I ride my horses with halters or leadropes around their necks all the time....just don't have any footage of it... yet. Except the short snippet in this video:

I should go back to working with her and see if I can't get her improved. That video's a little embarrassing to post now.

My gelding would have a field day with me if we ever tried this. Now that it is winter we do a lot of bareback riding with just a halter and lead though.

I ride my horse mostly with a rope halter and a leadrope, and sometimes also tackless.

I don't do any Parelli; I have some controversal opinions about their methods. Being able to ride bridleless is nothing more than a result of good, solid training. If the horse has a good foundation (you can use your seat and legs to completely control the horse) and the right attitude, you can take the bridle off without any fireworks.

Sorry for the double post.

If you go to your phone store, they should be able to sell you a cable with a USB port that you can use to move files right on to your computer.

Not something I'd do on a trail ride. I won't ride in a knotted halter. My concern is if there is any pulling on the rope, the knots will deaden the nerves as there is little muscle and no fat. At first I tho't knotted halters were great but not so sure any more. We used to find knotless rope halters worked quite well with no risk of nerve damage.

I'd be interested to see if it is possible to hack out on a trail bitless (and spur less). *note* I would never try it, my horses are naughty by nature. I'm pretty sure I could get them to do it in an arena... Eventually... Maybe...

I wish I can :/

Thanks for posting!
I do bridleless lessons on my horse once a week. Don't have a vid yet, but here are some pics. These were taken at the jog. I show WP and HMS, and the bridleless schooling really helps be independent with my seat and legs, and not rely hand.

I totally agree, that is one reason why I started doing it. You find your "holes" pretty fast!

Equiniphile and SkysEternalAngel,

I am going to get a cable today and see if them people can explain to me how to do it....I hate that my phone is smarter than
