Photo Challenge: 9 Readers Going Bridleless

Look ma, no bridle!

Want to test how well your seat and legs are working in concert? Want to see how over-reliant you might be on your hands? Remove your bridle! My riding coach in college used to do that to me all the time, and over the course of four years, I definitely learned how to use the rest of my aids. These readers appeared to have no trouble at all!
