Now if they would loose the sticks and actually work off their seats it would be much better. Several of the horses looked a bit POed at times and at others they looked like they where having some fun.

Reiner: Yes! I agree with you 100%. Sometimes I wonder why, when I see videos such as this one, they always have the stick? I understand it's just reinforcement, but don't you think it could, also, be done without those? Now, that, would impress me a million! And yea, I also agree that some of them looked a little irritated and at other times they looked like they enjoyed it.

I have been there. Do you guys notice the whips?? They are the link as sure has having a halter and lead line on the horse.
They are whip trained. It is not accepted around here.
Loved the music from the movie Spirit.

this is an impressive video about control, the reins are tied around the mans waste and he is controlling the horse with his legs and butt, could be voice too but not the reins

Rio: Exactly!! Thats what I'm saying. Can't this be done without the whips? Whether or not your riding or on the ground, if I seen this done without whips, like I said, only than would I be impressed more than ever!

Just watched that video, I dont know why it didn't pop up the first time? I think thats cool, but what's the point of the big stick though? Kinda just seems to me as if thats another form of reinforcement, just not a whip. Still neat though.

It can be and is done quite a bit. I drop reins quite often when I am working my horses. It helps me to get out of the horses way and use my seat and legs.

Take a look at riders like Stacy Westfall, Rocky Dare and many others who have done bridleless riding.

Wish I could find a video of Rocky Dare showing bridleless. He was probable the first to actually show with out a bridle.

The whip is the link. It holds the horse to the person. I was taught how to do this by an old horseman and got in some trouble because I carried a whip and it offened some people.. Yes the whip takes away from the picture but it is a link that holds the two together.
there is a step beyond the whip but I will not get into it as it will really offend. Along the line of a shock collar on a working dog.
