I used to just grab a hunk of mane and vault like I do in MG... But now my horses have no mane, so I have to use a neck strap... But that twists when I put weight on ti and I land on my butt. lol. So now I walk Bundy up to the fence, and he stands really patiently while I scramble :]

I just grab their mane, and swing on up!
Took me a while to get the hang of it though.

oh this topic is so funny! But I shouldn't laugh... I'd have everyone in stitches if I were to put up a video of me getting on my 14.1 mare bareback. I usually just stand on something that's at least 30cms tall and kinda scramble on lol

lol this is a funny topic lol
i dont have to option of climbing on a fence to get on bareback because my horse has that sense of humor so when i have my leg over his back and im just about to sit he moves...lol that was really funny how i learned that the hard way ANYWAY
so i have to swing on, and it took me forever to learn how to lol i grab some mane in my hand then stand with my back touching his neck then i run and jump swing my leg over his back and then pull my butt up...it takes some muscles to do that im not going to lie, pretty soon my horse is going to start moving when i swing on...i had better start practicing some more so im more experianced just in case...

Our horses know our secrets; we braid our tears into their manes and whisper our hopes into their ears.
