    Saddle on Saro *update page 2*

    I was doing the cleaning on Saro today after riding Vida. I got her brushed out and feet cleaned. Well Vida's saddle was just sitting there so I decided to put it on Saro. First time she did really good. No spook or anything just stood there and let me put it on her.
    Should I be doing that? I only left it on her for a min. Or so. She turned and took a look at the stirrups I was kinda banging around on her side. Other than that she just stood there. She just turned 2 am I pushing too fast?

    I don't think that's moving too fast. I think it's good to at least get her used to having a saddle on. It's not like you're riding her. But that's awesome she didn't spook!

    I don't think you're moving too fast, the sooner the better honestly, and putting the saddle on as long as you aren't on her is a really fundamental thing....

    It will get her used to having the saddle on. I don't think you're moving too fast. Just take it slow.

    Just the saddle is okay, my opinion. It's only good for her to get used to it, don't start riding her to early and when you do, don't drive her to fast. I think you do the best thing for your horse

    Theres definitely nothing wrong with sitting the saddle on her back for a while. At her age and size the saddle certainly wouldnt be causing her any issues while its just sitting there.

    Its great that she just took it like that :)

    I think that would actuallly be good for him. No rider of course but a saddle should be fine and banging the stirups around wholdn't hurt anything either.

    Vida I think what you did is perfectly fine. I mean that is basically sackin out the horse, and I think its a good move to get the horse introduced to the saddle and such. Then when it comes to the time where you will begin ridin her, then she will already be familiar with the saddle and stuff like that.

    Thats fine. Its good he took it well, lol the big test is having him walk, that's when they really take notice of the girth :P
