Wow

First bareback lesson today. On my horse. He was great, as always when someone is riding him, he even for most of the ride had one ear on me. I was also doing an english seat versus western (which is what I ride) and my instructor said I had an excellent seat for an absolute beginner English rider. His withers actually arent as high as I thought they were, but he has NO mane, so it really nerve wracking for the first few minutes to not have anything to hold on to. But now my butt hurts, I used a lot of leg on him, and its been awhile since I've done that. I commend you all who do it on a regular basis.

My legs always hurt after, but my butt doesn't because I sit back Western style. I love how you feel part of your horse when you bareback.

It's really good for your hamstrings. You're constantly gripping with your upper legs. It's a pretty good workout if you're barebacking for a couple of hours
