Get the facts a
on to and the pad acts as a cushion between your
seat bones and your horse, especially if your
horse's back is bony or has high withers.
Once you're confident in your ability to stay
on your horse bareback, go from the round pen to
a larger arena. It's helpful to have someone else
horseback in the arena to be company for your
horse. Remember his herd-animal instincts.
Safety should always be first in your mind,
but when you feel good about riding bareback,
venture outside the confines of the arena. Explore
some trails and different avenues. Ride with only
your halter and lead, then advance to just a neck
rope, and finally totally bareback and bridleless.
Be smart, go slow and realize that progress is a
function of time and intensity. Have fun.

Hide on Hide
One useful suggestion for a
better seat is to wear leather
chaps or chinks while riding
bareback. Leather against your
horse's hide not only protects
you, but also gives you a more
secure feeling as you ride.
Personally, I never get on a
horse without putting on my
chaps or chinks. These tradi-
tional leg coverings create a
closer contact between me and
my horse, whether I ride bare-
back or in the saddle.
HERE'S HOW
Start Now With Fly
Prevention:
5 Ways To Keep
Flies Under Control
Spring may be late in many parts of the
country, but horse owners don't want to be late
with preventative fly control practices, according
horse care.
"Don't want to wait until it's 85 degrees ou,t
with humidity to match, to think about fly control,"
Cerny said. "Early prevention is key to having
fewer flies around your horses and stable."
5 things you can do now to get ready:
1. Harrow pastures (break up manure piles)
and muck out dry lots or pens. This might also
mean bringing in some new sand for areas that
have been saturated with manure and urine.
Stalls and run-in sheds should also be stripped
of old bedding. Old manure, dirty bedding, and fe-
ces saturated soil all attract flies and insects once
the temperature increases.
2. Remove, or eliminate potential fly ha-
vens. This means anything that holds water after
a rain like empty pails, grain pans, and unused
water tanks. Filling in dips in pens will also help
reduce places for standing water
.3. Feed garlic, or add apple cider vinegar to
your horse's water or grain. Feeding garlic helps
deter biting insects. Cider vinegar is also believed
to do the same thing when added to your horse's
drinking water or grain. It can also be added to
rinse water when bathing your horse.
4. Use fly predators. These little insects are
very helpful in reducing the number of flies on
your property. The key - use them correctly and
have your first order shipped early enough in the
season.
5. Have barrier/repellant products stocked
and ready to use before you need them. Make
sure that you have fly masks and sheets ready
to go before you see your first flies. Have at least
one-month's supply of fly spray for both your
horses and for your barn on hand.
