I'm so proud of myself and my babys! We got our first time in the saddle today on both of them. Saro had a saddle on a couple of times last fall, but Shiloh only once and that was last week.
They will be 3 in April and I only rode for about 10-15 min. On both of them. I figure that's enough for the first time.
They both did well at walking out and giving to the pressure of the lead rope to turn and whoa. I think they are going to be fine trail horses by the end of summer
Here are a couple of photos. Please no fat a$$ jokes I'm not in my best clothes when I work with the horses, especially shedding ones
I started out with just pressure in the stirrup working my way up to full weight and then throwing a leg over. They both stood still at the mounting block till I got all the way up, they are such good baby's
I'm very proud of them and myself for having the courage to be the first one in the saddle on them. I never thought I could do it and wanted to share with you.
The first photo is Saro the second Shiloh and the 3rd is Shiloh's first time with a saddle last week. 100_0268.jpg
