Naked Girls Riding Bareback on a White Horse

One summer when I was studying Spanish in Salamanca, Amadeo, a family friend who knew I liked riding, invited me to visit for the weekend. Riding bareback was the custom on his ranch, but it wasn’t until I arrived at the stables that I discovered riding bareback with Amadeo meant montar a caballo desnuda – riding stark naked.

It was a hot July day, the air thin and dry. My clothes were sticking to me and the earthy smell of the stables lent itself to a mad moment of exhibitionism. I stripped from my shirt and shorts, hesitated as I ran my panties down my legs and used a stool to climb up on a slender white mustang that wriggled its back as I made myself comfortable.

After the weekend, I discovered on Google that girls riding bareback, usually on a white horse, is an image burned deep in the  human imagination, a theme explored by writers, artists and photographers since the beginning of time.

The best known story is that of Lady Godiva, who rode naked through the streets of Coventry in the 13th century to object to the rise in taxes – her protest achieving an erotic coup: revealing her svelte young body, and all in a good cause.

In the Brothers Grimm tale The Peasant’s Wise Daughter, a farmhand finds a golden mortar on some land given to him by the king. His daughter warns that should he give the mortar to the king to repay his kindness, he would ask for the pestle as well. The father ignores her advice. When the king demands the pestle, the peasant says that’s exactly what his daughter had warned.image showsgirl riding bareback

Intrigued, the king sends for the daughter and sets her a riddle: to come to him neither naked nor clothed, neither walking nor riding a horse, neither on the road nor off it. If she solved the riddle, he pledged to marry her. The girl wrapped herself in a fish net, and tied it to a donkey’s tail so that it had to drag her along while she kept one toe touching the ground. The king agreed that she had unravelled the riddle and carried her off to the wedding bed.

Michael Punke in his novel The Revenant – the film version stars Leonardo diCaprio – tells of a French Canadian legend in which a stallion standing in the river kicks up the water in such a way that a large fish lands on the bank where a beautiful girl named Isabelle stands watching. She takes the fish home for her family.

Each day, she stands a little closer to the horse and each day he gives her a gift, an apple, some flowers, and each day her family laughs when she tells them the story. Finally, the stallion approaches Isabelle, she climbs on his back and they disappear on the current, never to be seen again.

The moral of The Peasant’s Wise Daughter is that kings set riddles where girls must take off their clothes and girls who want to marry kings need to be clever. The moral of Isabelle and the mustang seems to be don’t tell your family if you are falling for a stranger, especially if it happens to have a long mane and watery brown eyes.

Riding Bareback on a Unicorn

Some folk tales exchange the horse for a unicorn, the creature with a phallic-like horn rising from its brow adding a new twist to the myth’s erotic fantasy. Horses are gentle, docile, compliant. When a naked girl goes down on her hands and knees, rump pushed out, emphasising the shallow dip of the back, as she gazes upwards there is an equestrian appearance in her benign features.

The circus has thrilled audiences with scantily clad girls riding bareback around the ring performing handstands and somersaults. The good cowboy in a white hat rides a white horse. Sir Lancelot rode a white horse. Boadicea rode a white horse. White horses represent purity. A girl on a white horse represents a purity that invites destruction, according to Georges Bataille, who writes in his masterpiece Eroticism that men have an innate desire to defile as well as cherish all that is beautiful – a lesson that youth is fleeting and all is impermanent.

The impulse to destroy beauty is manifested in human sacrifice when it is always the prettiest virgin in the tribe they send to the flames – her beauty burned to ash pleasing the Gods and a relief to those men who fantasized sullying her purity and would never – with his wife’s beady gaze – have had the opportunity to do so.

There is a growing interest in yiffing, people dressing in animal costumes for nights of wild sex. The white horse has been supplanted in recent times by a pony and ponygirls dressed in chains and leather have taken on the role of the naked girl riding bareback.

To return to that summer in Spain, I set off on my white horse behind Amadeo and we headed for the distant line of trees. The sierras rose up like black tents along the horizon and the parched air pecked at my bare skin like lots of tiny kisses.

When we reached the trees, I was sweating. A pool of aquamarine water   had gathered in the rocks, an overspill from the river that ran down from the hills . We cooled off in the icy depths and dried in the sun.

I was not attracted to Amadeo. He was married, his wife was away, and he was much older than me, my father’s age. But riding bareback across the empty landscape must have touched the erotic gene our clothes suppress and, at the water’s edge, Amadeo was soon riding me beneath the blazing sun with the horses watching from  the shade of the trees.
