Exclamation Riding Bareback

Hi!
I am new to the "Horse Forum" so be patient with me if i'm posting in the wrong section or anything.

OK to my question (don't laugh) ........



Can guys ride bareback? Doesn't it like, hurt too much? Does anyone have any photos or anything of yourself or someone you know (who is a guy) riding bareback?

Thanks everyone!
Xoxo

I would imagine that riding bareback for a guy is about like it is for women, you just have to find the right position to make sure nothing gets crushed against the withers.

Native Americans used to ride bareback all the time.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

yes, males can ride bareback. A "shark-fin" withered horse may not be the best horse for one to choose, but the idea is to maintain a proper seat which means you aren't bashing your tender bits into the bony protrusions in the first place.
