tackless

  1. New to Horses
    hi :^) I'm a student in central Iowa and a job at a horse barn was pretty much dropped into my lap from the heavens (my mom's friend Pam) after I expressed interest in riding again. I'm a little bit rusty, but I've been riding a little morgan named Fritz and an obscenely overweight fjord named...
  2. Horse Pictures
    Guess what- I finally was able to dress up and take pictures with Tessa! I can't believe I actually have a horse to do this with (I know, I know, I've had Tessa for over 2 years but sometimes it still amazes me) My amazing friend came out and took some fantastic pictures with Tessa and I! I'm...

    So lately I have seen people all over youtube and instagram riding with these neckropes - usually made of paracord or some kind of unbreakable rope. It has become an extremely popular tool for bareback riding and tackless riding. I can see why people like them, they're great for training your...

    I just recently learned that some people are able to do "tackless riding" on a horse with absolutely no tack on. I saw this video of a girl on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2F5EzY48HA Is she doing it right? Does it take a special horse to do this? How do you train the horse? I am...

    I want to teach my horse how to ride in only a neck rope. He neck reins like a dream but the problem is that he wont stop without that pressure in h is mouth from the bit. He is not hot or hard to handle he just needs that reminder from the bit, but so many people have taught such hot horses to...

    I have a great bond with my horse, and we have complete trust in each other. Is it possible to go tackless, "cold-turkey"? Ive been researching a lot about Liberty Training and using only a neck rope. I'd like to start in his pen so there is no threat posed to either of us, but do I really have...

    Hi there! It's winter where I live (New Zealand) and I've decided both me and my boy would really improve if we pretty much started from scratch. I'm not saying I'd like to rebreak him or anything, but just, go back to basics from the natural horsemanship side of things and I'd really like some...

    Hey guys! Ok so I'm going to try to make this as simple as I can. I am really wanting to ride tackless on my lease horse. I usually ride bareback with just a halter and lead rope. My lease horse is 22 years old and bomb-proof. She is fully trained. I have been riding for 5 years. I ALWAYS ride...

    Okay, so I've been thinking that everyone should put on here something they REALLY want to brag to people about that they've accomplished with their horse or whatever, because I always want to brag about things my horse and I have done, but nobody ever really wants to hear it, so here's...

    Sorry for the awful quality of the video. This was our first time without a halter, so we just walked and added a bit of trot, then put the halter back on before the canter. She got a little worked up on the canter from today (the canter in which I'm wearing the green shirt is from a different...
