hey all! I moved the post to just horse riding so no one is confused. I love love love bareback riding! But haven't recently been able to because of the horses I have been riding. Your horse is so cute by the way!

Riding bareback is something that I hope to accomplish with more lessons. That would be the ultimate way of proving myself to myself if I can walk/trot/canter confidently while bareback =D.
I can't wait to see pics of you two!!

In the last 10 years of my life, I have ridden more bareback than I have in a saddle and I love it. And jumping bareback is very tricky, it takes a lot of talent. Here are some old pix of me and my QH Denny just playing around. That jump was set at about 3 feet. I know there are lots of things I am doing wrong but it was a long time ago. The hardest part of the whole thing was sitting his takeoff. That is why you see my hands buried in his mane in all the pix. LOL. He is so powerful that he would just leave me sitting in mid air.





Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I think he is a great jumper but he could never compete (inconsistent). I am really not that strong, I just had to make sure that I had a good hold on his mane as he started taking off. Thank God for neck reining. He travels so rough that loping bareback, I always have to have one hand holding onto the mane anyway so only 1 hand free for steering. Every once in a while, he would take off before I was ready and I would fall off every time. LOL. My mom was taking pictures and she deleted all of those before I even got a chance to see them. ;p
