#Barebruary by Lucy

I had a pleasure of teaching Lucy while she was a member of Reading University Riding Club several years ago. She sent this fab picture with a few thoughts on bareback riding 🙂

This is a picture of me riding Paddy completely tackless which was a great confidence boost as it reminded me that i can ride and control my horse without any of the tack we rely on normally. I was a lot more balanced than I thought I would be! (plus it was great fun and I had such a laugh jumping!)


It made me realise how much your weight placement affects your horse and how important it is to be relaxed!

Thank you for sharing Lucy! 🙂
