You guys are lucky your horse lets you ride bareback. I ride Janie bareback all the time but when I get on her or I put my legs on her she swishes her tail, pins her ears back, and alot of times she tries to bite me. But I ride her anyway!

Oh well that's different plus she's a mare they tend to be moody.

Another bareback tip is to ride with a saddle first but drop your stirrups. By giving up your stirrups you still have some security of the saddle but you get a better feel for your horse's movement.

*Some horses are nervous about having stirrups dangling at their sides so lay them accross the saddle so they don't bang around.

Before I got my horse, I always would do a lot of no stirrup work in lessons. On this one horse I would ride, I found his canter a lot smoother when I would ride without stirrups, and I would do that almost all the time.

I've ridden my horse bareback a few times and we enjoy it. I find I get a deeper connection with her bareback than I do with a saddle.
