Know the difference
Fairly sure the bottom picture is passage though….
Can people who make these stupid graphics please learn something about dressage before trying defame our sport?
Defame your sport? what, the modern take on “dressage”? Whats so stupid about this picture? does it go against your belief system to think that a top dressage rider is actually really crappy? oh wait… never mind. most people have their blindfolds on anyway.
You’re obviously new here. What’s so stupid about this picture is that these are two different movements. But that’s cool, you can call us the ignorant ones, go right ahead.
yeah… I love when this happens.
idk poopy about dressage though so can someone verify what it is we’re looking at?
IMO, whether the bottom horse is performing piaffe or passage is irrelevant. Either way, the top horse’s back is round and the horse is soft and relaxed while performing the movement, and the bottom horse is terribly hollow and tense while performing the movement. Two different movements or not, the horse’s back should NOT be hollow like that and the horse should NOT be that tense. The point of dressage is to create a light, soft, supple, relaxed, willing partner who can perform intricate movements with precision and accuracy. The top horse demonstrates this, the bottom horse demonstrates the opposite (which, again IMO, is seen far too often in modern dressage).
