Aids, GermanHorseGirl :) We call them aids.. and spurs and whips etc are called false aids.

Thank you Duffy Duck =)
These vocabs do not belong to them we learn at school.. and its very difficult to find the right translations of our riding/horse words..
Maybe I'll find a list somewhere?

If you need help, ask and I will help as much as possible- my trainer teaches me in German only!

Pretty neat. I wonder If they were taught bitless. I don't understand how they get those horses to do those movements. I find this more impressive than stacy westfall who looks impressive 'till you see the big ole' spurs.

Is this that unusual?

I'm nothing special but not infrequently I ride bareback in a halter and my horse goes round, on the aids, and there is very little difference in her response and performance between that and wearing a bridle.

I've seen a fair few demos of people doing upper level movements bridleless. That's pretty cool.

Nice though - would be good for demos. I find it a bit gimmicky haha. But in NA would clean up clock in small tour in "traditional" tack.

The quality of some of the movements were lackluster, and even giving some credit to the breeding of the horse, it still takes a very balanced, educated seat to communicate at this level with tack, let alone just a bitless bridle.

I think I would have pushed for a perfect ride though to really make a point. Still pretty cool either way.... both vids were. I'd kill for half their talent.

Wow. Thanks for sharing this. I'm in the same boat as you, thesilverspear. My horse started out in a bittless bridle, and loves it. Occasionally I will use it and he goes round and perfectly the same as with the bit.

I wish I could keep my seat and legs like hers though! My oh my... Incredible!

The horse is great too! If I wanted to be nitpicky, I wish he was a tad lighter with his feet. I wonder how he scores on the gait collective marks.
