Learn to Properly Ride Horse | A month's worth of equestrian lessons in non-competative English Pleasure riding should be enough to accomplish this. I have always loved horses and have wanted to go horseback riding in the past and didn't because I was inexperienced and intimidated. I want to change that.
Always a hard decision. Do I want to fly over jumps and let my horse extend and trot out, or take a leisurely jog and ride the trail? Do I want to stuff myself into breeches or get chafed by jeans? :) my solution was always to just hop on bareback.
