After that I came home and rode Dragon, and tried out my rope hackamore on him. I figured if he was blowing through the french link oval mouth I had him in, that we needed to go back a step and work on some basics. He did pretty well, considering he hasn't been ridden hardly at all the last few months, because of the weather. My lesson kid was sick and canceled, so after Dragon, the hubby and I pulled out Buck and Phantom and tried out an Aussie and an Endurance saddle that I brought home from a friend. He LOVES the endurance, so looks like I will be buying it and adding to the tack collection. She flat out gave us the Aussie, I just need to buy a girth for it. Oh lordie, I just added it up, that's 13 saddles I have now. I think I may have a slight tack problem, lol.
