I ride western (obviously! Lol) so I jump and do most of my crazy stunts bareback. Honestly, I don't know if I could do all if it on a different horse. Well, not as fearlessly. I probably trust my mare TOO much, if that's even possible. Oh, well. She loves me.

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

Good on you OP its such an awesome experience getting the confidence up to ride bareback.

I ride bareback often mostly just because I can't be bothered to carry all my gear way out to the paddock lol. I love how much my riding has improved from all my bareback riding.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P

Bareback is awesome. I'm not as good at it on my current horse, but my last show horse had the PERFECT bareback body. Bo had just high enough whithers and didn' have a rounded barrel while my current mount is basically like sitting on a barrel... Anyway I confess to riding Bo entirely bareback and bridless! Yay for WP horses. I never had to worry about speed and I barely touched my reins with a bit in anyway. I plan on working on this with my Ryan this summer! But anyway I'm glad you got over your fear and got on bareback! It's really not that scary once you realize the basics of balancing. You'll enjoy it, but you'll be sore!
