I did not say to buy an english, I just said to jump in your western saddle 40 more lbs won't hurt your horse, but if you want to do the bareback thing then go ahead.

You don't have to give me a run down.
You asked for advice either take it or leave it I don't need you to 'compete' with what I am saying whether you are or you're not.

I was simply suggesting you ways how you might be able to jump your horse bareback and stuff, The way I do things and how you think of it is entirely up to you, I bet you don't even believe I can jump without gripping and I can lift myself off my horses back and come back down without "land heavily" on my horses back :roll:

Next time I might just keep my mouth shut because you obiusly know what you're talking about and I can't understand why you wanted all this help from other people and when they help you go judging what they do and questioning.

Thanks.

I almost was going to say the same thing last night, ask for my help and then shoot it down, if you have your heart on something then don't ask people for what they think and then shoot it down and go do whatever you where going to do in the beginning, that's just a waist of my time.

I suppose you could if you do bareback alot. I understand the whole not enough money for tack thing...I herd our horses in an english saddle every morning...lol.

I would say yeah, as long as you are secure enough. You should be able to do walk, trot, canter, and gallpo bareback first. Plus posting trot, and half seat at trot and canter well.

Good luk. I think it's a fun thing to pursue.

Its not that hard to jump bareback, as long as you stay with your horse.

-sigh- This is why I despise most horse forums. It seems like everybody is always looking for the negative in your posts and takes things totally the wrong way. That's also a huge disadvantage to trying to explaining things via the internet. Everything gets misunderstood.

Flying B- you did not say I need to get an English saddle, I agree. But you said that me riding in an English saddle with a cowboy hat, spurs and boots would look kind of funny, or something along those lines, and I merely said I had no intentions of doing so, because I would not be buying an English saddle.

Arabian Princess- I was not judging anybody's advice, I was not contradicting you, and I was not giving you a "run down". I hate how people jump to conclusions. I was merely asking some questions and trying to get more advice from you, not saying "well I know what I'm talking about and you don't know a darned thing and I bet you can't do that anyway". I just don't understand how you can lift yourself off the horses back without gripping with your knees, nor using your hands. I would like to know why- that is why I started this topic. If I knew how to do this, I would just go do it. I need advice, and as many details as possible would be appreciated. I was asking for advice on how to do what you said you can. I'm sure you can do it- I'm not the type of person to assume somebody is lying unless I have a totally good reason for it.

Flying B (again): I repeat. I was not shooting down anybody's advice, not contradicting anybody, not yelling at anybody nor being rude. I WAS ASKING QUESTIONS. I wanted to know HOW to do things. That's what I do- if I don't understand something, I ask more questions so that I can do it right and not mess it up. My questions may have sounded hateful, rude, or stuck-up but they were not intended that way.

I do wish people would not jump all down my back for something so innocent. I ask you to reconsider my questions with a new perspective and instead of jumping to conclusions about my intentions and getting so offended, offer meaningful advice. :)

Jumpit007- Thank you for your response. :) Your encouragement is appreciated- I will definitely spend several days bareback, since I have not had the time recently, before I begin my 'expedition'. =D

Also, jumps. I do not have access to official jumps. I am going to start with a long log about 6 inches in height, walk him over it some so he can get a feel for his feet, so to speak, trot him for a while, and then try cantering. We jump alot out in the pasture, just bushes and stuff, so I expect no large issues there. Once I start jumping higher, do you think it would be okay to just stack up some cedar stays, parallel to each other, then lay a log across the top to make the actual jump?

WHAT ON EARTH!
I'm sorry but I do jumping and you need a trainer. If you have never ridden english and never jumped you can't train a horse to. It requires skill. And a western saddle??? No no no. I see disaster written all over that.
Please get someone with jumping exsperience and take some english lessons first. Just for yours and your horses safety.
Yes you can jump in a western saddle but not proporly and there is no other way than proporly that isn't dangerous.
I've heard of people trying to do this by there selvevs with no english exsperience and the didn't sit right and they ended up snapping there back and being parrilized.
