A lot of horses that react like this to being saddled do it because they resent being ridden or have become that way by someone riding them inconsiderately
You should check that your saddle is comfortable and fits correctly and that nothing is pinching anywhere as it tightens. You should always re-check your girth again before you mount and again after a short while once riding especially if your horse is 'blowing out' to avoid having the girth tightened you are likely to suddenly find yourself sitting on his side instead of his back
I can understand that you see this as your dream horse so please don't let it turn into your nightmare by allowing bad habits to get out of control
i wil ask my trainer thx very much
