    Any horse that is properly trained to move off leg commands and cues

    First you have to get them REALLY broke with a bridle. After your horse is good at all the manuevers then you can take the bridle off. It really isn't all that rare. Most finished reining horses could do the same thing.

    It's just riding with your seat and leg properly. Giving cues with your body and not relying on your bridle.

    Not 'just'. It takes hours and hours and hours of learning to communicate with the horse.

    Wow that's amazing. You need to ride well with your legs and seat and make sure you don't rely too much on your bridle :-D but like mls said it wont be easy!

    I think having a really really broke horse probably helps. My Quarter horse is really broke and neck reins really good and can be ridden with just something around his neck, but he has a bowed tendon right now...And I have no Idea how you train a reining horse because I've always had English horses..

    He uses his body alot to control the horse still. And if you notice he holds his hands like he would holding the reins

    obv. It takes a lot of time and effort too ;) I didn't mean to make it seem as if it only required the proper use of seat and leg aids, mearly that the means for controling him once he is at that levle were your seat and legs, as well as body position as clearly shown by Clinton in the video. He is still riding as if he has reins.

    With a western horse you are striving for a loose rein all the time anyway. But us "normal folks" will have to still cue our horses and check their speed once in a while with the bit. So I kind of look at this like the ultimate progression of a well trained horse. He can read your body language so well and you are so in tune with him, and he no longer challenges you and you don't have to use the bit for cues, well, that is what you get.

    And nope, I will never get there! But, it isn't hard on a horse that neck reins to ride in an enclosed area such as an arena, with just a neck rope. I think most riders can achieve that. I used to do that with my (lazy) Arabian when I was still just a beginner. And it still looks impressive.

    But I wouldn't feel comfortable doing that outside an arena, as you have absolutely nothing to back up your request for brakes, other than your body language.

    I wonder if Clinton would or could ride outside an arena bridleless? I would guess he could, but never would, as it's just not very smart, and he seems like a self-preserving kind of guy.
