How long did it take for you to be able to work him bridleless like that?
a month about...though we still haven't gotten it perfect. He's still learning that when I ask him to stop he must stop and not just slow down lol.
I was randomly doing some groundwork with him on Wednesday and decided to hop on his back. Since I didn't have the bridle or halter I just put a rope around his neck and he behaved fine.
Normally I try out my new "stunts" in the roundpen...it's big enough to canter in, yet small enough where it would be easy to control him in.
Then we move into the arena
It took me a LONG time to get my balance for it, but now I have it pretty darn good. I did alot of Fluidity riding and passanger rides so that helped a whole lot!
