riding with a fleece blanket in winter?

It is 4 degrees c here and I only have an hour to spend at the barn. So I was thinking I'd just throw on the bridle and ride bareback for a bit. I hate to take away the warm blamket from my horse though. Would it be safe to sit on top of his fleece blanket and walk and trot, perhaps, canter around? THe fleece sticks to his hair pretty well so I woudln't be worried about it slipping off. Is this common practice or considered too dangerous or risky?

Personally I don't know about fleece and bareback, but in the winter on my old girl I used to put a fleece blanket between the saddle blanket and the saddle, that worked fine.

I have however, ridden around in a synthetic winter rug bareback and that was fine, so I would imagine that the polar fleece would be fine.
