Very nice ride. What I see is a well trained horse who was put into a rope halter for a free style dressage class. No big deal. Any well trained horse can do that or more.

But he didn't give up his spurs?????? It is not that big a deal to take a trained horse and use a halter or no bridle at all.
I would rather give up my bridle then my spurs.

You usually master everything in a bridle and then drop to the halter.
But again he kept his spurs.

It should be the opposite...master everything in a halter, then advance to the bridle. That's what I go by....if I can't get softness in a halter, I have no business putting a bit in my horse's mouth. JMO.
