My Horse and I Tackless for the first time


With only 20 minutes of groundwork, by using the rope to teach stopping and backing up ques, so he understood how to react from the different rope pressures. It was more than just training, we connected with trust. The fact that he felt very willing to do this with me was how we were successful, that he understood me.

Well, technically, you're not completely tackless, as you're using a cordeo.

Very nice work, however, your horse looks responsive, willing and happy to be with you. Congrats on this achievement!

I don't think every one calls the rope that you ride a horse with around the neck, a piece of tack, because I have seen so many videos and pictures of people saying their riding tackless but their using a rope.

No offense - it might be just me, but I consider any object we use to cue something to our horses, a piece of tack, even if it's just a piece of rope. That doesn't lessen the great thing you've done with your horse at all, on the contrary - it opens up space for even more achievements. :)

Yea I think its a piece of tack but because its not considered that by the majority of people, and so many people on youtube call it tackless. I call it tackless because, it will get me more video views in the future (when I put these vids as public on youtube) and it just sounds better, because a heading like "riding horse with a rope" is not as good as "riding tackless". Maybe when people in the future, don't ride with bits as much, this will be more common and it will probably be called a piece of tack.

It can be called riding bareback & bridleless, or riding with a cordeo, which it is. :)

Of course, call it as you like. ;)

Yea that girl's way with horses, is a true inspiration to me 2 ! I regard this to be better horsemanship than many of those popular big name trainers. I have subbed to her on you tube recently. And I think I cried the first time I watched one of her vids ? If there was some one id love to get riding/horsemanship lessons of it would be her or Jean Francais Pignon.
