Things to do Whilst Barebacking

I have rode without a saddle for 2 weeks now, and most of the people at the barn think I am crazy but I have been working on getting Ebby to canter and the best way I figured out how was to ride her bareback and when I feel her feet under me, to ask her to go. Its bumpy and my legs hurt, but I think it has improved my ballence and connection with her. We have also tried riding with just a halter, which, worked, without reins, which failed.Backwards, which confused the both of us, and sideways, which I fall off.

What do you guys do bareback?

I bareback almost all the time now. Partly because my saddle doesn't fit my horse and I don't have enough money at the time to buy a good quality one that will last and fit.

I can do practically anything bareback. Canter, trot, posting trot, walk haha. I mostly trail ride at this point in time and so i've been doing a lot of hills which is really fun.

I LOVE BAREBACK! Before 2 weeks ago, I've ridden in a saddle 7 or 8 times since November. Bareback is SO great and helps you develop an independant seat. I do everything bareback: Walk, rack, trot, canter, gallop, jump, side-saddle (not in a saddle ), barrel race (but only 2 times at a canter), trail ride, swim . . . But now the trainer is making me do exercises with him and he needs a saddle for it . . . :(

I do everything bareback! I even started out my horse Buddy bareback because it just seemed easier. I used to not even be able to walk bareback and people always told me it was so hard, but I think it really helps with trust, balance, and I've noticed that the horses become more sensitive to leg cues becuase it's harder to give clear cues when you're trying to hang on with your legs at the same time.

I do everything bareback...and alot of times I even start colts bareback, at the least backing them for the first few times.

I have ridden bareback since I was little, and it feels extremely natural for me...and I do everything wtc, hills, jumping, etc...

I realllllyy wanna ride bareback but Brewer is sooo skinny and his spine sticks out and his withers are soooo ridiculously high. And I don't have a bareback pad. I havent tried it yet though cause I've been scared of his spine haha, but is it as bad as I am imagining it to be?

I don't want to do bareback on Timmy yet. He is a little bit too young and I don't want to hurt his back. He needs some more fat on him.

I love bareback. It is so much fun! It really helps with balance and posture. I used to ride mainly bareback, but now I have to get Romeo ready for fair so we have been using a saddle. I can walk/trot/canter/lay backwards on him/someone said side saddle, *Like sitting sideways?* I do that/jumop (A little bit, me and Romeo haven't really learned how to jump, but we do our own version of it! Lol).

I walk, trot, canter, and jump bareback Haven't tried the gallop yet, I'm too new to bareback riding for that yet!! Haha

Ha I <3 bareback! I can do everything that I can do in either an english or a western saddle bareback! We're working up to bridleless... haha, my mare is very good with just the reins on her neck and no bridle, but it will take a few more weeks to go with absolutely no bridle/reins. =) Jumping, cutting, reining, moving cows, posting, loping, cantering, galloping, sitting trot, barrels, poles, keyhole, rodeo, showing, you name it we can do it(if I know about it lols, not dressage. >.<) . Ha that's probably only because i'm too lazy to saddle her most of the time lols. Yay for other people who like to go bareback!
