    I rode her bareback today and she was AMAZING!!! I'm super proud. She seemed a little weirded out by what I was doing at first, so I got on the mounting block and leaned on her back then swung my leg over while she was tied up. I didn't actually get on at that point becuase I wasn't sure how she would react to being tied up and sat on. =P
    Then I got her bridle out and put it on her, untied her and hopped on. I haven't ridden bareback in awhile so I was a little off balanced but each time I started getting off balance she would stop dead and not move again until I told her to. She did have her ears back towards me at first and she was being a little reactive (kinda lurching forward) to my legs but she settled down really easily after a few minutes.
    She even, when I asked her to trot, offered me this lovely little jog that was totally great. Usually she springs into this huge really bouncy trot that I'm sure would have been bad news bareback since it's pretty hardcore in a saddle.
    I think my favorite part was how she was so in tune to my balance that she was stopping when I was a little off. I find it really amazing that this same horse, only maybe 10 months ago, bucked a girl off because the saddle was slipping and here she is, saving my rear from the ground. Too cute.

    Edit: I'm pretty sure I'll be riding her tons more bareback now because I also discovered that she has an amazing back for it. =P Her withers are just small enough and her back is just wide enough to be perfect. =D

    That's great that you had such a good experience with her. That is definitely nice to have a horse that will just stop when you start to go off to one side. Small withers and wide back is definitely the way to go when riding bareback ;p I am so proud of you and her. Good job!!

    I had my horse xpert friend do it for me first to see how she would react. Turns out my mare prefers it. She hates her saddle! :)
