behind the name
The piaffe is a dressage movement where the horse is in a highly collected and cadenced trot, in place or nearly in place. Originally used in battle to keep the horse focussed, warm, and moving, the piaffe is now mostly taught as an upper level movement in Classical dressage and as a Grand Prix level movement.
