Let’s take a closer look…
Bareback riders typically sit on the horse’s back instead of in a saddle, which gives the animal plenty of room to move and facilitates movement between horse and rider. This allows both partners to communicate better and allow for a greater degree of trust and coordination between them. Additionally, since there is no weight directly pressing down onto the horse’s back, friction is minimized and injury potential reduced significantly.
Overall, then, while there are some arguments pro and con to bareback riding depending on an individual horse’s personality or physique, it can generally be seen as less straining on both party involved – making it a popular choice for those looking for an enjoyable experience without all the typical stressors associated with equestrian sport
