Californio / Vaquero / Doma Vaquera
I thought that I'd try to split this off into a separate thread. On the Western Dressage threads there's been a lot of talk about the Californio / Vaquero / Doma Vaquera training.
If one were interested in that type of training, at what point would a specific trainer be needed for that discipline?
Is the progression of bitting similar to that of a "bridle horse?"
Does anyone here have experience with that type of training?
I thought it might be interesting to compare/contrast - kind of like the French method thread...
