What do You Think About Riding Bareback?

Hi Brenda-


 I was wondering what you think about riding bareback?

I'm not keen on bareback riding. While it sounds all-natural and spiritually uplifting, the truth is that our seat bones tend to grind into the sensitive muscles on the horse's back as we follow its motion. If you don't think this is true, get on your hands and knees and haul a little child around on your back for a while. It hurts, and we have less rounded muscle to be poked into than most horses. Plus, no matter how good one rides, bareback is a less secure seat (you talk about the potential for losing your balance. . .and that potential is greater, bareback). Not only is this unnerving in itself for the horse, but any wrecks involving a person being thrown is not only dangerous for the person, but traumatizing for the horse.


Happy and smooth trails!
