About Piaffe-Performance

Piaffe-Performance was founded in 1999 by Dr. Cesar Parra. Dr. Cesar Parra and his team provide full-service training based on Classical Training Methods.

The full-service training has two components:

  • A tailored program for the horse and rider, and
  • A team which communicates with the owner, veterinarian, farrier and other service providers to ensure the health of your horse is the first priority.

The Classical Training Methods are those taught by the old Masters and perfected by some modern-day riders. These Methods are based on the Training Scale: Relaxation, Rhythm, Contact, Impulsion, Straightness, Collection. (Losgelassenheit, Takt, Anlehnung, Schwung, Geraderichtung, Versammlung).  This Training Scale is the foundation of the Classical System and of Dr. Parra’s training philosophy.

Dr. Parra’s philosophies by which he conducts his life are discipline, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, sharing, and strength of character. These are the same qualities he tries to pass on to the students and staff who make up his team.

We strive to form a highly functioning team between RIDER, HORSE, TRAINER, FACILITY and SUPPORT PROFESSIONALS such as VETERINARIAN and FARRIER
