    Like MBP, I usually drop the reins to the buckle at the end of the ride and just steer with the the legs at the end of the ride. Vinnie will move from my leg quite well, but not in a complete circle (I was testing it out yesterday as a matter of fact). I've never trotted/cantered him without contact, but I think he would respond, if anything, to my voice.

    As a matter of fact, he does better with voice commands in downward transitions than seat/rein commands. Whether that is a good or bad thing, I haven't decided ;)

    My horse is really broke, but he isn't a leg kinda horse, he needs some guidance with his face, but he doesn't need a bit. He is really really good though, I love him!

    Riding other horses that aren't as broke and are hard to ride really makes me realize how broke he really is. I got on this girls horse today who kept refusing with her (my trainer asked me to get on him). He was really quick strided, and had he kind of movement that gives you a wedgie. Yeah, not fun by any means. But, I made him do his job and made him return to his broke self. I got back on Moose and felt how slow he really is! I'm so used to him being naturally slow so I normally don't think twice, but I felt every foot and every movement he made and really made me appreciate how great he is. Having a huge strided horse makes me never want to get on a quick one again.
