Good topic =D. I can do some tricks with one of my geldings... but nothing like spanish walking or anything!! I can get one of my daughters to hop on in a open paddock with nothing on (no bridel, saddle, halter, leadrope NOTHING), just a helmet. And i can get him to do circles around me, as if i would have a lunge line on him. And i use my voice commands to trot, canta, stop, walk etc...even change directions! Um, i have no idea how i trianed him though... i breed him, and i broke him in, so we have a strong bond.
I also play follow the leader with him, and i jog over jumps, trotting poles, with him following my every move. And then i turn around and follow him (but he thinks im 20 again, cause i cant run that fast anymore lol)
I guess jazzyrider, you need a trust, and bond between you and your horse... the rest will come with time. Thats what i believe anyways
