Bareback for the first time
 
I went out to go see my new filly today (We bought her 8/11/07!) becuase she was getting shod. After all four hooves were trimmed and shod, I took her in the arena, and she just had a nylon halter with a lead with a stud chain hooked to it. (Just clipped to the O ring not over the nose) And everyone was laughing at me becuase I couldn't get home in time to change, so I was wearing a halter top, short shorts, and flip-flops! But I just fooled around with her and I did what I love to do, I uncliped the lead shank and just walked around and she would follow me and I did a little eye pulling and Pat Parelli. But I really wanted to ride and I was wondering if I should get on her bare back? Then I thought you know, she's my horse and I have to bond with her so, I went over to a bunch of dirt piled in the corner of the arena.(Becuase I can't get on bareback on flat ground, it's embarrassing!lol) And I clipped on the lead shank(again not using it) and I grabbed a bunch of mane and leaped up and I made it! Yeah! :D It was fun it was the first time on Janie Belle bareback, the ferrier went "well would ya look at that!" Oh my it was very redneck and Janie Belle tried to eat my flip flops but it was fun. lol :lol:

wow! very brave! I just started riding my guy bare back too... Very fun. I just keep begging him to not trot (especially trot and turn) :shock: . But it's nice to wear shorts in this weather :D.

Haha, aw. Bareback riding is so fun.
And don't worry, your not the only one who rides in short-shorts and flip flops or can't get on from the ground. lol.

Just today I went for a bareack ride. First time in a long time. I try not to do it alot anymore, because it kills my back (broke my tail bone a few years back),

Nothing beats a good bareback gallop though. =]
And jumping bareback is always fun too.

it's fun cantering bareback...we rode bareback all the time in the summer, it would be a good 45 min to the sand pits from the barn, we take our lunches in back packs and woulds spend most of the day swimming in the pools with the horses....

I usually always ride bareback, cause we own a big property and i have the job of rounding up the horses, for the daily mustering before i go to school.

I love riding bareback in the winter. I never use a saddle for those months because it is warmer to ride that way, and I am lazy with all my winter gear on. The girl who rides my gelding practices her jumping bareback all winter! She is awesome :)

I like walking and loping/cantering bareback - don't like trotting so much :)
