Croupade (croupade) is a lesson in the high school of riding, namely a jump on the spot. It is a preliminary stage to the caper ; In contrast to this, the horse does not kick, but pulls the hind legs under the belly and the sole of the hoof points towards the ground.

In the variant of the Cadre Noir ( Saumur ), however, the forehand remains on the ground while the hindquarters kick out .
