    Dropping the reins is not the same as riding without them. They are there IF something goes wrong, you know they are there and the horse knows.. If you truely can ride without them leave the headstall off and see how confident you and your horse are.
    I try not to use my reins but they are still there for security for both of us. Even a little twin string around the neck is security and with a well trained older horse it is sufficent.

    The stick comes from the way Spanish vaqueros handle cattle, sorting and moving with the stick rather than roping. La Garrocha

    And dropping reins is different how from the video you posted that you seem to think is so impressive??

    No he had the security of the reins. I was just impressed at his total control of the horse without once resorting to the rein. Reminds me of a war horse?
    I assume you were not impressed with his handling of the horse????

    It was very impressive. It is nothing new. That does not change the fact that the horse was very well trained. Again it is a good way to work a horse and make sure you are staying out if his way. I have found not just with my self but others. You rely on the reins too much. By dropping them and working the horse with just your seat and legs the end results when you pick the reins back up is much better. It has nothing to do with security or confidence or anything else. It is about training both your horse and yourself.

    Is it really? Hard to believe frankly from watching a video.

    I don't see anything wrong with using a stick on ground or whip in saddle as an extension of the arm (or leg). Nothing to be offended about unless it's used in abusive way.

    La Garrocha was part of the show at Equus Theater in PA this year. Very impressive I must say.

That horse could probably compete and win in a reining or a dressage test. The stick is proof that his training is solid not a training tool. Just like bridleless riding should be used as a test not a goal. I am certain that the horse was solid in every single manuever before the rider ever picked up a garotcha.
