I need to strengthen my leg. I’ve never done bareback and I’m thinking of doing it. Is it fun? Should I try bareback? Please just give me your opinion! ❤️😃

No stirrups also works well and you’re in the saddle which provides more security
no stirrups is way more effective!
Ride without stirrups!
bareback can be painful for the horse, especially if you dont have a good seat. when you ride bareback, you sit directly on the horses spine. i recommend using a saddle & riding without stirrups.
Yes, it can be a bit daunting at first, so start out with no stirrups! I only do a little bareback after a ride, that way my horse is a little more tired. 😂
Bareback riding will definitely improve the strength of your overall riding, but it's not for everyone. I personally can not bareback my horse as he has too much suspension and bounce, but on other horses it's absolutely wonderful! When I ride my horse I remove my stirrups from my saddle and do lots of no stirrup work, this can be just as beneficial 🤗
It really depends what kind of strengthing you are wanting. Bareback will strengthen your grip and it's fun but it's also not for everyone. Not everybody will enjoy it.
Lots of 2 point will strengthen your leg and a lot of different muscles. Also rising trot etc
Bareback is really fun!! It also helps with balance, using more leg, and most of all, you can have fun with your horse! Try posting while bareback. Also do alot of stirrupless work when your riding. :)
Bare back is super fun and a great way to test out and improve your balance. However if you want to strengthen your leg more I suggest doing lots of no stirrup work (especially posting trot).
Bareback is very fun! Such a different feeling from that of a saddle. Just make sure to do lots of no stirrup work in your saddle before you go bareback! You need those muscles to stabilize way more without your saddle!
