I rode bareback last night!

Now I know some of you ride bareback all of the time and it isnt a big deal... however I have never ridden April bareback before and it has been 3-4 years since I have ridden a horse bareback.

I started out riding with no irons (trying to improve my posting) and then some thought came over me "maybe I should try bareback". I was a little nervous that April wouldnt stand to let me mount... but she was great! We walked for awhile and then I picked up the trot. I got about four strides in at the lope and decided that neither of us are ready for that. April has a bunch of muscle up front and it was cool to feel it moving. My other mares (in which I have since sold) werent filled out as well when I used to ride them bareback.

I guess this excites me so much because April and I have had a love hate relationship (we just had a hard time clicking) over the last five years. I didnt sell her because I know she has the potential. Early summer of this year I was ready to throw the towel and my mom bought me a riding lesson for my birthday and great things have happened from those two hours. Now I have something to work on this winter and will hopefully we will be a new and improved team come next show season!!!!

That's exciting! I wanna ride bareback now with all this talk about it! Lol.

Oh man, I know how those 'love, hate' relationships go! Me and my gelding were going through the same thing! Only, I founf out it was the 'trainer' I picked problem. I'm glad you found a solution and hope all is well! I wanted to sell my boy a few times too, but I know we can work it out.

Riding bareback is the most amazing feeling...I ride my Arab mare bareback every chance I get(which is not as often as I would like) and I can almost feel what she is going to do. When I have a student having trouble connecting and communicating I have them try bareback.
