    Video of me riding bridle-less today

    I love my horse ! I taught him on the ground for 10 minutes to back up and stop from the rope pressure, and there was much more training prior to this !

    Thanks, I give most credit for him that day ! He could have gotten away with so much ! But instead he was listening so well and knew that I had all my trust in him, so he took care of me.

    Heres what I have done to be able to ride Slip bridle-less:

    You don't have to have your horse for 10 years to do this (ive only leased him for one, but he was broken in and had no dangerous habits)

    It was really easy (for me) ... I hardly did any thing on the ground prior to just jumpin on (that day), for 10 minutes with the rope pressure I pressed it against his chest to stop him and to back him up I said back up and put rope pressure on him, and when he stopped and backed up I released straight away. I completely trusted him, had hardly any fear was very relaxed, and focused on him allot you can see near the end there was a big bang and he hardly reacted. He had allot of attention towards me but mainly I think that in our minds and thinking we connected, because I can't believe that in 10 minutes he learnt to stop and back up from the rope pressure !

    He had never ever been ridden like this and this was my first time riding a horse bridle-less.

    The other training and riding I had done with him was:

    . Teaching him to steer with legs
    . Teaching him to steer by the reins western style
    . Transitions
    . Voice & que command to stop
    . Voice & que command to back up
    . Voice command & que to trot, canter and quicken the pace
    . Getting him to trust being with me for hours
    . Getting his trust so that his not buddy sour anymore
    . He trusts me to stay tied up for 2 hours or more (and doesn't jump around and get anxious when standing)
    . He used to be very buddy sour, he would neigh and pull back allot, now he hardly pulls back and if he does its only from the flight instinct
    . Teaching him to stand still when I mount (having a very lose rein) and to stay still until I ask him to walk on
    . Im teaching him at the moment to move his shoulder and hip
    . He leads on a loose lead and I can send him out of my space (respect of space)
    . Doing join up in the paddock and round yard
    . He stays with me in the paddock until I leave (mostly unless he feels, like im not being a good leader and protector )
    . Doing things like cantering bareback to the paddock and than he bolted .. so afterwards I taught him to stop when doing a canter bareback in a halter, in the paddock. So now when ever im bareback cantering around towards his paddock I can stop him with a whoa and lean back just so im giving a clear* que.
