Equiniphile, or anyone else, how do I get into this parelli program? I really wanna try it. (:
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.
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... Posted via Mobile Device
Does anyone on here go bridless?! Post on here please!
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 ME...to be independent with my seat and legs, and not rely hand.
