    The people she rides with was involved with Parelli at some point. I can't remember the exact story.

    Even horses that are "well trained" and mastered everything in a bridle can't work as well with a halter.

    I was very impressed with how happy this horse was doing his job.

    Just to play devils advocate... You really don't have any idea if she used gentler training methods or not. All you are seeing is the result of the training that was done with whatever method she used. I would guess that she had a very well trained dressage horse that she put in a halter and trained to do this demonstration.

    Gentle training = happy horse...happy horse = happy expression on face...that horse in the video had the happiest expression I've ever seen a dressage horse have and kept that throughout the whole video.

    Even a well trained dressage horse may or may not go that good in a halter. That horse is very soft and light, and with how dressage has gotten most are not soft or light and they were taught that way by their riders.

    Spurs are for refinement, just because she didn't loose the spurs doesn't mean that she needed them or even used them.

    Ah! You got to say it before I did!

    The spur is for sublte aids, not rough jabbing. In tempi changes, if you jab the horse, you will not get smooth changes. A slight turn out of the lower leg lays the spur on the horse.....or not.

    I always wear spurs when doing higher level work, yet I seldom use them.
