Wiola: Do you find bareback backing useful?
Sharon: I find it gave me a great feel for his movement and he could feel me too so we worked as a team.
Wiola: Do you encourage your clients to incorporate bareback into training?
Sharon: I certainly do, even the nervous ones, find it is useful to prevent them tightening up and gripping up. Shame the insurance companies are frowning on it 😦
Thank you for sharing Sharon! 🙂
