Exclamation Biting Bareback?

Moonshine is confusing me.
Under saddle he is a dream to ride with the occational "Lets go!" moments which prove very useful while practicing barrels for fun.
While being bareback he used to act compleatly fine! Did whatever I asked. Latley when I have been riding him bareback he has been nipping at my feet , which he has never done before. At a walk trot lope and gallop he is fine yet when we are stopped he nips away!
Although when he had a blanket on he acted copleatly fine so I am under the assumption that Moonshine (My cremello quarter horse, approx. 9 years of age) has sensative withers? Opions? Solutions?

It sounds like he may be in pain. The saddle and blanket can take some of the weight directly off his back, while being bareback can have you sit directly on the back bone and cause discomfort.

I'd personally get a comfortable bareback pad to ride with. Make sure it's thick enough for him to be comfortable, but thin enough you still get the bareback feel.

Hope that helps!

Yeah for sure! The bareback pad I ordered supports him. Thanks!
