Who here trains their horses to go completely by seat?
I'm just wondering how many people prefer to ride\train their horses to go completely off seat? When I ride, I prefer not to use the reins. I hold them very loosely, but that's all.
I'm in the process of breaking my boy, and am working on training him completely off seat. So far he walks, trots, turns, and backs without having to touch the reins. We are working on turning the hind end only, or the forehand only, and are making good process.
Who else prefers to ride in this fashion? Every says I'm weird for riding\training my horses like this?
