I trot with no stirrups sometimes in my saddle to build leg strength before trying to ride bareback with no leg strenght
You can start out on the lunge line without stirrups and then try bareback if you feel more comfortable then start out with ground poles and small cross rails to go over
Hi Summer,
I think the first thing to do is to be sure that you feel comfortable without stirrups/bareback at the 3 gaits. Then you can start small jumps without stirrups first and then bareback. Once you have balance over the small jump you can increase the difficulty.
Good luck, hope my advice will help!
