Excerpt from the Horseman’s Gazette Issue No. 4

Developing a bridle horse is a long-term goal and commitment but the product is well worth the process. In the end, you’ll have a horse that is light, responsive and a pleasure to ride. Buck Brannaman discusses the importance of maintaining proper form throughout the training process.

As a horse progresses from the hackamore to the bridle, he requires less direction from the leading rein and learns to follow the suggestion of the supporting rein. Your horse can also learn to take direction not only from the reins, but also from your feet. Using your legs to steer greatly improves your horse’s maneuverability, which is especially useful for roping.
