    If it's a class, probably not. They'd probably DQ you... having said that, you can always ask the stewards.

    Hm, I think that's a big risk to take...I agree with JDI, they might disqualify you.

    Lol you might want to give the steward a heads up first. Is it a barn show? If not theyyy probably will DQ you.

    You're not serious right? Major lack of respect towards the judge. Not to sound rude but last I heard they didn't have farm kids randomly stop in the middle of a class to remove tack and finish with no gear on. What's the point??

    You've got lots of opportunities to ride bareback at home.

    The true question is why would you? You're not serious right? Major lack of respect towards the judge. Not to sound rude but last I heard they didn't have farm kids randomly stop in the middle of a class to remove tack and finish with no gear on. What's the point??

    If you are going in assuming its going to be a sucky class don't even bother entering it then.

    I would highly advise against that! I'm pretty sure that USEF rules do require a saddle, and if your show is through an organization that is USEF affiliated (or a rated show) you will get disqualified. Plus, the whole the whole stopping in the middle of the class (I assume you mean class, not show) would count as a refusal (lack of foward motion) or even going off course. The dismount off of your horse would count as a fall. And if you actually leave the ring you are automatically disqualified. I say keep working on your Eq and beat this girl!
