    I have a filly, she'llbe 3 in April, I've been trying to at least get a saddle on her for the last four month, but keep getting sidetracked or the weather is not good. My goal is to get her under saddle this spring. But I've never done that before, so I don't know if I'll have the nerve.

    Satrider, does she have a good groundwork foundation? Putting the saddle on may just be the easiest part :). What I did was introduce it to him first. Once he was used to it, then I would start to do some work in it like lunging, leading, ect for months before I got on. Just try and act like it's no big deal, but be aware of changes in body language and ALWAYS have someone out there with you until you know how they are going to react. If you don't feel comfortable, then it's not a bad idea to get tips from someone you trust. Good luck! And if you need any tips there are lots of us on here that have started the young ones :)

    Satrider, its not to hard, but yes make sure her groundwork is going good before you jump on her lol. I would have someone out there with me (as free said) until you get to know her well. Horses are extreamly smart, they can read body language and go by vocals.(Im sure you know this). If her ground work is up to par, and you have some sort of relationship with her(trust wise) you should do just fine. ;)

    Freesprd and mustang man,
    Thanks for the advice, yeah I thought I'm just going to go real slow like y'all suggested. Her groundwork is OK but not perfect yet. So I know I'll have to brush up on it before I get serious about the saddle. I'll be sure to do longe work and such before I get on.

    Oh gosh yes, I thought eh his groundwork isn't perfect yet, so ill just go ahead with it, well I never did that and perfected his groundwork and it was so much easier to transfer to the saddle.
