Ohh you do not want to ride that little snot bareback.. I will definitely have to get a video of he and I bareback. He's tries to turn into a crazy bronc.. Which he fails at so it's really this half stupid buck, at first he got me off a time or two but he can't now so he just tries to buck harder.. and it's not from any kind of pain or being uncomfortable, he's just being a little snot about it and thinks he can get you off bareback..We've had many a come to Jesus meeting about it lol

My least favorite video EVER was in 2006..I even hate to admit it.. I was on Hickory at a big show in Perry. Our first time together in a big arena and we were both soo nervous. We go in the arena.. Okayish first barrel.. Second was a disaster.. He bobbed at the barrel and over his head I went, into the barrel.. Took out a metal barrel with my head in front of a HUGE crowd of people and I was mortified..Hickory just stood there looking at me and I just laid there for a minute dreading having to get up. I got back on him and loped the pattern..They played that video over and over and over again..I've hidden it and it will never see the light of day again.

You so have to tape that to share! Love that rotten old man

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Oh mygod... I ride english and I held my breath the entire time you did that! I was waiting for you or your horse to fall haha! Those turns are much tighter than the ones I gallop :) Looks great to me- I slouch when I gallop bareback, but that's because my horse is boney.

Thank you! It definitely takes time but riding bareback is so good for you as a rider as far as your balance and seat. Do you have a bareback pad? That would make a big difference in your horses withers..Then you can practice until you're able to do like I do! It just takes practice..It's also something new and fun for your horse..I've seen English riders run barrels in their English saddles at fun shows.

Just watched both, and thought they were terrific! Did skip to the barrel section, and thought it was perfect - you should be proud! I remember the last time I even broke into a trot on Star bareback - well....let's just say her bouncy trot got the best of me haha! :)

I think I do it because they're barrel horses, they respond quickly to leg pressures, especially Nikki, you put a little leg into her and she's moving off of it or speeding up.. I was so used to riding Nikki and Hickory bareback that it's an automatic reflex to keep my lower legs off of their side and not so much as relaxed and just hanging there.. I've never thought about it but I guess it makes sense..
