"Upon the horse the girl was lost
in a pounding, surging beat
not felt upon her own two feet."
- Bethanne Ragaglia
This video was taken quite a few years ago while I was teaching and training in Tallahassee, Florida at Southern Oaks Equestrian Center. I had this lovely Friesian in training named Gryphon. He was pretty comfortable and had a nice wide back for riding bareback. Much easier than my horse Douwe who is very bouncy and has a pronounced wither. I made this short video of us schooling trot, canter transitions and rein-back to music. Enjoy!
Have you tried riding bareback? Do you school your dressage horse bareback? I would love to know! Please leave a comment down below or email me at email@example.com.
