Mexico has a fascination with dancing horses, and as in much of the world (browse the  "Dance" category on this blog) "dancing" consists mostly in trotting in place - the movement in dressage known as "piaffe". Here are a bunch of horses at a competition. You can see the varied skill and finesse with which they perform, some better trained than others. Dancing horses appear at horse shows and in parades throughout Mexico.
