My Daughter Riding Bareback and Bitless

My 13 year old daughter riding our Magpie bareback and bitless with a rope halter and lead rope. I really am a firm believer that this is the best way to get a really good feel for the movement of the horse under you and gain a good seat. I think everyone should spend some time loosing the saddle and just climbing on.

Lovely video herdbound! Your daughter looks like she's becoming a wonderful rider.

And I agree about losing the saddle. I love it because you actual can feel the horse pick up and set down their hooves. I rode bareback once after months of trying to learn how to balance myself at the trot. Best thing I did for my balance.
Not to mention the muscles you find when you're on bareback

I love riding my mare bareback and bitless. I noticed she's a lot more respectful of me and cooperative, backing better, listening more to my legs, etc.

Magpie is 16.3 hands high so she is pretty big :)

You should teach your horse how to bend so she isn't pulling so much. Other than that awesome!

I ride bareback and bridle-less, not bitless bridleless so that was interesting to watch I usually ride with all my tack (Saddle, bridle, bit) or without anything on the horse,nothing at all just me and the horse :) There is nothing like it and it helps your balance etc... and tests your relationship with the horse since you don't have reins just mane to hold onto.

I know she has a very stiff neck...I am working on her flexion issues...Magpiw was a horse that I wanted really bad because her former owner neglected her severely...in fact she has scars on her legs where she was attacked by a hog and she had half of her front left hoof sliced off by stepping on an old jar in there pasture...she just didn't belong in that environment...so when the oportunity to buy her came about I snatched her up. And then about a year later I also had the opportunity to get her buddy Rain from that same farm. She is a great pleasure horse...parade horse....great temperment...really couldn't ask for a better horse :)
