So my question is... Do you think it would be better to ride him bareback or with a saddle? I know riding with a saddle is supposed to give more support to the back, but he only gets sore towards the back of his back.
He's only sore here:
So... I could ride him bareback and not even touch the part that gets sore, or I could ride him with a saddle and give the rest of his back support, but put weight on the part that gets sore.
Which do you think is better?
