I ride bareback all winter, because the horses keep you warm:) back when horses were used all the time, they didn't have saddles and rode bareback. I think it a great way to learn better balance and stay in sync with your horse. You can bond and get a better feel for each other when you are bareback.

Lol that lady must have not understood the concept of weight displacement and for a matter of fact any weight at all...because my saddle is at least 25lbs not including adding myself on there and any saddle bags that I attach to it, so if you ask me that's a lot worse for horse and yet they are still okay with that humm lol

I ride bareback more often than with a saddle. It's a lot of fun and I feel more balanced and in tune with my horse. And I feel like she's lighter and more responsive riding bareback. Plus it's easier in the summer to just hop on and ride instead spend time tacking and un-tacking, and in the winter she keeps me nice and warm.

If you're going to go shopping afterward, be forewarned that people walking behind you will know you've just ridden a horse bareback! LOL

I ride bareback for many reasons.
1) helps with my balance
2) helps with my connection with my horse
3) My posture. It fails in the saddle so I ride bareback to try and make it better in saddle.
4) It's way more fun
5) I am not very advanced, so I really need to work on it. - with speed that is. My balance is OK.
Reasons I use the saddle:
1) I feel more secure
2) I usually use this when I trot and lope
3) shows

Well, I vote bareback! Once I get better with speed on bareback, I am all for it. Other than that, the saddle would be like new for years and years. Haha!
