This winter i have been working on riding my mare, slipper, bridleless. It is a very hard but very rewarding training process! A few days ago I finally did it, completeing an entire horsemanship pattern bareback and Bridleless. We did a flying lead change, lope circles,extended jog to regular jog, stop and back, pivots that were more like reining spins!! and slipper is only 4!!!! It was an amazing feeling and I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience and how it is going??
Congrats, that's great:)
Thanks Sara!! It was rather fun!! lol
That is awesome! When you say bridleless, do you mean leg and seat control only? Or do you mean in a halter? Either way, very nice, but I have been very impressed when I have seen people riding all over with no head control!
thanks and by bridleless i mean with out anything on her head and only a lead rope around her neck! I rarley use the lead though and it is mostly leg and seat and voice control.
WOW!! I am jealous :) I am able to use a halter and also drop my reins completely and use seat for certain maneuvers, but have not been able to go totally brideless yet. It is a dream though :)
That's fantastic!! Congrats!!
I've had my share of bridleless rides. They are amazing. I love doing simple lead changes bridleless. Canter to the center, stop, pick up the other lead, kind of like serpintines. And it's all bridleless. I love it!
That's such a great progress :D
Yes, it's also a very useful technique in shows. When you can tweak your horse with your feet, you really open a lot of doors.
I enjoy it. The only use I have for the bridle these days is to tweak his headset and do exercises that require him to lean into the bridle a bit. That and bending.
