Hiya! has anyone out there galloped bareback?
my horse had been lame for over a year and he is fully sound! wooo!! am very excited for trying new things with him again. i have been riding bareback for a year maybe now, just in the menage and nothing over a 2 and a half foot jump. but i really want to start hacking bareback. i have walked and collected cantered out bareback. have you got any tips for hacking out bareback and galloping?
i can gallop, have never really been a dressage kind of person, more a hacking kind of girl lol. have felt safe galloping for ages now and fancied challenging myself. thank you very much you lovely people:D
P.S. i am 16, our horse (me and my mum share) is 16.2hh and appaloosa x cob. we have had him for 5 years and i've been riding for 6 maybe?
Ah to be 16 again (Im only 22 lol) I have nothing to contribute to your question except be safe. Sometimes when you get horses to a full gallop -real gallop it becomes quite hard to stop them. Anyway, I'm sure you already know that, so be safe and I hope someone on here can help you out! :)
Sure have, in large paddocks and along the beach one handed might i add LOL!
It's fun, you just ride like you do and enjoy it!
hehe lol you funny people, and i ALWAYS wear a helmet:) i think i'm just going to have to go for it, will let you know how it goes
When i was your age I never used a saddle on my horse. I would ride my horse all day long on trail by myself or with friends. I galloped and jumped anything in site. Only once did he take me by surprise by galloping nonstop down a very long hillside. I miraculously stayed on and only suffered some slight bruising in my crotch lol. I miss those days when I was fearless and strong. Have fun and be as careful as you can ;) Of course if you were my daughter I might have to offer different advice.
Do it fairly regularly! Relax, and enjoy!
I used to be able to canter bareback
I can still canter bareback on my Arab/Saddlebred. He has lovely gaits. I have only walked and trotted with my Paint horse as his gaits are a little more animated and he has tons of speed.
Sorry, I guess what I mean is you have to feel confident on your horse then just relax and let it happen. When I was a kid, I too used to just jump on any horse and ride bareback down hills or anywhere. I was fearless then but now I know what can happen if something goes wrong so I am more careful than I was then.
