    Default Help! What *is* this called??

    I've seen it called Croupade and Courbette and I think both are wrong... plus of course the Cadre Noir site is only in French as far as I can find!

    I know someone here can help me find the name of the movement, COTH knows everything, right?

    and its the first picture on the right!
    HaHA! Made-est Thou Look!

    Not a croupade, courbette or capriole... or levade. I'll see if I can figure it out.
    Why is it that a woman will forgive homicidal behavior in a horse, yet be highly critical of a man for leaving the toilet seat up?

    Found it: Cadre Noir Croupade. Not a regular Croupade. I knew it wasn't anything simple:

    It is a Croupade as per the Cadre Noir's website.

    But then, according to the Spanish riding school, a croupade is when the horse jump off the ground with its four legs underneath at the same height...

    The Cabriole is when the horse jump and kick off at quite the same time.

    No.

    Especially since the OP's picture is from the Cadre Noir.

    And your website also has this page which at 'Croupade' shows the picture from the cadre noir's croupade but talks about the croupade from the Spanish riding school...makes no sense. I would not recommend this site as accurate regarding this.

    a hand stand.




    Or, the Trebuchet maneuver. I knew a SF mare who had those down pat.
