I put a saddle on Jet yesterday he didn't mind it at all. When I showed it to him he put it in his mouth for a few seconds and I just put it on his back. I'm pretty proud of him he isn't even one year old yet and he is such a good boy. And don't worry the saddle is a very very light nylon saddle. So hopefully by the time he is two he will be easy to get on and teach how to be ridden. Gotta wait a whole year though but I can't wait!
