Default Riding Bridleless

Here is a video Deeth Harney made of him riding his bridle horse Cap. Deeth purchased this horse as a 2 year old with 60 days riding on him. The video was made when this horse was six. He was mainly just messing around on his horse. You don't ride a bridle horse bridleless for very long. But there is a lot of things you can pick up from the video. How important it is to ride with your body, and how little you should actually have to pick up on a bridle horse.

I have heard tooo many people who believe if they control the face they control the horse. In a lot of ways you have to think of it the other way, if you control the rest of the body the face will for the most part take care of itself. You can't micromanage a horse in the hackamore, you have to give them their face a lot of the times.
