LOL Not even kidding...I bought a thorowgood and when I took it to the barn to try it on him, he was not happy. Usually I can put anything on him while he's just eating hay...second the synthetic saddle touched him he ran off bucking! Soooooo I brought him up to wash rack and tied him up...started slowly with it. If I got near him with it he completely tensed up his back and head went up...OVER A SADDLE.
Well after working with him with it for a few days he's ok with it now. I haven't been able to actually try it yet though since I'm waiting for an xwide gullet lol...Deffffff going to lunge him a bit in it first ! Incase he thinks its a demon again and needs to run away from it while its on his back!
Oh and he could care less about my dressage saddle. The day he was being a weirdo about the thorowgood I grabbed my dressage saddle that's leather and he didnt have a care in the world about it getting on him...but when I reached for the thorowgood again..oh god...
