I tried in mine and hated it. They were too stiff to ride properly with stirrups, and even bareback they were so thick that I could barely feel my horse's sides.
I tried because someone had told me that she did it sometimes. I don't know how she did that, honestly.
ETA: Also, I bought two pairs of these last year. The first pair was great, but the second pair was terribly stiff, even for walking, and rubbed my ankles and heel badly. I would buy again (they really are great muck boots and definitely waterproof), but I'd try them on in the store first if possible, or be prepared to return them.
