My daughter loves it when there is a bareback equitation class on the schedule. She has a good seat without using hairspray but hey, why not, if it helps someone go for it -- I don't know how much it really would work to help them win but personally, I don't see it as cheating but maybe on the dollar bill under the tush it would be unfair. My problem with bareback classes is my daughter's tush is ugly afterwards. We now, change into another pair of breeches or jeans depending if it's western or english bareback (yes, we've been to shows where they specify which clothing they want the riders to wear). And we've been at shows where they don't allow the slow jogs either so that's where the hairspray would be helpful. Myself, I can't stay on a horse without a saddle that has a good oh sh** handle. I like to just walk.

OMG, just thinking about sitting anywhere NEAR Dante's sharkfin withers without a saddle makes me cringe. Ouch.  907
And now, the men of the Second Armored Division with their famous close-order swanning about.

When I was still showing my half arab I would enter BB classes. I loved them. The last BB class I entered my horse was really good going to the left then we turned to the right and the judge went out of sequence calling for walk then canter. That pissed my horse off and he bucked really hard I slid sideways. I also had no mane to hang onto because I have braided it and I forgot that I was entering this class and completely doused him with show sheen. I did stay on and finish the class that I had already thought I would lose because of the buck but we wound up winning that class. It was really awesome. I also was posting to the trot because I was also riding english at the time.

On May 29th I will riding at a show with my paint gelding and I am entering the BB class with him for the first time. Now I just need to get off of my butt and go practice that.

Each year our town has a local show and heaps of people come, but anyway the show ALWAYS has a bareback class and every year I mange to come 1st place, I win without any hair spray or anything, and my pony usally do huge buck when we go into the canter and I sit heaps of them but she did it during a bareback class once and it was the biggest one so far I sat that kicked her on and kept cantering, and then I was expeting to come last but insteed I beat all these other ponies who were perfectly behaved and collected and came first! I'd say if you can walk trot canter and do a small jump easily then I wouldn't bother using hair spray your horse might have a reation to it, but its up to you I guess...
