What do you think about liberty training and tackless riding?

What do you think about liberty training and tackless riding?
I think it’s wonderful! All the horses that come to me always have so sort of fondation of liberty before leaving. It’s a great way to trust your horse and learn more control! I own appendix that works amazing bridless, better than with a bit! The only thing I caution is: If you don’t have the correct training done. Your horse will leave you when you fall. If you horse isn’t listening to you in a dangerous situation, you haven’t completed the basics. Liberty is risky if rider or horse isn’t prepared properly
I think it's great if you can do that with your horse, you're very lucky but for me, safety comes first. Not so much for the liberty training but the tackles riding. There are so many things that can happen that could be avoided from using the correct equipment. Not all the time may I add & I take my hat off to those who do it!
I think it's awesome and totally freeing
Ohh it's really good for the horse and makes them more focused on anything. They'll trust you more if you do it.
