    cantering Chevy bareback (i really need help!)

    This is me cantering my friend's horse Chevy bareback. I know I am kind of hunched, but he was cantering weird because of our "oval" round pen. We put it up ourselves, so it wasn't an awesome job, but it's okay. Anyways, ignore the talking, my friends are stupid! Lol!

    Yes, I agree you are leaning forward way too much. You need to just sit up straighter, your legs are too far forward, probably a result of you being slouchy, but if you slowed him down, thought about your equitation and thought about what you look like while riding it would be much much better.

    Yeah, our "round pen" was stupid shaped, so he cantered weird. I would ride better under saddle. That horse bucked me off today and now my whole right side hurts! I also cut my lip with a tree and broke my bra when I caught it on the saddle horn while I was jumping. Today wasn't good. Lol

    I think you are using too much leg. Not by asking him to go but by squeezing to hold on. Let your legs relax at Chevy's sides so you don't seem so tense. Even try loosening up on your reins if it helps you to relax. My point of constantly squeezing when riding bareback: it can make your horse confused basically. GOOD LUCK! More videos! Lol

    Okay! I know something looked wrong, but I couldn't put my finger on it. I am usually more relaxed, but it my first time cantering him bareback, and the last time I had tried to get him to go, he bucked. Anyways, i'll relax and get another video!

    I'm not going to critique, but I will share a tip that I learned at the Horse Expo I went to and they did a demo on bareback riding.

    The key to riding bareback is to NOT grip w/ your legs... but to sit on your butt, not your crotch.....(not that i'm saying you do) and whenever you start to lose your balance to push on the withers.... it's best to start doing this while being lunged....... I know it sounds crazy, but it worked!! I saw someone who had never rode bareback before go from almost falling off to being amazing in 30 minutes by doing this...... it's pretty much a relax thing and to ride completely differently then you would with a saddle
