There's plenty that was done by Ray Hunt and the Dorrances, and Branaman that is directly connected to Vaquero training of bridle horses, which all goes way back to training connected to Classical Dressage and the use of the Jakima (hackimore).
In any case, I would love to see your training videos.
The filly is beautiful.
I agree. In this forum though, all I see is NH. I'm not saying its wrong. In all actuallity, NH and vaquero styles share most of the same concept, but today the old ways are getting covered up by new views on things, which is fine I understand that's how life goes, but making a bridle horse is an art, an art that is quickly dying away. Everyone can learn something from different methods of training. And I just though I would share mine and the bridle-horse art.
