First time for me and my horse bridle-less

Ok so it has been a year leasing Slip, we have a good trusting bond now.

I nearly cried out of joy riding today ! All this preparation of riding bareback in a rope halter steering him with my legs, transitions and stops really paid of ! I can't wait, soon I will be able to ride tackles in the arena,paddock and jumping (but with a saddle sometimes) !

Prior to getting on Slip he knows "whoa" as a voice command to stop, and on the ground for 5 minutes I stopped him using rope pressure on his neck... he pretty much just guessed what I was asking for, (i think), either that or he learnt all that in 5 minutes. HORSES ARE SO SMART !!!
And he just backed up when I asked him to, even know I only did it on the ground for 3 minutes ! And off course he was able to be steered with the rope and my legs, because I taught him to steer western style when they put the reins against the horses neck.

Hopefully the video of riding today will be on youtube soon !
