  1. As a girl who grew up riding bareback in the woods of Montana, I can definitley say I miss the feeling.

  2. Oi minha linda..essa lida me encanta muito..adorei seu canal..super inscrita e deixei meu like 350..visite meu canal para me ajudar tambem😘

  3. Ice done this before but on accident xD My horse bolted as i mounted and i was hanging off his belly for dear life. In the end I just did an emergency dismount but ended up doing a roll across the ground

  4. What a talented young lady and her horse. The special bond you and your horse have right here is something we all horse people hope to have and accomplish with our own. You are an inspiration to all of us young & old and thank you for sharing the beauty of this wonderful relationship with the world. 🙂

  5. Such a lovely video. I've been bareback riding since I was a child and find it so freeing. Its like you become one with the horse. Truly beautiful!!❤

  6. In response to a few comments/concerns about bareback riding and impact on the horse's spine, I hear you and agree you should be careful and thoughtful about this. I think it is dependent on horse, rider, and amount of bareback riding. I ride bareback about half the time, other half with a very well-fitting saddle. I've started to use a wool or air ride pad while bareback riding, though I'm not sure it makes much difference. Here's why — I've tested this out a bunch, and analyzed sweat marks with 1) thin pad with very high quality half pad and English saddle; 2) thicker wool pad, bareback); 3) thicker air ride pad, bareback; and 4) thin/baby pad, bareback (equivalent of no pad at all). I found the sweat/hair marks were evenly distributed on both sides, and nearly the same for all 4 trials. In other words, the weight distribution seemed about the same regardless of whether I was using a saddle, thick pad, or thin/no pad. I was also surprised and happy to find a fairly wide (2") line along the spine with all the tests, including bareback, where there was no hair or sweat marks – ie no pressure! This suggests the weight and impact is absorbed by butt cheeks and thighs and not on his spine, as you might expect by watching (and my tailbone concurs, no pain there… 🙂 So, I'm not saying that people should ride bareback without concern for the horse's back. If you're a heavier rider, bouncier, less able to hold your weight on your thighs, your horse has a sensitive back, or you are riding long hours, bareback is probably not the way to go. But if you're lighter, less bouncy, riding for shorter periods, your horse's back is not sore, etc, you're probably fine.

  7. Do you have a technique learned or self taught to enable another to learn from you from ground up?

  8. In love with this! I can rarely find some tackless riding really well done. Congratulations for your great work, I suscribe ^^.

  9. This is amazing!!! I trotted on a bareback pad and barely was able to balance that is amazing that you are able to canter with no tack OR saddle! I hope I can get to your level one day!

  10. All of that is well and good, except for one thing. Riding bareback with an adult weight is hard on a horse's back. Expand your horsemanship and use a bareback pad. Better yet, use two one inch thick wool felt contoured saddle pads together.

  11. I found your channel when looking for info on sitting the horse for the various gaits. This is way above my skill level! Have you ever thought of training a wild mustang…the ones available through the BLM? They contract trainers to gentle some of the mustangs before sale and there is the Mustang Million Challenge where you get 100 days to train a wild mustang for a show and benefit auction in TX. You're qualified for it.

  12. WHAT ARE YOU DOING!? You need some padding before you can ride. You don't want to give your horse a broken spine do you!?

  13. Yeah we practice a bit 🙂
    Indeed he's a smooth trotter. My other gelding is very bouncy but you can still sit him smoothly – shoulders back, hips open, absorb the bounce through hip flexors and abs

  14. oh my gosh!!!! you're so talented!!! and the horse is AMAZING to! if i tried to do this on my horse i'd probably fall off! these are the kind of videos i LOVE!!!!

  15. n I agree u should look into training others to ride.. u truly r an amazing rider.. cannot believe why people would dislike this.. maybe because they think its dangerous? anyway ignore them.. probs jus jelly

  16. I had a dream that i was riding a grey horse bareback, i wasnt moving but it was still amazing……..i cant wait to finally start my horse riding lessons and hopefully become a full on equistrian 🙂
