Exclamation Piaffe Training

Does anyone have any tips or tricks on starting out my Freisian cross gelding in learning Piaffe?

What sort of dressage training do you or it have up to this point?

Yes - work with your trainer and make sure you aren't rushing into it. A correct Piaffe takes years and years of dressage training. If you're at that stage of training, working with your trainer is going to be more helpful than getting advice online - very few people know how to ask for Piaffe, let alone train it. Having said that, you've already gotten a reply from one of the few on this board that would be able to offer advice in training a (correct) Piaffe.
You can get your horse to mince it's steps in what I call a "parelli-itis piaffe" fairly easily, but it is very incorrect.

I agree with JDI, this is not a question you ask over the Internet. You need to talk with a trainer who can show you how to ask for it and help you train it if need be.

You can tell a gelding. You can ask a stallion. But you must discuss it with a mare. -Unknown
