bareback riding, the best feeling in the world and the best way to learn how to ride
“We Ride: to fly, to feel, to touch, to breathe, to laugh, to bond, to overcome, to relax, to get away. To prove them wrong, to belong, to feel strong, to heal, to love and to be loved back. We ride to live.”
Bareback is amazing. Being able to feel each muscle as it tightens. Being able to feel each and every move this 1200 pound animal is performing beneath you. It's beautiful, and I miss it so much. Definitely see a much needed bareback ride in my future. :)
I rarely bothered with a bit or bridle. A halter & some lengths of binder twine suited me just fine (and boots were always optional, too).
Indicative of dedication or apathy? It's a toss up really. ;) I'd like to pretend all my bareback riding has been because I'm tirelessly working on becoming awesome, but I'm afraid that's a bit of a stretch. Fortunately, Woody has always been a fan regardless of my motivations.
This girl is an awesome horseback rider! Bareback riding a horse on a jump with not to mention no saddle, but no bridle, too! Byelorussian Harness Horse cross mare Umnitsa Beautiful horse!
my life explained perfectly. last weekend I was so lazy as soon as I got the horse I was riding, I just tied the lead rope into makeshift reins and I hopped on and rode.
ahh... nothing better than bareback horse ride. And I will add a swim in the creek Cindy! Loved to do that!!!
A horse to call my own...someday ...My lifelong dream is to own & care for my own horses and whenever I feel the want or need, take this gorgeous creature out for a long peaceful ride.. More
