    RE: [RC] [RC]   Competing Bareback - sindy mccosker

    I guess I just thought it was against the rules. You don't see photos of endurance winners bareback very often. I am not sure why you would want to trot 50+ miles bareback, especially if your horse had a wither bone that was noticeable. 8^)

    There is another photo in another old magazine of a 12 year old boy riding his 3/4 Arabian 52 miles in sub zero weather with 6 inches of snow and ice covered highways ub 6 and 3/4 hours. The photo has ice covering the horses long hairs.

    These old magazines are so interesting.

    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. ;)
