So yesterday I went for a 2 hour ride, he is still doing better and better gaiting under saddle, however I agree Berkley, I too am switching to a bit again, I noticed he did great with the hackamore on the way out BUT on the way home I couldnt get him to recollect and I had a hard time turning him and slowing him down when he didnt want to. LUCKILY I have been riding with the bit attached to the saddle with a clip so I was able to take the hackamore off and put that bit in his mouth and had LESS problems. I believe it was Zab who had mentioned in a previous post on this thread that if he had been hurt under saddle he may be "afraid" that he is going to hurt if he gaits...I am wondering if that is the case cause as I am noticing he has been doing better and better each time (as long as I have a bit in his mouth lol).
*berlkey, I would love to get a tucker saddle but all the used ones I've seen are still 800-900! Wish I could afford one, guess ill have to settle...dont want to go into debt over a saddle lol
