bareback for the first time?

Hi everyone. So, im thinking about riding my horse Moses today bareback. This would be the first time I've rode him bareback and to be honest, im quite nervous. He was just castrated a few months ago and he still has some of the attitude from then, and I really don't want for him to jump after a mare in the arena, which will make me fall off. Also, he is very sensitive, so if I try to cling my legs around him he will take off, thinking im asking him to go. Do you have any tips? Thank you!

I have a mare that's pretty sensitive to leg pressure so I hold on more with my thighs than my calves.

Best advice I can think of if your nervous is start slow. Use your first ride as a confidence builder and have fun with him today. Start at the walk doing suppling excersizes and lateral movements to get him listening and relaxed. Then if he feels responsive and at ease move him up to a trot doing the same thing. If he has a bouncy trot or you start to get tense and nervous don't feel bad only doing small trot seessions with walk transitions to regain your composure or balance. Don't canter if you don't feel comfortable or in control, well don't trot if you feel that way either . No point shattering your confidence, go slow, only do what you feel comfortable and confident in and the more you practice bareback the better your balance, control and trust in your horse will get!
