Here Kirstin is riding completely bridleless, halterless, reinless & no neck rope. Taz did really well. Stopping was a little on the slow side, but he stopped just the same. Kirstin just has to work on getting her seat right to make the stop without the reins.
She was even able to get him to turn.
Taz at a trot-no bridle
Kirstin proving that there is nothing in her hands. She had to work up to no bridle slowly. Here she is with the halter on, but no reins.
