piaffe too. All those advanced dressage maneuvers....

...And of course a big ol' sliding stop is a must ^^

Trick wise, I love the trick that I taught Toby haha. Each time I say lift, he lifts the foreleg that I've pointed too and holds it out. It makes all people at the places we stop on long trips laugh haha.
Performance wise, I love any of the higher level dressage movements.

...Every rider has that one horse that changes everything about them...

The best horse trick to me is a horse that is responsive, happy and successful no matter what it is doing

I love reining spins, they aren't really that difficult or flashy, but I think they are cool.

Also, bareback and bridleless always wins my attention.
