Thanks SO much, Ernie!

First of all...SO GREAT THAT IT WORKED OUT FOR YOU! I suppose the trainer does (usually) know best, and must have seen that you had the talent to learn in this more difficult manner, a HUGE compliment to you, IMO!! She or he was correct!

I don't know if I HAVE the talent that YOU have, but am definitely going to speak to my trainer regarding her opinion about it...seems like a great idea....how many lessons did you take bareback before gaining the ability to balance relatively easily while sitting the trot? Have you read any articles about this type of training? Ill do some research on my own & see how often this is teaching method is used! It simply seems like such a great idea, I'll be surprised if more trainers aren't doing it!

Love to see your riding! Do you have any videos? I'll let y'all know what my trainer says about letting me try this method! Thanks again!

No videos yet, I tend to rid alone or with just my trainer. I took probably 10 lessons or so and still can't sit perfectly but made a HUGE improvement. I can also canter bareback well! I've never heard of any other trainer doing this but like you said it really is great, BUT you do have to know how to ride well enough to be safe!!!

Thanks for the compliments! I have only been riding for about 9 months, but now i'm running my own summer camp and my trainer lets me come out and ride any of her horses any time COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE so I must have made quite the improvement. :)

Oh and one more thing, I just have to say my trainer is so amazing! She trusts me so much and has taught me more things than most trainers do in two years! I absolutely love to go riding and learn something new every week!! My Trainer is just great!! (not trying to brag srry!)

I love the idea of learning to ride bareback first, now I need to talk to my trainer and see what she thinks :)

Bareback kind of does suck... but it's worth it!

I used to ride bareback all the time, w/t/c, gallop and jump. Now, if only I had kept that up after I sold my ol' faithful trusty steed!

I built up enough courage the other day to ride my barrel/rope horse bareback for a bit. We trotted a little bit just to bring back my muscle memory a bit and get used her her movements bareback, and then we took a stab at the barrel pattern.

You can even see that my seat is almost BETTER bareback than with the saddle.

^^^ Kick A--!! You did AWESOME! That would be amazingly fun...riding out in an open, grassy-ish field, running the barrel pattern, either bareback OR with saddle! You and your horse look great AND, most importantly, you look like you are BOTH having an awesome time! Thanks for the vid!!!
