You may complain about riding bareback for 1 month now, but let me tell you this:
A couple of summers ago I went for about 3-ish months bareback and now everybody who watches me ride tells me that I have a wonderful seat. I am CONSTANTLY getting compliments about how well I stick to the saddle. Not only that, but my riding has progressed much further because I can balance without relying on stirrups or reins to keep me in the saddle, and I know better how to move with the horse instead of going against the motion. I fell off a LOT when I went bareback for several months, but it was so much fun and definitely worth it.

I know it is going to be fun and definitely worth it! But, the horse I ride has some pointy withers... and I have ridden a horse before with ones a little bit smaller when I was 10, and did NOT like the feel of that! But, I am bigger (not much ;)), but I hope they wont be TOO big of a problem. And, I am a master at falling, so I am not worried about how many times I fall. As long as I don't severely hurt my self in the process, I think I should be good. =)

I know what shark fin withers are like! When I went bareback I had my old horse, he was a wonderful, super comfy Arab. Now I have my TB who is the definition of pain when I ride him bareback. Not as much fun.

Thats what I'm afraid of! There not so 'shark finish', but more of.... hill instead of mountain? haha I don't exactly know how to describe them! Hopefully she switches me to another pony I have ridden a few times. =)
