Wow GypsyGirl! You and your horse must have such a great connection! Those jumps are HUGE!

I love riding bareback and I love jumping but bareback jumping is def not a strong point of mine...

Ignore my weird dress there, hehe but this is it for me!

you ladies are amazing!! I trotted for the first time bareback the other day and that was scary enough, can't imagine jumping... some day maybe. Kudos to you awesome, brave riders!

When you land, lean back and try not to slam them hard in the back with your butt.
Thanks for that, i'll keep practising and let you know
