    Hey everybody! What, in your opinion, is the best bareback pad? I have the Intrepid International currently but am considering switching it out for the ThinLine. Is the ThinLine better than the Intrepid International? Any other brands that are better and more comfortable for the horse? Much...

    I recently started galloping bareback and this is a pretty huge accomplishment for me, since I taught myself to ride and I only ride without saddle on a stubborn little buckskin mare lol. Lmk what you can do bareback!

    My horse has shark fin withers. We should rename him "Jaws". One day I would love to ride bareback on him, but I wince when I look at his high withers! Which bareback pad would you suggest?

    Hey, I’d love to get critique on this short little ride my instructor filmed. I’ve trotted bareback many, many times, but I’d like to know what I could do better. Thanks! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1h2dWxrFUyDFtUDVqU7LvSN3hkNY2sIay/view?usp=drivesdk

    Hi guys! I am so excited I found this community! I am a first time horse-owner of a Palomino Gelding (although my husband grew up on a cattle ranch so he is VERY familiar with the horse life) named Buckshot! This guy does it all! We got him from our best friends who used him on his cattle...

    G'day. I'm looking for ideas of tricks to teach my mare. I'd love it if people could comment some trick suggestions and best methods of teaching said trick/s. Would love some tips also on learning to ride bareback. I have never done so before, but my mare just broke her saddle and it'll take a...
  7. Trail Riding
    Hi, I wasn't sure what category of riding this should have come under but i mostly trail ride so here goes: My horse, as far as im aware was backed and trained purely undersaddle, and has never been ridden bareback. He doesnt have any back issues and goes soundly in a saddle, so when i hopped up...

    Hello! I am getting back into riding after 20ish years off :) so, I am pretty much a beginner rider. I recently bought the Ultra ThinLine Comfort Bareback Saddle Pad after reading so many great reviews. Problem is, I feel very unstable with it on, like there is too much padding and it's...
  9. Horse Pictures
    Guess what- I finally was able to dress up and take pictures with Tessa! I can't believe I actually have a horse to do this with (I know, I know, I've had Tessa for over 2 years but sometimes it still amazes me) My amazing friend came out and took some fantastic pictures with Tessa and I! I'm...

    For the love of baby jesus, someone please help me fix my terrible posture. But also please read this first. For as long as I can remember, I've always ridden somewhat chair seated. It tended to vary depending on what horse I was riding and what saddle I was using - sometimes my chairseat was...

    So lately I have seen people all over youtube and instagram riding with these neckropes - usually made of paracord or some kind of unbreakable rope. It has become an extremely popular tool for bareback riding and tackless riding. I can see why people like them, they're great for training your...

    Hi, If any of you have read the "Gentle Art of Horseback Riding", or "How Your Horse Wants You to Ride", you have no doubt seen that Ms. Buklin prefers to start new riders bareback, with something that she calls a "grounding strap." If you "google" "grounding strap", your "hits" will be about...

    Hey guys... My thoroughbred mare does very well bareback however despite being healthy and fit, she has kind of a sensitive bony back which makes bareback riding a pain for her. If I get on her completely bareback she acts very ****ed and does not want to move forward, I can tell it hurts her...
