What can you do bare back?

I was wondering what you guys can do bareback, I have started riding almost primarily bareback unless im jumping or schooling, and I can sit to leaping bucking rearing fits haha, jumps, even when he jumps the hedge in the wrong place and its like 1m :P, all paces, trot with no bounce, bending race, blah blah, heaps of stuff.

What about you?

I find that bareback is great for improving your balance as a rider. Your balance affects your horse immensely undersaddle. If you aren't balanced, the horse won't be either. I find it helps to work on my position bareback... to sit tall and relaxed, trying to form a perfect line of balance over my horse. Usually when I go bareback its just for fun and I don't concentrate on much, so I like to work on my heels, my toes and my leg position. It also works wonders for your leg muscles.

*Cantering bareback is also super fun!

I'm still not 100% confident riding bareback, but I still love it. I ride very right-sided, so it helps me to learn to keep a better balence. I can w/t/c and gallop, go over small jumps, and post to the trot. I probably couldn't sit any above the air antics though. XD

When I had well trained horses (not babies!) I used to ride them bareback which means walk, trot, canter and I used to jump them as well. That was always a load of fun. Once when in a halter and lead rope, my mare reared up and spun and I somehow actually rode that very well

I was on her near a mounting block and a friend of mine was about to climb on to double on her bareback, I guess she didn't like the idea. We ended up following her advice
