    Default Look at These Tempi Changes!

    No bridle or nothing else - just seat and legs! (1:45 into the video) And then in-hand with nothing but a dressage whip! (4:00 into the video). And everything else in this video - magnificent!! What a partnership!

    Yes, that is an understatement, it is not only the flying changes without a bridle, that our reining trainer can do also just fine, but those at liberty that are amazing.
    That is not the only in that video that is amazing!

    I don't like her stops, they are very jarring and on the front end, should be smoother and more of a soft glide than a few hops on the front end.
    The horse seems a bit off/uneven behind, especially on the RH hock.
    At times seems like stringlike jerking, although it may just be him.

    The performance is wonderful and the level of training and consistency something few can pull off, awesome.
