Lately, I've been doing most of my riding bareback. I guess I'm just getting lazy! Haha I do, however, break out the saddle about once every two weeks or so for a schooling sort of ride and I ride in a saddle when I trail ride, which happens about once a month.

Occasionally. I rarely/never do it in the winter, but I might do it about once a week/once every two weeks in the summer. I always use a bareback pad, never totally bare. I like to use it when I need to get my horse out to move but don't want to work him much, ie a light day.

Relativly often.

In winter we rarely had time to saddle up and ride so I would just get reins and hook em on the horses halter and hop on, I would like to start doing alot more bareback riding this summer, though!

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

I try to ride bareback at least once a week. I don't like using a bareback pad unless my horse is madly shedding.

I try y best to ride bareback as often as I can, but during the winter it gets harder because the horse is more frisky than normal and more oten than not when they are fresh and bareback they are all prone to bucking or throwing fits so it helps e to have the saddle just in case that happens. Plus, their fur and mud will ruin any clothes I have....And although I don't much care about my clothes, In this economy I can't afford to keep replacing jeans after every bareback ride.

However, in the summer I ride every horse bareback every day except for the days they get off from working or if I am practicing just before a show.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
