Ouch! It improves your balence a lot though and streathgens your muscles. Keep it up!

:shock: Wow, the most I've gone bareback is like the arena. LOL! :P That's good for your legs & balance, though.

Aww... yeah it does hurt. But keep working at it seriously. It's one of the best things for you!

I remember once, we had to jump in the canter with no Stirrups for our balance. Good times.

I use to ride bareback all the time (some years ago), now when I do ride the horses my saddles dont have stirrups on them as i dont use them.
I dont show them under saddle (only in harness) so this is not an issue. Funny how you get use to doing something one way, I just cant get comfortable with my feet in the stirrups.

wow. 3 hours bareback? ouchie. i have a bony back thoroughbred so i will NEVER go that long without a saddle. his trot is pretty smooth though. and i figured out why my left thigh hurt so saddle bruised me! where i put the stirrup to flip over his shoulder the stirrup leather was sticking up so when i gripped it was digging into my thigh. yea, next time i think ill just take the stirrups off. maybe i won't get bruised :P
