The pirouette as the testing of the collection! Colonel Alois Podhajsky said aptly: “You can buy flying changes, piaffes and passages, but you have to ride a pirouette …” In Reitkultur No. 12, the last one this year, you will find my analysis of pirouettes. What are the requirements? How is the aid given in the gallop pirouette? How do I train this exercise? Which problems can arise and how can they be corrected?

My student Mariette Wassibauer shows with our “former” Brilliant this difficult exercise. The pictures were taken by Lázló Kontli during a training camp in Hungary in the summer. I hope you enjoy reading it!
