    Real men don't ride bareback...



    It hurts to bad.

    That's just my opinion though... ;)

    Oh my, how funny I wonder how all those native Americans did it. I don't think they made athletic supporters back then

    I tried to ride my horse bareback again, but he wouldn't let me get on. :( . So I spent half an hour standing on the barrel then jumping off and getting back on, so he would get used to it. He just doesn't like it when i'm suddenly taller than him. Makes me all scary. :P .

    Yearling
    I love riding bareback, in fact I rarely ever saddle my horse.
    It took a bit of time to get back to where I could swing up on my mare (she's 15.1 and I'm 5'1" and in my late 30's) after riding very little for 4 years, but after just a few days of getting out and just cruising around I felt like a kid again.

    I love bareback riding!
    A few years ago I spent a weekend at a very expensive, well-kept lesson stable.

    That's Alijah, the mare my sister and I rode. She's a Friesian/Arab cross. Two of my favorites!

    Isn't she gorgeous? The one leading her is me, sadly enough. Just FYI, I've grown about two inches and weigh 20 pounds less now...

    We did some balance exercises with a bareback pad. That is me sitting to the trot, I believe. I couldn't have asked for a better horse to do that on. Alijah was so smooth and with a body like that, I naturally felt safe!

    But one time I was riding a little pony bareback and I began to slip. It's really hard trying to square yourself again when there's nothing to hold on to!
