So far so good with the saddle! Today is day three (I missed her first time with it as I was at work). Unfortunately I forgot the video camera, but I’ll remember for Monday’s lesson.
She did very well at our lesson tonight–Amber lunged her under saddle, putting the stirrups down to see how she’d react with those hanging down. She also put the bridle on her (with the saddle) to see how she would do with both. She didn’t seem to feel overwhelmed with all of the new stuff, but it could be because she’d done it the last few days separately so it really wasn’t that new.
I’ll try to get some video and post next week so you can see how she’s coming along. She’s extremely smart and learning in leaps & bounds.
