Well I think just like the horses she is refering to she is lumping us all into the same group.

Oh ok....because I was like....the majority of us people on this thread that have been in the horse biz for decades (51 years for me), it is no big deal to ride in a halter...LOL. Riding in a halter is a piece of cake. Riding a horsemanship pattern brideless is impressive, working a Dressage test bridleless is impressive, running a reining pattern bridleless is impressive, bridleless WP is impressive. And you GET this advanced on a seasoned horse that was trained in a bit. Riding in a halter is not terribly impressive.

That is my point. Bitless and bridleless is the end result of good training. I have said that many times. However starting out in a halter or bitless or bridleless on a horse who has never been trained is not a good idea. You loose the ability to make the horse light and responsive like you will get in a bit. Riding a finished horse bridleless is not hard at all. I do it around here all the time. It is simply the end result of a good finished well trained horse. Nothing more or less.

If all you are talking about is ploding around on a horse bitless that is not a well trained horse. That is nothing but an accident waiting to happen.

Me to. I have bred some really good horses who knew how to do a manuver but you still had to train the cues and make them light and responsive. That comes from good training and a light hand with a bit. To refine the cue. You can not do it with a bitless bridle or bridleless.

You are missing the point....the horse needs to be TRAINED to ride bridleless. It has nothing to do with the person, but everything to do with how well trained the horse is to seat, leg and yes...hand. Because at the end of it all, the horse will respond to your leg and seat....because with bridleless...there is no hand.
