I feel like it makes me a better rider, I can feel her and it's like we have a better connection. In the summer I ride in my bikini, lol. My hubby just shakes his head at me and he took this pic while I was out one day. I live in south Mississippi and it's hot, I don't care! LOL Her body looks weird in this pic btw, her legs are crazy.
    What part of MS are you from mtngrl? I am in the Columbus/Starkville area, and I agree its HOT out here haha

    OP, I ride bareback all the time! Passed by BO giving a lesson the other day and she asked if I still remembered how to use a saddle lol. One reason I love it is that it's a lot cooler for me and for Drifter and whenever we feel like taking a break in one of the ponds we can just go right in! I feel a lot closer with him when bareback too. I can feel if he is relaxed, or getting worried and take the appropriate measures. When I first started my legs HURT, but since I first got Drifter a month ago I've been riding bareback at least 4 times a week 2 hrs per day and I can see a huge difference in balance and leg tone.

    ^^^Yeah bareback hurts at first! Just like riding nonstirrup does at first haha

    We call it the 'gypsy' position round here when peoples legs go forward into the chair position, but tbh I think its easier to ride bareback like that so I don't really care what people call me!! You see little kids riding like that when they first start because it feels more sequre too

    I live near McComb. I actually live out in the middle of nowhere, about 5 miles from the LA state line, but that's the closest town of any size.

    I love riding bareback, I really think it helps you tune into your horses movement and helps you get that velcro-butt seat :) haha. My mare actually likes bareback better I think, since I can cue her so much more with my seat.
