Ugh, I could have used some adhesive last weekend at the horse show. My sister polished the insides of my tall boots and slicked up the saddle! My inner thighs still hurt, lol. Thankful it was only three hunter under saddle classes, but geez, I definitely felt the burn. She will NOT be in charge of show prep from now on!

Ive heard it called "sit a buck", "bareback dollar race", "dollar races"......I think everyone has the ability to use hairspray, in which case it isn't an advantage. What IS an advantage is if I enter my gaited horse in one of 'em, and while everyone else is bouncin around, I'll be glidin along at a fox trot

awwwww you guys are making dressage shows sound like no fun!! haha we dont have a bareback class!!!! :(
but hairspray is genuis!!! when i played lacrosse we used to spray hairspray on the bottom of our shoes to make us not slip....
i dont think its cheating, its all in good fun right? haha
i dont think i would ever spray my jods with hairspray though... i love my riding pants... and oh dear! it could get on the saddle! that would be terrible! lol
now i want to go talk to some dressage show commitees about a bareback class... haha i dont think many people would go for it...

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

^^ That would certainly be a good test of a good rider though. Doing a dressage test with no saddle.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

The trick is to get your horse SWEATY! (and where shorts)

We use (some people on my team, not me) saddle tight and stuff for XC. I don't think it would be cheating

From my experiance once the hairspray is "dry" it won't get on your saddle and it has never stained or done anything to my breeches, even though I would spray it directly on them.

Ya know, I'm not sure on that one.

I do a few bareback classes myself. Our club does every event bareback as well. Even bareback cutting, but not a lot of people do that one LOL. I like to Bareback barrel race but I don't go as fast, considering my balance sucks majorly. If I'm going to go bareback I'll probably do rail classes or trail. I tried bareback hunter once but it was difficult. Like I said, my balance sucks

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I have only seen bareback classes in Gymkhana shows and some of the congress world breed shows. I've also need one or two at a fair but NEVER ridden in one which makes me VERY sad . I know of a series that a judge & his wife are putting on at their ranch and they might have bareback classes so I am VERY excited so enter in some of those!

I would just die on Aidan in a BB class, no desire to ride his broom handle of a class in a BB class LOL
