Train Your Own Horse with Stacy Westfall

May 17, 2023

Today, I’m answering a question that came in about bitless and/or bridleless riding. 
In the episode, I explain:

  • common mistakes people make when considering bridleless riding
  • the importance of understanding WHY you want to ride bridleless
  • assessing your horse's understanding based on past training
  • the differences between bit-less and bridleless riding
  • when I begin introducing bridleless cues
  • how bridleless cues are different than bit-less cues
  • how to create your own checklist to reach your next bridleless goal
  • how to double-check your work (and keep yourself safe)
And, my #1 take away after riding bridleless at a high level for 20 years.
