I do think that a strict bareback sport is a little unneeded, as (almost) any other sport can be done bareback. But it would be fun for people who prefer bareback or don't have a saddle.

That's true, but you can't compete bareback in pretty much anything unless it's a "fun" show. And that's what I think we need. More openness for those who want to show off their bareback skills.
