Back to Back Bareback.
i watched a few videos on here awhile back of people doing a back to back bareback race. so i thought me and my sis would try it out. we did it once and it went good and my horse stood perfectly still and we got it the first attempt at it.. about a month or so later we try it again. and this is where the videos are on our second try. and i guess my girl had a mare day or something. as she did not wanna stand still! but ah well! do take into consideration i do know what we are doing is dangerous. with no halter or lead rope or bridle or anything on the horse or no helmets on us. that is a decision my mom and i made about me and she made about my sister, and we are comfortable with this. i trust my 'stang with my life everytime i ride.

Why in the world would you ever do this to your horse? your horse is a saint to tolerate that much weight and that guy of ridiculousness. You should be ashamed of yourself for putting that up on the web. Poor animal.

my sister weighs 70 pounds. and i weight 107. i'm pretty sure heavier people get on horses every day.

The horse can hold the weight fine. if she really didnt like it she would have thrown them off.
its not like they do it every day, theyre just having a bit of fun.
maybe helmets & some sort of restraint on the horse would have been a good idea,
but its their own choice. no harm done as far as i can see :)

I saw nothing threatening to injure the horse either. Perhaps for a larger weight this would get uncomfortable if they stayed there all day but it took just few minutes....
The only surprise however was that was expecting the horse to be moving somewhere.

As for being ridiculous, my wild guess would be that a horse finds us equally ridiculous when goofing around on his back and when....getting married or reading Bleak House, for example. I doubt they can even grasp the concept.

That horse is amazing. Lol. That made me laugh.

We have a class for this in my 4-H show! It's my absolute favorite class other than contesting ones. This year my friend and I got second. We do it by turning and facing each other then she stands up and I go between her legs. It's an absolute blast!

I thought that was pretty cool to be honest, and the horse seems fine with it!
Wish Lottie could stand that still :')

I found our video. Blue was being mare-ish that day and decided to try to sabotage us by moving, lol. We tried a few different times to switch, and then I told Teddi my idea and it worked. She wasn't in any pain, just didn't want to stand there. She was ready to go home.

thanks guys. i didn't see any harm in it either. and our horses probably think we're dumb jumping jumps, and roping cows. or prancing in a circle in an arena. but we do them for fun. i didn't see it anywhere than riding double. just all i did was crawl over her back while my sister laid down.

on a better note HorseOfCourse! you guys did good! it was much easier for me and my sister as she's like half my size! idk how i would do it with someone my size. and your video was the one that inspired me to try the first time! thanks for the idea =)
