    If you do the ground work on a young horse properly, the first time you get on they are supple to the bit. The contact won't be consistent and steady all time as they are still working on their own balance and how to balance a rider, but they should be accepting and yielding of the contact. You teach a horse to be ridden this way from the beginning, and he will start off his training building topline muscles and learning to carry himself, right from the start. What this guy is doing is the opposite of a good start in terms of teaching the horse to carry himself. Leg means faster, pulling means slower or turn. He has an AWFUL interfering seat and hand at that. This sort of riding and "training" really bugs me. Why not just spend a little longer, and actually start the horse off on the right foot?

    I didn't watch the breakers video so apologise for my misconception. I assumed he'd be working the horse as a basic breaker - after a couple of weeks under saddle no matter if the horse is being worked in the basic round frame if a good breaker or not, it's not going to have a beautifully muscled neck unless genetically 'predisposed' or having been lunged/long reined for a long period before backing.
