I love riding bareback! But yeah, I do understand how sometimes it can be a bit uncomfortable. But for the most part, the horses I ride are super comfy.

I've tried those, but my thing is, the "girths" on them tend to not get tight enough, and the pad slides back and I tend to go with it. No matter how hard I grip with my legs. Haha. :)

I do those and the stair one for heels-(too many too fast it will hurt)
squats :) best thing to do for the past three days I've done 100 squats, and i'm not getting jelly legs anymore-need to do more!

Ill have to try squats lol

I can't ride bareback long distances cos I have a bad back, and I think it would do worse for my position. I cnt hold my back up straight cos I have a curve in it, and I try and relieve the pain by shrugging my shoulders forward.

Oh, and I have another crazy idea.

They make shoes that have the heel lower than the toe and it's supposed to help your posture and help you use your muscles better and burn more calories. I thought I should find some of those to get in better shape, and it wouldn't hurt to try them to help me keep my heels down while riding. I just thought it was a cool little thing I would share.

That's a link about the patent. Sorta.

But here's a link to buy them. Be warned they are rather pricey.
