Imagine having perfect control when you ride, when the horse is completely free. Imagine galloping tackless over a field with your horse, and you know the horse is listening to you for real. When the horse is free you get the truth. When the truth is that the horse chooses to be with, then we talk about a good relationship.
Freeriding is actually easy to learn. Many people come to my clinics every year to freeride for the first time, and they all do it wonderfully. Any horse can learn it.
