Taz's stops were a little on the slow side. This was the first time Kirstin tried stopping him, he went from a trot, to a walk, to the stop.
Kirstin is still working up the nerve to remove the halter. She made Taz walk & trot with just the halter on until she finally got brave enough to...
remove his halter and go completely bridleless.
Kirstin really enjoyed riding him bridleless, she was truly amazed at his responsiveness without the use of a bridle. Now she just has to practice getting him to stop immediately without the use of reins.
