Giving Girls 'Piggy-Back' Rides!!

How to Give a Piggyback


  1. Stand straight with arms hung lose either side of your body.
  2. Open arms slightly to allow room for riders legs.
  3. Bend knees slightly, this is an important step to avoid back injury and elaborate jump ups (unless you like these).
  4. Rider to approach from behind.
  5. Drop knees to allow rider to place strongest arm around your neck.
  6. Rider should place strongest arm around shoulder bone, using your shoulders to support weight.
  7. Rider should place other arm (if available) over strong arm to secure hold around shoulder bones.
  8. Do not take weight off rider yet!
  9. Once arms are secure (make sure you can still breathe) bend knees slightly reaching straight back with arms.
  10. As you reach down instruct rider to gently take their weight with arms and bend their knees towards hands.
  11. With your knees still bent, maintain a straight back and pull arms underneath riders legs to join your hands.
  12. Securely join your hands, ideally with an interlocking finger lock.
  13. Slowly raise the rider by straightening knees, be careful as this is the point when you are most likely to overbalance.
  14. Keep a straight back.
  15. To engage a longer lasting and more comfortable piggyback adjust your arms to bring your elbows as close to your hips as possible, ideally this will transfer the weight from your arms into your hips.
  16. Enjoy being someones beast of burden.

    Generally if the person is taller than you or is very strong, they will be able to give you a piggyback ride. Talk to the person if you are unsure of their strength.

  • For smaller riders (children) get them to sit on a table or bench to avoid lots of movement when lifting.
  • For advanced riders the weaker hand can be removed to allow for gentle encouragement of the pig (a slap on the backside can sometimes gain a boost of up to 2 mph).
  • The further back your elbows the easier it is to keep balance and maintain the piggyback.
  • Try to make all movements and adjustment with leg strength and not arm strength.
  • A low rider is a fast and safe rider. The lower the center of gravity the less chance of a fall.
  • Riders arms can be adjusted for comfort once the legs are held securely (avoid adjustments while moving).
  • When moving a gallop as opposed to a run can provide more entertainment while remaining safe.
  • Encourage rider to place weight through legs and to grip slightly with thighs while locking ankles together, this will prolong the piggyback.


  • Avoid ice and other low friction surfaces, these can lead to falls and broken teeth.
  • Try not to drop person without warning. They could choke you or injure themselves.
  • Don't try to give a piggyback to someone heavier than you; you will most likely be injured.
