Mouse and I attempting to canter bareback
Yess, I know, we look sloppy. =P Greenish rider, green horse, and no instructor. :lol: I'm just so proud that I actually did it!! Mouse seemed to love it for the most part as well. It's just so funny that....I can do it bareback, but I have trouble doing it with a saddle. :? :-( Mouse is doing so much better, I can't even begin to express. She's filling out more and more each time I see her, and getting her sassy spirit back. It's amazing what a little love will do. And, when I went to put her back in the paddock with her buddies, instead of running away from me right after like she normally does, she came back up to me and put her head in my chest. It made me wanna cry....I was just so happy to see her feeling so much better. Anyhoo, enough of my's the video. Please, no negative comments, we're trying our hardest. <3

Better than me cantering bareback. I look (and feel) like a leach, digging my heels in to stay one. just terrible!

Aww, I'm sure you look just fine! Practice practice! Maybe try on different horses? You should see me doing this in a saddle.....icky, icky, icky. Especially a western saddle.

If that is sloppy....then uh oh I am in trouble!!! I feel like I am going to kill myself riding my horse at a WALK bare back.

Congrats! I just tried bareback for the first time on my mare about a week ago. I had my boyfriend walk beside me and then I tried a trot. It was so weird and I felt so unbalanced, but I was giggling the whole time! It was fun! :D

You did good!! Looks like you had fun!!!! Actually, that wasn't sloppy looking at all! :)

I can't believe that I ever rode bareback. After coming back to riding 20 some odd years later...WOW. I am sure NOT stable.

Haha, thanks a bunch guys! <3 Made me feel a biiiit better about it. I thought I looked sloppy, but yeah. =P I think it's super fun to canter bareback....I can't wait to try a gallop!!

haha, think you guys look wonderful! Especially for not having a trainer.

Me? The first time I tried cantering bareback, I slid off three times in a row.

Ofcourse, I was riding Xcia, our arabian mare who just happens to think it's halarious to give you her nastiest, bounciest trot right before taking off like a rabbit in a canter :3
