    I would bet that you are more concerned then he will be. Most horses have no reaction to the change after the first 1/2 hour.

    I would saddle him and just lead or round pen him for a bit then get on and ride..

    Just make sure the saddle fits him decently. Its only a different saddle, not too much of a big deal. ;)

    Okay because he tends to throw a fit when things change. Thanks IRH that was good advice.

    You are very welcome! Just remember that your concern can be felt through the saddle.

    Make sure the western saddle fits him, and just put it on him and lunge him around and let him get the feel for the saddle.

    I am going to lunge him all right! He is so funny when he lunges. I like to lunge him because I know that he gets all his buck out. I just have to rember that I am boss and not worrie.

    I think Lounging is a good idea to start but like they said, I bet your more concerned then your boy will be. Good luck and have a ton of fun! I love switching things up!
