Rosin Back Riding

.

 

Rosin back riding is so cool.  Rosinback riding is done with no saddle.  The horse wears a pad to protect their back from the pressure of you standing or performing a stunt and landing on their back.  One of the biggest tricks to rosin back riding is having a great handler that is lounging your horse.  Rhythm is everything.  If the horse breaks their rhythm, it can be very difficult for you to maintain your rhythm while standing on their back.  There is nothing better for mastering balance than rosin back riding.  It is great if you have the opportunity to try this with the benefit of a spotting cable.  Being attached to a spotters cable allow you to be more creative with what you attempt, because if you slip they can catch you with the cable!
