my horse is afriad of saddles

My name is Nicki and my mustang mare is broke. i can ride her bare back but it's a constient 15 minutes of ring around the rosey to get the saddle on her back. then a couple weeks ago i tryed to get on her while the saddle was on her back, and she started to buck. i need any advice i can get, becuase ive never had a horse in my life do this. and this is my frist horse ive owned

Get a trainer. They will be able to give you hands on help.

Not as broke as you think she is. Can you afford a trainer?

Sorry-I agree with both of the above. You will need the help of a trainer. She is definitely NOT broke.

??? I'm having a little trouble following that. How much experience do you have with horses? Is this horse one that you have gotten unstarted and are attempting to train yourself or is it a horse that came to you trained and you are having troubles with due to your own inexperience?
The short answer is, you both need the assistance of a professional before one, or both, of you is injured or otherwise damaged by these attempts.

I suggest you make yourself available, and soak up what they tell you like a sponge. Just because you can sit on a horse bareback does not make them "broke".

By doing what's best for her (and you) would be getting both of you a trainer.
