    It's something I would like to be able to do someday. I have the basics down, but would never attempt it outside of an enclosed space. The largest area I've ridden bridleless was a 5 acre pasture, and it was nothing fancy, nothing more than would beexpected on a trail ride :) But I can go at all gaits, trun, stop and backup. No flying lead changes or beautiful reining patterns like the video above.

    A good solid stop cue from my seat did save my butt once though, last summer actually. I was riding out in the mountians and my bridle broke (where the bit attaches and my mare spit the bit out as we were walking along. My first instinct was to sit back and say woah. I did and she stopped.

    I borrowed a zip tie from my riding buddy and kept on going. Sure was glad I had practiced that at home ;)

    Pretty cool. I was watching a show with Pat Parelli and I think his wife was riding bridleless on the beach at full gallop. Pretty amazing but I don't think I would feel comfortable. I'm the What If kind of person..lol

    That is pretty cool.
    My instructor used to make us drop our reins when we did gymnastics just to help with balance but we had saddles lol..

    Here's my brother on his arabian gelding--we train using Natural Horsemanship techniques and we love Clinton's methods. My brother had had this horse for about 2 years when we made this video, and had been riding him bridleless only a couple of times. When we got this horse, he had been abused and had many issues, so extra time was taken before they went bareback & bridleless :)

    Have you all seen Stacy Westfall's bareback/bridless reining competition videos? She is also incredible and very fun to watch.

    Any finished horse should be able to ride without a bridle.
