    We did it!

    Today I rode Shakira. .. bridleless.
    It was the first time ever for both of us. I was so proud of her I just had to share. It went really well, I literally just jumped on with her wearing nothing but a lead around her neck. Despite a howling wind and smoke from the neighbour's burn off floating over the fence she was perfect. We just walked, halted, turned, crossed a tarp and backed but I am so proud. Question for the masses, what are you proud of achirving eith your pomy? And what NH should me and pony do next? Sorry for spelling errors I am on a phone.

    My boy's accomplishment is also going bareback and bridleless.. We walk, trot, turn, halt, back, pivot, sidepass, leg yield, and we are starting to get our canter down so we can jump!

    What blew me out of the water was the day my previously so fearful horse, moved in a large circle at my request, using just my hands and body, in the middle of the pasture. What's neat with him is now I just point at the part I want him to move and he'll do it.

    Congrats!
    I have been working on liberty with my horses as well, and I have found it is easiest to start in a round pen or small paddock and then move out to larger spaces.
