This is my 7 yr old, 16-1 Irish sport horse gelding, Blue. I am 15 years old and have always loved riding bare back as it helps improve balance and overall control using the body instead of relying on you hands and the bit. But, I mainly love it because you can feel the strength of the horse and how they move, also I think that they prefer it and feel freer, not restricted by a saddle.
Thank you for sharing Rosie! 🙂
