Throwback to being on the Sydney International Cross Country Course. The wonder…

Throwback to being on the Sydney International Cross Country Course. The wonderful team at SIEC moved a number of jumps around for me to jump which was awesome!
This drop was over 2 meters down… Which came off a downhill run up. It took two jumps for me to figure out how to balance my body without getting thrown around and where the best place was for me to place my weight. Being bareback you can’t lean back like you would normally in a saddle as there are no stirrups to balance on and you have to be very careful you don’t flip forward straight over the horses head on landing.

It’s not just about the rider either. You must always do your best to be as light and balanced as possible so that you do not unbalance your horse on take off, in the air or on landing…AND so you are not using your reins for balance. Their job is already hard enough without us making it any tougher by working against them by where we place our weight 😊

It’s very interesting what you can…. And cannot get away with bareback. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…
