Now THIS is what I want to see.

i am SO jealous!!! that has always been my dream! i love it!

do you think she trained him in a halter, or mastered everything in a bridle then moved to a halter? i can see advantages of both...

holey crap. i didnt even notice the lack of bit lol. He looks like hes having alot of fun.

Very nice ride. What I see is a well trained horse who was put into a rope halter for a free style dressage class. No big deal. Any well trained horse can do that or more.

Absolutely beautiful!! I for one am thrilled to see this! Now that horse is enjoying doing dressage, what a great team!

But he didn't give up his spurs?????? It is not that big a deal to take a trained horse and use a halter or no bridle at all.
I would rather give up my bridle then my spurs.

You usually master everything in a bridle and then drop to the halter.
But again he kept his spurs.

It should be the opposite...master everything in a halter, then advance to the bridle. That's what I go by....if I can't get softness in a halter, I have no business putting a bit in my horse's mouth. JMO.
