First Time With A Saddle!

Sassy has never had anything on her except for a jock's racing saddle (which is really no saddle at all) and the bareback pad I have used the past year, so I didn't know how she would react to this full western I borrowed from a friend while I shop around for one of my own (might get a Billy Cook for $350!). She took it just like she does everything else, just great. It was kind of strange for me, though, after a year of bareback, to be back in a saddle. I am glad I did all that bareback, though. It really is great for balance.

Won't let me watch the vid on my phone, but congrats and what a great deal on the Cook!

Not surprised, DS. After all, she is a TB, and an ex-racer. Most of them are very laid back when it comes to introducing new things.

My JJ is very similar. 'Oh, you're putting that on me? Okay.'

That is the advantage to the OTTB...they have seen it all already...and almost anything other than the track is better
