Bareback vs. Saddle Riding
For someone new to horseback riding it’s important to know the difference between riding bareback and saddle riding. There has always been this fantasy of riding bareback along the countryside, but what’s the difference? The answer is pure physics. Saddle riding helps with weight distribution. The more surface area under the rider from the saddle, the more evenly distributed the weight will be. During bareback riding your weight resides primary in two places on the horse. Not only is this not as comfortable for the horse, but it’s notably more dangerous for the rider.
If you want to experience saddle riding first hand, check out this place Saddle Ridge Riding Center. Saddle Ridge Riding Center is a full service equestrian facility, that sits on 28 acres of fields and trails.
