We are doing good....no problems other than Sonny is high on energy because I haven't been able to ride him as much.
Jeddah, riding bareback does not hurt the horse's back...I think I have enough fat in my butt to give it a nice cushion
The only thing that will cause soreness is if you are bouncing when trotting, etc....but not if you are riding quitely on their back
Dusty, I just think that it works the horse up more and get's them emotionally crazy. That's just my view on it...and it's been that way for a long time even before I liked Parelli....but it's just my opinion. Also Sonny gets bored easy...so to me it would be very boring and he'd hate it...
