Ok, so for christmas I got the book Gallop to Freedom (not a very good name...)
And I got a rope loop specially made for bridless (because for the last year I have been using a leadrope )
I have been having so much fun using the books training methods and it seems my horse is having fun with me in the arena too, I am no longer keeping her prisoner while I try and get her to do groundwork
So I have been riding her bridless, and doing a bunch f groundwork stuff with the rope around her neck. Today I set up a little jump up for us to go over (with me running beside her) she spooked at it the first time and ran away and galloped around the arena a few timesthen stood at the end and looked over her shoulder at me (i was sitting on the jump waiting for her to come back) and I called her and she came trotting over to me and checked out the jump. I was EXTACTIC and I still am, "Gallop to Freedom"s training methods are amazing and working fantastically for me and Rena, I have got her going over thigns that I never imagined a she would go near, especially not bridless!
Anyway, I have run out of things to do with her! Do you guys have any trick or game ideas we could do bridless? The book (oh, and its by the founders of Cavalia) doesnt really have any training ideas. I don't want to train her to rear because everyone at the barn would be on my back about how bad it is
Thanks in advance
