    RE: [RC] [RC] ? Competing Bareback - AprJhn

    Time for this discussion again already?
    It's not against the AERC rules. I've done my 2 LDs bareback (3 years back). I don't recommend legs to jeans to horse, though. Rubbed my skin off. Ouch. Wearing pantyhose underneath the jeans helped, though. Unless the ride management places a rule against it, bareback is allowed. (Unless I missed something?)
    I now train my youger Arab in a saddle, though. (I do ride my 13 yo bareback occasionally during training rides.) Not all horses are built for bareback riding. ;)
