Nice bitless and bareback riding. The horse looks very fluid and supple and free. When the bit is used, there is no noseband (yeay!).
As advocates for the Icelandic Horse, we research the types of riding, training, and tack used on the horse. Our objective is to bring good horsemanship to the breed, place value on natural gait, and educate riders and trainers about what to look for that causes problems for the horse (i.e. fighting the bit, forced frames, concussive practices, etc.).
