I tried to do a search but found several different answers. So tell me, what are the differences between the walk pirouette and a turn on the haunches at the walk?

On a side note, is there a good "dressage dictionary" resource/reference that explains the different terms? I know most of the terms but some of them start blending together (especially when they are in different languages).

Here's one.

I'm not sure that it answers your question.

For the difference as far as competition is concerned, see the USEF Rule Book, DR 112

What great article! Thanks for posting.

And, also kind of inspiring that she managed to juggle that kind of a dressage/teaching/training career with an emergency room medical practice. Holy moly!

Hey, I just got lucky on Google. I'm enjoying the article, too. It certainly is well written.

The rule book is a pretty good place to start, for both your questions.

Difference: size & collection of the walk

In addition to the description of the usef....the toH is a preparatory exercise to a w.p. It helps to assure that the horse learns to remain active, if p is done too early the horse easily learns to miss steps.

Helpful distinction. Sometimes though, people forget that the directive for riding TOH in a test from medium walk is to shorten the stride in the walk and then TOH. The result is typically either a half-circle, a turn on the middle or a half-pass around a half-circle, none of which are correct.
