I like riding bareback, but don't do it much because my gelding is still young and I'd rather ride him with a saddle in case he freaks out or something, and my mare likes to buck when she's in high spirits and tends to throw in a buck after we jump sometimes (most of the time)... Lol. I can't ride english to save my life, so we just fiddle around western...

I need to ride bareback more, I got her to canter bareback once and would really love to do it again, but since my girl's so unpredictable (you never know when she'll try to throw in a good buck, and she can throw some doozies and twist in midair like a fish outta water) I don't really think I have the nerve to try it again... lol.

I used to ride our old gelding bareback a lot, though, and would gallop and canter all over the place with him.

Bareback jumping

I think your mare is beautiful! I don't have any pictures of jumping bare back but I do have pictures of me riding bareback on my gelding Captain Morgan.

I've only ridden bareback twice, once on a REALLY bouncy, fat mustang, and once on an incredibly sway backed horse with HUGE withers, who strarted rearing cause some other horse attacked him. Not very fun.
=P
I was going to jump until I found out who I was riding.. haha.
Everyone who posted pics looks greaaat! =]]

Riding bareback is fabulous. When I was younger, my parents would be working with other horses of ours (we have a stud), and I'd want to ride. Because they couldn't come and saddle up the horse I'd ride, and really since they weren't all that close it wasn't safe for me to ride in a saddle... should I come off and get caught in a stirrup iron and get dragged (worst cas scenario fo course!). So bareback was the safe alternative . And so it came about that I'd ride bareback more than in a saddle all through the time I was getting riding instruction. :P. Now, any horse that's got enough enough milage after being broken and I'm confident in to be reliable gets the bareback treatment :P. It's the perfect equine experience for balance. And jumping, well, can be tricky, but does put the icing on the cake I suppose . Riding bareback can really get you in tune with your seat and get your horse to respond to the seat with ease. Quite afew horses I've ridden have been more responsive when ridden with a saddle after being ridden barebakc a few times. :).

Here's a pic of one of our geldings being ridden bareback. Quality of pic isn't great. He's also for sale (located in Aus) and will be in the for sale section soon enough. My back isn't really that hunched, there some wind under my shirt :P.

Perhaps I was subcontiously thinking that - LOL , dunno really... Sounds like a good caption for the pic though! I always feel pretty safe on him though. But I seem to have a chronic affliction of making random facial expressions even when just trail riding :P. Am not sure wether there's any training or excersizes which'll improve that though - LOL. I think the random facial expressions are usually cause I'm talking to the horses I'm riding, there's lots of "good boys/girls/mans", "here we go"'s etc. I 'think' in that pic I might be in the process/middle of telling him he's a good boy .
