anyone ever trained with nothing

Just wondering if anyone has ever trained a horse to ride with nothing right from the begining. For instance never put a halter on them or use a rope or anything?

Just curious, I thought it would be a good challenge for next summer. Pick up a cheap untouched horse and try to break it to ride without any aids. And if all else fails I can hurry and break it the normal way and sell it.

Sounds really cool, and extremely challenging.

Seems very challenging!

Without aids .... such as a halter, lead, saddle, bridle, round pen or arena, lunge line? What do you consider aids?

I think she meant without any equipment...

I don't think it would be impossible but would take a lot of time. Without any aids, it is extremely difficult to communicate with the horse.

Unless you have an untouched horse on your property, the horse will at some point have had to had a rope or halter on to be caught and sold, I would think.

Not anymore. Riding them is 'cruel', according to him.

Another whack job who just keeps getting whackier.

I can't really claim to have totally trained my horse with no equipment, but years ago I had a colt from birth who I spent a LOT of time with- at least 2 hours per day. I did halter break him very early, but a lot of the time I just hung out with him in his field and brushed and talked to him, etc. or even just sat and read a book. When he got big enough I began sitting on his back (I was his best friend so he didn't mind at all). He would walk around and graze, etc. and I could steer him a little with my legs. Sometimes I would just loop a leadrope around his neck and steer with that. We had really good communication as I had spent so much time with him, and when it did come time for me to train him he was a piece of cake. He trusted me totally and was the best horse ever.
