I bought my horse about three years ago. And I havent been able to ride her alot for the past two years. But when I do ride her, I sometimes ride her bareback. Well she listens very VERY well with that. I havent tried it out side the fence. So its mainly just in her pasture with the other horses. But when I put a saddle on her its awefull! I don't know if its because she isnt near the other horses any more or what. But she doesnt listen!
The old owners told us to keep tighting it until she squeals. Well know matter how hard we tigtend it, she never squealed. She doesnt bloat or anything. She sits there like a lady.
Do you think the old owners had the saddle on to tight. They told me that she would always try and head back for the barn.
Some one told me that since she is 17 she should listen pretty well. HELP PLEASE! If it is from the saddle being to tight, and that's why she doesnt listen is there a way to stop that at all.
