It was the last day of #Barebruary 2015 this past Saturday and I would like to thank you to everyone who took part in our little hashtag initiative 🙂
There is one predominant benefit of bareback riding that I really appreciate to have as a teaching tool – it encourages feel over haste…
It makes the rider very aware about font to back and lateral balance of their own body, of being in front of or behind the movement as well as of being centred and “listening” to the horse’s movement.
I hope this initiative made some of you excited about trying bareback riding for the first time or re-visit it if you haven’t done it for a long time. I will definitely be keeping it as part of Aspire’s training on permanent basis as and when possible.
