Now THIS is pretty cool.

Any pictures? Video? I'd love to see it.

i will try to get some pics and a video! I need to practice a bit more though, rena likes to stop when I stand up, or speed up, so one she learns just to stay the same, and I can stand for more then half a circle i'll get a video! Hahaha

I don't stand on my horses back because I think it's cool or anything I just do it because it's fun! , plus I love doing anything that involves playing with Relan. That's just me. If I fall off then that's my problem I wouldn't really care.

I would love to see that video of you trying to canter on a horses back!! That's so cool(:

I too agree that it's a horse trader scheme but I use it when I have full trust in my horse, and I also am teaching myself to roman ride ;D

roman riding... now that's what I've always wanted to do! Sadly I only have one horse, lol. But one day I want to learn that!!!

I value my life too much. I wouldn't ever trust a horse to do it. And all I do is cringe when I see other people do it.

^ I should probably be a little more nervous... but today I tried standing again, I stood there for a few seconds, lost my balance and hit the dirt and rolled as rena cantered around. Hahaha I was getting changed to get into bed tonight and about half the arena dirt fell out of my pants.

Ok now post pictures of the horse standing your back, that would impress me more

Its a gimmick for traders.

I do it because I get bored, and being a teenager I like to do stupid things. I would love to think of it as a desensitization excersize, which to a certain extent it is, but there are better things I could be doing. Ignore my grammar, another stupid teenage thing. Also a sleep deprivation thing
