Pas de deux (dressage)


A pas de deux is an equestrian performance using two horses. The horses perform dressage movements, usually mirroring each other. It is seen not only in displays and musical freestyles, but also in performances by the Spanish Riding School.

Two horses do the exact same movements next to or across from each other (mirroring).

A pas de duex is performed to festive music.
