    Barney, didnt like it at first. He kept backing up when I kicked. He blew out a breath of air as if to say "Fine! Im going!" and slowly walked in after that he was swimming around with me on his back. He loved it. But when he gets four feet on the ground he loves to gallop out of there, but of course he gets back in.

    I go swimming on horseback all the time in the summer and spring! Though... I hate getting my saddle wet, so I usually take the saddle off before I ride and go bareback.. It's really fun to do cannonballs off my girls butt (she just stands there and is like.. ''whatever''... Lol)... and it's even more fun to get my girl going in pretty deep water and slide off her butt, hang onto her tail and be pulled through/across the lake!

    We only ever swim with a bridle or halter on, no saddles :] Sometimes a neckstrap to hold on to, my horses have no mane!

    Angel leaguer I foudn that it's quite different... My pony hates mud and puddles, yet he is happy to go into the dam and swim, sometimes of his own accord.

    I don't think I could do it with my mare, she's stubborn. But I have always wanted to try it!

    It's Amazing!!! So much fun, and if you have a ton of space you can swim next to them and get back on with no effort...It's a good time. I don't know that I would do it when its cold out though.

    OMG! That sounds soooo fun! There is a summer camp near me that does that. I want to go there and try!

    I haven't actually swam, but I have crossed rivers on horseback.

    Fir all of you who haven't swam, you need to. :) It's a thrill.
    We went for a weekend camping trip and my trainer's horse just jumped in all by himself. It was pretty neat.
