Thank you both, he just turned 4 a couple of months ago. God forbid he ever have a mind to buck because I think he would destroy me. We were riding through town and a little kid darted out from behind a house on a bike. He nearly tore me in two when he jumped sideways away from it. LOL. My right leg is still sore but if that is the worst thing to ever happen to me, I'll be lucky. I really can't wait until he neck reins and is a little more responsive. I have to keep reminding myself that he is only 4 and has never been ridden before. His size keeps throwing me off and I expect him to know more than he does. Although, I will have to get a different saddle because I can't always have my Dad there to put the saddle on him. I am neither tall enough or strong enough for my heavy roping saddle.
