It is hard to tell, but in this video I am riding my mare without a bridle or a saddle. We did this mostly to prove we could. But it did more than just prove a point; it also gave me some insight. Trusting your horse is a huge part of a successful ride. If you don’t have trust, you don’t have much of a partnership. Now I am not suggestion that you all go home and ride your horse bridles, because if you aren’t prepared for it , it will be dangerous. What I am suggesting is to work on your relationships with your horses by having a bit more faith in them. At some point we all have lack the faith in our partners that they deserve and that jeopardizes the bond we are working to build and create. My message today is have a bit more faith because they just might surprise you. I know Hollywood did.
