I've heard conflicting opinions about bareback, but I've decided not to do bareback. I don't find it comfortable, I'm afraid in case it were to be uncomfortable to my horse, and I don't like the insecurity without a saddle.

I love to ride bareback and it helps improve my balance too.

I ride with a bareback pad because I found it very uncomfortable to ride my gelding truly bareback. I definitely think it has dramatically improved my seat when riding in a saddle. I don't go out on the trails bareback, but I do w/t/c in the ring and would highly recommend it as a way to improve your riding.

I love riding bareback! The only time it actually hurt was when Shaggy was super skinny from being stalled about a year and half ago. Once he got fat again it was like riding on a couch lol Its great for strengthening your seat, legs and core as well!

Talking to your horse is sometimes all the therapy you need.
