Lol oh goodness TBs! My mare got smart enough to when I would ask for collection she would cry blody murder and limp like her leg was broken! So I called the vet out to see her and she asked me to get off, gave her the check up and vet said she was fine. I put her back into the pasture assuming there was something the vet missing and suddenly! she's perfectly fine and ran off bucking! oooo this was me >>/

I can fall off much easier when bareback does that count?
Vida is very uncomfortable to ride bareback, she is narrow and bony. I do ride with my feet out of the stirrups
I used to have a widebody quarter horse mix I could ride bareback much easier.

I do everything bareback... My arab pony gets girth gall so i've had periods of a few monthas when I can only ride bareback.

I do stockwork, jumping, dressage, (he has a killer extension bareback!) rollbacks, rise trot, mounted games, sporting, long trail rides, swimming, we used to double a lot but now we're a bit heavy, lol.

hahaha. My TB did that too, but I didn't call the vet. I got off and walked him for a little, then started back to the stall... He was fine once he started out of the arena, lol.

Bareback-I can do walk, trot, canter right now. Twende isn't very comfortable to ride bareback...he's narrow and bony, but I love to do it even if it isn't very comfortable.

I can walk & jog bareback w/o a bridle. I am not comfortable enough yet to lope without one. We gotta work on it some more.

I have never experienced any bucks or rears while bareback. =]

Anything I do on the saddle -- which isn't much. W-T-C-Gallop. I don't jump unless it's something in my way. I can ride out bucking and rearing as long as it's not psycho-horse. I wish I trotted more bareback, but I get tired and quit instead of pushing myself.

Bareback sure is good for all the muscles and ensuring a good seat!

I am excellent at sitting the "stand"!
Very good at dismount!
Do walk and a little trot.
(I worry my seat bones are poking into my horses back, I like my saddle)

I can walk.

That's literally all I've done bareback, but I've only ridden bareback once. XD
