My mare and I normally train hunter/eq, focusing on flatwork and some lateral work for softness.
BUT, wow, turns out she has a FAB piaffe and I just happen to have a nice dressage saddle I can have fitted to her, so we'll dabble.
She offered me a gorgeous piaffe during a panic attack on a trail ride. Instead of rearing or bolting she got uber-light and soft in front, collected on her haunches, and started to piaffe. More leg? More animated piaffe! Aside from the circumstances, it felt AWESOME!!
Sooo... Hopefully in a couple years we'll be able to achieve that intentionally!!
EDIT: not much of a point to this post, I'm just feeling some excitement as the saddle fitting nears...
