Question Questions about bareback.

So my trainer has set up my next few lessons as bareback lessons. I've already had one lesson and so far it was my favorite lesson. I felt a lot more in touch with the horse and it gave me a little more awareness of myself and my balance.


But... my girly parts were not thrilled the next day. Lets just say.. I had some bruising and swelling. I'm going to ask my train on Saturday.. But does anyone have any tips about keeping your seat? Tips to prevent bruising? Anything would be great. I feel like a complete noob. Haha

Practice lol ... that's all that will really help with a tad bit of pain killers for the soreness. :)
Just focus on the movement so you can move with him/her. The more you get the rhythm the better it will get :)

I am going to assume you are on a high withered horse, because I have never had a problem such as you described. I would suggest moving back a bit so you aren't sitting directly on a bone.

Yes I never had that problem but my girl is pretty mutton withered and cushiony! If you have a sharkfin your sitting on I would sit back a little further.

Never had a problem like you're describing, even when riding fairly high-withered horses... maybe just practice nd you'll eventually either 'toughen up' and et used to it or you'll figure out how to sit best... or something...

Good luck!

Wear a maxi pad. One of my horses is very high withered, and I will wear a super absorbency or a really thick maxi pad. It helps a LOT. And you will have an entire package, so you can wear one every time you ride bareback :) good luck! I hope it gets better soon- that's noooooo fun!

I never had that problem... but I sit like I would in my westren saddle so I sit back a little more then I would in the saddle its more comfertable. My QH is pretty nice to sit on and so im my 3 year old but my 4 year old and my old horses like my TB and my Tb/Clyd cross had their spins a little out and wasnt as comfy but if you adjust a little to find the best place.

Well I rode again today and the horse they had me on both weeks def. High withered. So I just paid more attention and sat a bit farther back. We didn't do as much posting.. mostly working on balance and movement and working on energy for movement. It was another really good lesson. I don't understand why I'm not as scared riding bareback lol as compared to having a saddle underneath me and stirrups keeping me on. But I think its really improving my balance and my posture and my connection with my legs. In terms of keeping them long and not drawing up. Idk I'm rambling now haha
