I filmed this yesterday on another trail ride. I think my saddle has been retired for the summer, lol. This is my fifth real ride bareback. Our normal "advanced" trails were being mowed and cleared off so we had to take the easy trail.
I find it remarkable that I can ride my horse at a trot, and a canter and a big STUPID spook (all in teh video) without a saddle and not fall.
Yet I can't walk across a flat surface to my car without tripping once.
Here is my video. If you go to the page, you can watch it in the HQ. It's a little better looking that way.
I just wanted to share. I hope ya'll are not sick to death of me yet.
Also, do you think I SHOULD get a bareback pad or do you think we're okay without one?
