    Invisible Aids Bareback Bridless Ride

     

    Imagine a rider who is trotting along on their horse.  Nothing is going horribly wrong, but it's not a particularly pretty picture.  The horse is leaning on the rider's clenched hands, and the rider is trying desperately to sit deeply and drive the horse forward, like their instructor told them.  They dream of being the envy of all who watch, floating effortlessly through one maneuver after another,... but in reality, they feel like two kids wrestling on the floor, fighting over the last cookie.
