I love it, haven't gone that high yet lol.
It's a good pic. How do you go that high bareback? As I would find landing hard.. x

I did lots of smaller jumps before I tried to go to that height. Practice two point without stirrups to strengthen your ability to do it bareback in mid-air, and you can try to practice it bareback on the flat too, it's just very difficult. Grab some mane! When you land, lean back and try not to slam them hard in the back with your butt.

Definitely keep at the bareback- it helps improve your balance immensely.

I live to ride bareback. Although for some reason it always does something wacky to my position when I jump - I feel secure, I land soft, but I tense my upper body up weird. Anytime I try to work on it, I end up doing some other silly thing
