Sam had a close to 2 hour session today and we really got somewhere. Of course when I was done, I didn't have time to do Samantha too, so she will have hers tomorrow. Sam is flinchy and weird about everything so I threw a bunch of things his direction so he would have to decide what he was scared off.
I completely saddled him probably 15 times in between tarp work, lunging, ground work and anything else I could think of and he did really well. He was goofy and stupid the first time I put the saddle on him and he got better with every saddling.
I decided (2 hours later) that when I put the saddle on his back, he let out his breath, dropped his head and licked his lips, while standing on a blowing tarp...we were done :)
