Automatic release? Crest release? How about NO release
 
Scroll down to the bottom of this page and see the videoed round put in by the rider with no bridle at HITS Tucson.

I know her! she is a phenominal rider! And Burberry is worth every bit of the 6 figure asking price...

Wow, I rode Kai bareback today with just a halter and he kept trying to jump out of the arena :S I could never imagine doing a course with no reins haha. I have enough issues with steering him when he thinks he is done:P

Looks like a very good boy! I have to say though...the little girl in pictures 2 and 3 looks unsafe to me :?

haha, i actually laughed outloud a little when i saw those! :-) The video is of brandie holloway but the 2nd and 3rd pics are of her daughter Hunter (who currently shows the horse) several years ago. The rest of the pictures are also of Hunter, but more current (and much more secure!). At first I was wondering why they would post pics like that on a sale site, but I think they're trying to show off how beginner friendly this horse is. Believe it or not, but Hunter is actually now a very talented and accomplished rider.

I have seen that vid on Youtube a while ago, I think someone posted it on HGS.

I think it is wonderful, and proof that all you need to ride are your seat and legs. Too many ride hands first, and this vid prooves that hands come last.

Thanks for posting!

Haha, I've done that over 2ft jumps! It's actually easier then it looks with a "push button" horse. Well, except for the whole 3'6" thing, that just scares me!

That's what I figured...I saw that a lot on sale ads when I was searching for my horse. There is one barn in Dallas that always posts their sale horses with a person standing up in the saddle...like feet on the saddle standing straight up in the air. They're not advertised as vaulting horses...just doing it because they can I guess:D
