Bareback is a great way to improve your seat, your fitness and your balance! It’s great to also be in close contact with your horse.
Without the saddle between you and your horse you can perfect your cues and get the horse listening to your most subtle movements and commands with ease!
Bareback riding is one step closer to riding bridleless! You and your horse are in full contact and communication when bareback.
“But what if I fall off? I have nothing to hold onto!” Is a normal response I get when I mention to ditch the saddle. My reply is simple, if you fall off, you have nothing to get hung up on. We all fall we all get back on and we all learn how to stay on. Yes you’ll be so sore you can hardly move the first week you rode without the saddle but you’ll love it! You’ll love the confidence riding bareback gives you once you are back in the saddle and the strong core you will develop.
“The hardest part of riding is the ground”
Take your riding to the next level and challenge yourself by ditching the saddle!
