I ride Clue bare-back almost all the time, normally in just a halter & reins. I've ridden him down the road bare-back like this numerous times. I have two paints, a quarter horse, an appendix, & a tennessee walker, & I still trust Clue to take on trails & do new things with. They have a huge heart & a willingness to please. I gotta say Clue loves to run, but that's what he was bred to do, but he's never once took off with me, bucked, reared, anything. I don't even lunge him or anything before I ride.
