Some neat pictures. I dont know that I could ever do what you're doing tho. I can only imagine what would happen if either one of my horses were to spook at something and all I had was a thin rope around their neck.

Well I've been riding bareback so much that my balance is alot better bareback than in a saddle.
When Sonny spooks all he does is immediately take off and I find that bareback (this might just be me) I can feel when he's going to take off and flow with it until I get a chance to slow him down.
I've had him spook once on me while I was bareback and he just jumped...not alot....but then again the girl should have known NEVER to run towards a horse lol :roll:

You guys look fantastic. I'm impressed. Your balance at the trot and canter is impressive-I have attempted a few trots bareback with Spree and my balance just isn't there yet. You make it look easy.

How long did it take for you to be able to work him bridleless like that?

You guys look good together :)

a month about...though we still haven't gotten it perfect. He's still learning that when I ask him to stop he must stop and not just slow down lol.

I was randomly doing some groundwork with him on Wednesday and decided to hop on his back. Since I didn't have the bridle or halter I just put a rope around his neck and he behaved fine.
Normally I try out my new "stunts" in the roundpen...it's big enough to canter in, yet small enough where it would be easy to control him in.
Then we move into the arena

It took me a LONG time to get my balance for it, but now I have it pretty darn good. I did alot of Fluidity riding and passanger rides so that helped a whole lot!

OMG I so want to do that! Your horse looks so laid back and happy!

I lean back a little when cantering so I'm constantly on my balance point.
I suggest to start out using a bareback pad, then go bareback bareback....that's what I did!

For me it was the trot that was hard....the canter was easy
