I ride bareback as more than I do with a saddle, so, obviously, I can do everything bareback that I can in a saddle. Jumping, bucking, rearing, running, quick maneuvering, all of that is no problem.
I have all of my students do a lot of riding bareback, it's so good for balance and strength and being able to feel the horse.

My favorite tyhin gto do bareback is play in the water swimming withthe horses and splasheing off. I like to put my horse in water that's lapping over his back and get up and dive off him. Like a little horseie diving board.

I like to do barrels and poles trainning bareback. They can really bend aroun them better with out the saddle preventing them form bending really well.

I can trot & canter. I can also post the trot (good for leg muscles!) & I can jump about 2-3ft. I haven't jumped bareback in awhile though, so I might need to start practicing. LOL. I've galloped bareback before as well. & HorseShoersGirl that is very fun! I've only done that twice in the summer, but it feels very good when 'ya get splashed.

I've only ridden in a saddle about a handful of times for almost over a year now.
I can w/t/c/g, jump anything, some dressage, go anywhere on a trail/road.
I've also been on horses I've never ridden before and decided to go bareback, green horses, horses that weren't broke yet, horses that are known to rear and buck, horses that have explosive spooks, or have a habit of refusing jumps.

I just think there's a bit more excitement while bareback.
The only bad part that I have noticed about riding bareback is that there's no where to put your lunch while out on a trail ride. I can't even count how many times I was handed a coke and a McDonalds bag full of food and told to go take some customers out on a trail ride, and come to find out about 5 minutes down the trail I got no where to put my drink! Lol

Bareback is not my specialty, mainly because I have the worst balance ever.

But, I can do a few things:
Walk, Trot, Canter
Still working on the gallop.
Barrels, Poles, Flags, Keyhole
Post....for a few strides or two.
Ride a buck(but not a rear...haha)

And, I am now perfecting a reining routine bareback on my dad's horse. It is sooooo cool!

Haha. The majority of time im on a horse it's bareback except when I am legit training for an event. I work at an awesome barn in the summer. Unfortuantely I don't get to bring my babies, I get to ride basically everyday anyways and it's great. Me and my friends have the tendency just to go on a nice hour or so long hack and even if we're riding in the ring, usually we're too lazy to tack up all the way so we end up bareback. I love it. It has seriously made a MUCH MUCH better and more confident rider. That being said I can...

Trot (sitting and posting)
Jump full courses (highest course i've done bareback was 3'6")
Highest single jump i've don'e bareback was 4'3" :] I was sooo freaking proud. Haha
I've gone bareback for a little bit of cross country. Nothing huge though cause as much as I like to have fun, I also like to be safe, and when i'm riding bareback, well actually in general when im riding, I don't usually wear a body protector
I've done all sorts of games bareback (barrel racing, pole bending, relay races, australian pursuit etc.)
I've played polocrosse bareback. Haha. Wasn't the most successful thing i've ever tried, but I was on a smallish poney so I was just able to pick the ball up off the ground without sliding off.
I've worked dressage bareback a few times but usually when I ride dressage im seirous about it so I usually spend the time to put on full tack.
Me and my friends like to race bareback occasionally as well.
I'm sure there's more, I can do just about everything I can do in a saddle bareback, but i'll stop with that. Lol

But yeah, in case you couldn't tell...i LOVE bareback
