No quitter here. ;) My only problem with bareback riding is that my butt and thighs are killing me afterwards!
I don't think so. The first horse I broke to ride, the first time I got on her I did so bareback. I am curious to those who want to ride bareback, even double, as to whats stopping you? Go for it! Just take your time with trotting and loping, take your time with that.
Yes! To the being extremely sore afterwards though!!
