    I like it very very much! Maybe this man isn't great rider, but overall impression is great.

    He has learnt to ride at the age of 50 and by himself. I think this is remarkable and I think he has trained this horse very well without any help.

    Great achievement! I'm impressed. Maybe his position isn't perfect, but the thing I like in it, is that he doesn't impede the horse's movement.

    I'm also bitless, barefoot and treeless. Have had my boy since a foal.

    I liked the video. I like seeing a horse with no bit. The horse looks a bit tail swishy sometimes and the rider uses quite alot of exaggerated hand movements, but of course, I don't know how far this horse is in training so.....

    I've heard alot of people like the dr. Cooks, but when both reins are pulled it tightens around the nose and poll, as it has a head hugging action. I prefer a side pull personally. However, well done to this guy who has achieved this so far by himself.

    I'm not really impressed. The horse didn't appear to back well at the first of the video. The rider is sloppy to the extreme. If you want a horse to be really light you have to be able to ride. You can't be flopping around and waving your arms. You should stay centered and keep your hands and arms close to your body. Giving exagerated releases doesn't help the horse a bit. Giving properly timed releases is what helps a horse. The video seems to be of an overconfident amatuer than someone that really knows what he's doing. Bitless and barefoot means nothing to me.

    I am not overly sure about bitless riding, but the horse does NOT look impressed.

    He impedes the horses movement at every turn! When you flap your arms and lean from side to side you can't help but impede the horse. I think the horse does a wonderful job filling in for the sloppy riding.
