^mhm...The whole time he's like canter now? Very good job though dressage is hard enough with a bit.

Is she riding with a bridle in her hand? I would have just ditched the bridle and tied a string around is neck.

That is EXTREMELY impressive! Of course he's going to get a little bit confused. Bridleless is HARD. Without the neck-rope you would loose collection almost completely if not completely.

This video isn't of me. You can see it below in the video section titled "Bridle-less again" or something of the like.

Honestly? I just took his bridle off, and he did it. HOWEVER, I trained him from a yearling, he is 11 years old now and I could ride around just fine with just a halter and a lead or his bridle on his face and reins tied to the saddle horn. He was trained western pleasure, so he's used to having no rein contact.

A few weeks ago, I decided to hop on him when he was standing around (with no tack, no saddle or anything) and he listened pretty well. We only really walked and did a bit of a trot. So I decided to give it a go with a saddle and asked him to do all other things.


The biggest thins is knowing how to stop without reins. You have to teach your horse that a 'whoa' means to stop NO MATTER WHAT! If I say 'whoa' to Java, he will stop, whether I'm on him with a bridle, halter, no tack or standing on the ground.

I've trained him since he was yearling myself. So almost from birth!
