Clip of The Week – Bareback Blooper

I wanted to get to the barn to do a couple of video clips of Fredi riding bareback before the baby comes and I don’t have time or free hands to shoot a video.

Unfortunately, the horse was having a bad day today so Fredi had to keep doing this bareback mount over and over. This was about take 15 or 20 in a row, and he was starting to get tired. I thought it was cute so I would keep it and post it anyway. Sorry about my hideous laughter, but he almost wiped out as he pulled the horse forward and it cracked me up, so you may want to turn off the volume!

In this clip Fredi is demonstrating how to mount a horse Native American Style.
The key is to grab the mane and swing using momentum to get onto the horse. The only piece of equipment Fredi is really using is a roper rein and a halter. He is working toward bareback and bridleless and has already eliminated the bit and bridle. He didn’t opt for a hackamore, because he is trying to go as natural as possible.

Have a laugh at our expense ;)

    Hi Gals!

    Yeah, I can’t do that mount either. On the next video, I’ll show you the way I can get on bareback.
