    Thats what I thought. and one of the reasons I sort of banged the stirrups around her sides. I've tyed a saddle pad on her a few times and walked her around with no reactions. I've never taken a horses training past halter breaking. Not sure what I should be doing with her.

    Thats good. Maybe some light lunging under saddle but I think you don't need to worry too much yet. What age are you going to break him in??

    I was thinking at 3 1/2 starting light work under saddle. I don't want to put any weight on her till 4 or so.
    She pretty much has most of the ground stuff down.

    Nah, not too fast at all! Just packing a saddle won't hurt her,(she's a good sized girl!) and will help prepare her mind for the future "big day" of the first ride. First, it was casual, and she remained calm. Excellent! Second, it was over before she had a chance to resent it. Third, she won't associate it with being ridden just yet, so it's a totally positive experience.

    I have both the girls standing quietly while I step up on a mounting block and lean over them. I started putting some weight on them today actually laying across their backs. They both did a little walk off but nothing major. Still doing ok?

    Sounds good! I'd prefer one that would mosey off and get the feel of packing weight in motion over one that sulls up and gets stiff. Sounds like it was no big deal. You can work on having them stay still and move off your cue as you go. Good start to build on. But training perhaps isn't my field. LOL

    Me either on the training I'm so afraid I'm going to screw them up and ruin them for life
