My Trainer used to make me do it with no reins and no stirrups, we set up grids, like Gangsta said.

I did a LOT of work like that, with nothing but our legs and seat.
We never made any of our other students.

When I taught our Intermediate riders I would make them do the no stirrup jumping grids, or the no rein grids, but never both.
I also a couple times blind folded them and set up a "chute" with a jump, and had them do it blind-folded. It really makes you aware of your horse and get a real feel for them.
They were really great little riders!

When I come out to the farm for my lesson days I always do grid work without reins . It helps soo much with your balance ! I start with a caveletti and end at a 3'3" verticle . I do the same without stirrups .
I've tried both no reins and no stirrups one time just for fun . You have to have alot of balance for that but I did it just fine !
Has anyone else tried that?

Yah no if I tried jumping without reins Joe would dump me in a heartbeat! He is a complete turd, and my trainer wouldnt have us do it (at least not on Joe) because well i'd eat it lol. I have done without stirrups many times, mostly on accident lol.
