Can you imagine jumping a 6-foot triple bar, bareback, without a bridle? Check out this video.
Whoa! That’s some amazing riding.
I love riding bareback (not over 6-foot fences, but nonetheless). You just feel so much closer to your horse, you can feel what his back is doing underneath you, and it makes you sit straighter and in optimum balance.
There are only two inconveniences: 1. Sweat, and 2. withers.
Did you know that Fleeceworks makes a bareback pad?
Problem solved. Made from the same soft, plush, luxurious sheepskin as their saddle pads, riding on one of the pads is like riding on a cloud.
If fan of riding sans saddle, consider investing in one of the pads. Your undercarriage will thank you.
Go Fleeceworks, and Go Riding.
