Pirouette - This movement is generally performed at the collected walk or canter where the horse's forehand circles around the hind limbs at a distance equal to the length of the horse. The horse should be slightly bent in the direction that he is traveling. He should remain "on the bit" maintaining his cadence as he travels. The horse should not deviate from his direction by moving backwards or sideways. This movements can also be performed as a 1/2 pirouette or 1/4 pirouette.
