There are many steps before putting a saddle on a horse. A horse that struggles when saddled has missed out on these critical steps in their training.
Every horse is a unique individual and responds differently to different pressures. The saddle is combination of many different pressures.
When we're starting a colt, restarting a horse or working through saddle/cinch issues, it's important that we make sure we cross all the t's and dot all the i's before we pull that cinch tight.
In this webinar, we'll explore some easy exercises you can do to prepare a horse for the saddle for a first time and help a horse with saddle anxieties. This isn't just the cinch, but everything associated with the saddle and the space around, above and below it.
