Mounting bareback

err...trying to, I guess.

Brooke is 17.2+. I barely got on her [there was a moment where I was 'stuck' hahaha]

My friend needed a box to get on, hahahahahaha

When my friend and I are riding Arthur double bareback, I get on, and then she steps on my boot toe and jumps on. Works quite well :). Gorgeous horse, btw!

That's a good idea! We'll have to try it next week [assuming I ride Brooke...the other horses don't take too kindly to being ridden bareback, as I found out the hard way].

Thank you, I love her [and wish she was mineee]

You guys must be tall or very agile cuz I can't even jump on my 14hh horse! Need a bucket:) when I was younger I had no problem getting on a horse or swinging my leg up and jumping on. Now that I'm older, my hip would probably fall out of my uterus!

I actually think getting off when you are on double bareback is way harder than getting on

Amen to that!

I rode my little guy bareback in a halter (on a whim, he'd never done either before, at least with me...) a couple of weeks ago, and had a heck of a time getting 14 hands off the ground! I eventually ended up putting him in a knee-deep ditch and hopping on from the bank - it still took 3 tries! Yes, I am a wimp with zero athletic ability!

He was such a gent over it, though... if someone had been trying to drag/throw themself bodily up onto my back I'da had a small fit!

Mine was easy, I just swung my leg forward over her neck and slid off hehe. I think my friend may have gone backwards off Brooke's butt, but I wasn't really watching.
