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!

As much as I love putting in serious work, I need to get a little bit of this back in my life! April 2017, only seven months after my abdominal laparotomy and I was teaching my horse, and kind of myself, how to ride bareback and bridleless to gain some strength back. That’s the ultimate trust exercise in my opinion. He’s a good soul ❤️ #thoroughbred #horse #bridleless #barebackriding #goriding #tuesdaymotivation #harderthanitlookspeople
