Cool What is this?

Well FINALLY after a lot of looking I found a black western saddle for a decent price! I was so excited to put it on my black mare QH! Came home went to put it on just like normal and she decided to act like she had never seen a saddle before. I have never had problems putting on her old dark brown very worn in saddle. Any ideas???

Ready to ride!

It could have been a smell that she detected or she just recognized that it was different. I would do a real cleaning on it and leave it in your tack room for a few days then try again. Let her see and smell it before putting it on her.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

LOL...my mare did the same thing. I think it was just the change and how it felt on her. She did the very same thing when I purchased a new headstall and bit for her. Now mind you, they were almost identical except color! Silly girls.

If wishes were horses, then beggars would ride.

They are silly! She will walk up and sniff it no problem doesn't care...the only thing I can think of is that the underside is a brand spankin new yellow fluff! Where my other saddle is worn in and dirty underneath. I can't fling it up with one hand I am a weenie.

I don't think that makes you a weeinie. I can't either and I don't consider myself a weenie
