From what I've been reading on the Parelli forum, I believe that is the same lady that Linda Parelli bought Remmer from. And the Parelli's were really close with so I wouldn't be surprised if it was a Parelli rope halter and 12 foot lead.
Also it was my mistake, there was no laughter, just people talking in the beginning
See for me that is nothing new. You see it quite offten on free style reining for a good 25 years now.
Here is one in a halter with no reins but a neck rope. Only reason he even has a halter on is for the end. Again good training on a good horse. A trainer who is not afraid to put in the time and give it a try. It is nice to see this type of thing in other disciplines.
My older horse can be ridden in a halter and a lead, but he's not exactly a performance horse.... I want to teach my young horse to do the same thing...possibly even bridleless, this is good inspiration.
Who said I was referring to Parelli....
I wouldnt care if it was CA... or someone else. It was a nice example of what can be accomplished in a halter..
I think it will help open up a lot of peoples minds .... maybe??? That things can be done without a bit... and a horse can be happy doing there job and be a great riding partner. And im not saying horses that are ridden traditional arent Happy...
Im glad a lot of people who replied enjoyed it though!! :) Something to work towards!
