I'm training me and Bonny to do Comanchee stops

So what it is, is when were riding bareback, no matter what speed were going I can jump off at her withers and she'll stop right beside me calm and collected. The idea is that when I'm off balance on her her reaction is not to run away but to catch me or stop if I dismount completely.

So far we can do it really well at the walk. It's too icy here to go any faster!

Any hints? OH YEAH! I ride her in a bitless if that helps.

Well, it seems that if it is too icey to move faster, you have no choice but to stay the low speed you are going. She's doing well with what you are asking her, so keep praticing at the walk. When your enviroment is safe enough to increase your speed, do so and begin progressing from there. Take your time and have fun. You seem to work well with her.

I'd say Kristy is correct. And yes you two do sound like you work well!
