My friend and I have starting teaching our horses to ride bridle-less, don't worry we didn't just go out and take off the bridle, we still have them on. Now we're in a halter and lead rope, the lead rope is the reins, tied to the other side of the halter. I was wondering, where to we go from here? I'm teaching my horse the leg cues I want to use on him to turn left and right and to stop and back. He's getting better at turning, but I don't know what to do now. Should we just practice what we're doing till we get it down (I know it will take a long time, most likely won't take off the bridle till next summer, maybe late spring) What should we do after that? Is there anything that I could do with the bridle and bit on? And we have an outdoor ring and is there anything I could do over the winter to help (yes we ride outside on the snow and sadly a little ice with special snow/ice shoes on them) Thanks in advance for any advice.
