She never actually developed much of a swayback, just being in her mid-20's when I was a kid and years of pregnancy had caused the muscles around her spine to droop a bit I suppose? Her actual back wasn't swayed, she just had a god awful protruding spine!

I know what you mean. I have the opposite problem. It is like riding on a HUGE drum or ball.

I have to say I learned to ride bareback in a group that ONLY rode bareback. We also doubled up, allot. We went through all gaits, jumped, anything we could possibly think of. All the horses are still in excellent health and going strong. Some are now in the 20s, one is 26, they are mistaken for being in their teens. Bareback is much safer, the horse carries less weight, works better, you have better communication, and you become a better rider.

I think variants make a huge difference. I have a standardbred at 16.3 at 1190 . I doubled bareback on him once, not only did he not care, he enjoyed walking about. However I did not do anything more than walk and it was for no longer than 10 minutes. Honestly I wouldnt push past that. At a walk fine...personally, push it past that....and I don't think its good for your horse. So keep that in mind. Also keep in mind your size, im 5"2 not a big girl and so was my friend, really little. Listen to your horse when it comes to that. I just wouldnt really make it a habit

I don't think I've said it yet, but congrats on the new horse!
If you want to ask any more questions about doubling bareback without all the controversy..or about anything for that matter feel free to message me. I have competed in double bareback classes, and all the horses were fine, so you're good.
Thank you! I love my horse :) Thank you, I will for sure ask you if I have any more questions.. that's very kind of you :]
