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
