#Barebruary by Abi‏

One of the great things about running #Barebruary initiative on Aspire blog is that I (and hopefully many of you out there) get to know many lovely riders and sometimes, they are bloggers too. Abi, who writes a fun and thoughtful equestrian blog that you might want to check out at Life At a Canter, sent these couple of photos with her bareback experiences 🙂 Over to Abi!

This is me liberty riding my mare, Allie.  Liberty has become an essential part of our bond by increasing our dependence on each other and developing a mutual understanding as well.  Additionally, I have grown as a rider to maintain better balance and position as a result of liberty riding036

Bareback jumping is both Allie’s favorite and mine.  I feel so much more connected to her when I ride bareback, and jumping gives it a new kind of thrill.  Jumping bareback has improved my lower leg drastically as well as my overall two point.  I have actually jumped higher bareback than I have in the saddle.
