    I have actually just decided to start riding in a rope halter over the winter. It will save me time warming up a bit, and hopefully get him to relax more when riding.. I probably will just ride bareback too, just to keep my seat warm!

    When pinching the butt cheeks it tightens the upper thighs. My horse would elevate and do a beautiful floaty trot, like he feet didn't touch the ground. My muscles lasted about 10 strides and so did the floaty trot.

    Don't ever allow other people to put you down for looking for more contact and relationship with your horse.

    Look at what can be done.

    And by the way this horse is 100 days from the wild and part of the Mustang challenge.

    I'm not going to let it get to me anymore. All that matters is me and my horses progress, not what others think.

    I actually want to compete in the mustang challenge eventually. Looks like such a learning experience.

    I'm actually surprised there is comments still going on this thread totally surprised me

    How long have you been riding like this?? It's possible that if it's only been a short time that your horse has become more RESPONSIVE to the different pressure instead of softer...if that's the case, you'll notice that the response you're getting now will start to dwindle

    Not necessarily. Horses often become lighter rather than heavier if the rider is consistent in the timing of the release.

    Thank you! My pony mare is part of the *others aren't* group. Sure, you can ride her bareback. Slowly. At a walk. For no more than 15 minutes.

    But try to work her properly, trot, even go up a little hill, they'll be hell to pay.

    My horse tends to go FAST when I put on a neck rope but he turns nice and when I put on his neck rope one day, I thought to myself, "maybe we should try barrels like this" And sure enough, we got our fastest time at home with just a neck rope. I was so proud! Glad everything is good for you too!!
