    Wa la!



    Horrible camera angle...his head isn't that big I swear haha. My friend and I worked with him today, and he didn't really mind...he was a little unsure at first but didn't react and shortly after fell asleep and relaxed his back leg lol. Not what I was expecting...

    I did exactly what DuckDodger suggested when I bought my boy, but more as a "Hello, we're new to each other, let's take this politely." I only found out *after* the fact that he had never actually had anyone on him bareback and it WAS brand new to him. Oops. Works well though!

    I'm still laughing on this one! Palomine, you are always cracking me up!

    My horse doesn't like my butt bones digging into his back. He'll walk with me on bareback but the whole time I can feel his muscles twitching so I know he's uncomfortable. When I get off and press along his back, he's definitely sore so no more bareback for us.

    You two look great, OP!

    I think bareback is like anything else we train for and the horse will get used to it. My horses are all great with bareback riding, although I always use my Parelli bareback pad to avoid a sweaty crack!

    I use the pad when we are just riding around the ranch and saddle up for longer rides. I w/t/c and gallop bareback, and I can post and 2 point bareback. I like the physical challenge, the closeness, and the informality of it.

    Good luck with your horse and riding, Shellybean!
