Bitless Riding Portugal

Bitless riding an Icelandic Horse in Portugal. This is a Norton Bitless Bridle. It may have the cross-under-the-jaw reins (not a fan of this type of bridle due to the mechanics).

Icelandic Horses Fall Through Ice

The poster of this youtube video, entitles it:

Icelandic Horses fall through ice. Sometimes people do really dumb stuff.

"This is a video from animal planets "Uncut & Untamed". As a horse lover I find it amazing that all these riders would risk riding there horses on a frozen lake without checking to see how thick the ice is. I feel so sorry that those poor horses had to go through that ordeal & thank God the iceman jumped in to save them. What a courageous man."
