My jumper is 14.2, very forward and has a 14 foot stride. He is basically the definition of English horse. Usually, I jump on him bareback and bridleless since he is very sensitive, but the other day I was going to take him for a gallop in a pasture so I decided I needed a little bit of extra brakes. I threw an old soft cotton lead rope around his neck just so I could bump him if he "forgot" about me. Well it turns out that he neck reins like a pro.. He moved everytime a little bit of rope pressure was on his neck. Could someone have taught him this for fun? (I've had him for 7 years.) Do some horses do it naturally?
