Keeping things fun during the long and cold winter?
So, I was just doing a search to see if I could find any ideas on staying focused during the winter since I'll mostly be riding on my own without beloved trainer.
I didn't really find much, but did come across the subject of going bareback for the winter. I would like to try doing some bareback on my TB, but would love to hear recommendations on bareback pads that 1) stay in place, and 2) will not leave me unable to pee without wanting to cry, if you know what I mean :o
What's your favorite?
Any ideas for keeping the indoor riding fun and interesting would be appreciated as well!
I rode bareback last night
I didn't remember just how much fun and how challenging it is!
Now, I ride a haffy who is much like riding a couch, so I had no need for a bareback pad. But, as a kid I owned a few shark finned OTTBs and I remember using some kind of synthetic fleece which seemed to work pretty well. I believe it sinched up like a western saddle? I don't remember any slippage.
I'm going to work in bareback riding as part of my weekly program. I learned a lot about my bad habits last night! :)
