So Gizmo has been kind of bratty since I bought him about putting the saddle on. He just doesn't like to stand still. I know the saddle fits him. His saddle pad could be thicker and I'm working on that. But he will stand like a perfect gentleman when being groomed and when you put his pad on but then when you are about to put the saddle on he starts to prance and gets excited. When you get it on him he will move from side to side and its really hard to get it on perfect and straight and then his saddle pad messes up. Sometimes I have to take it off and start over because he messes it up so... much. It's very annoying. I think he just gets excited because he is going for a ride. But I don't know what to do. I have his head tied really close to the ring, but he can still move from side to side easily. Any good ideas on how to get him to stop it? I have tried telling him ho many times and giving him a smack, but nothing has worked.
