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.
