    Actually I agree with Bluey. I have seen a lot of spoiled home bred horses that have their owners number. I have seem home bred horses owned by professional trainers that need to go out to a...

    Also a saddle that just doesn't fit in the shoulders will do this. My cowhorse saddle wasn't wide enough and way too straight in the shoulders. That made the saddle to tip up. It didn't go on her...

    I don't think the third one fits at all it's too far forward and just perches up there.

    I like the first one the best but it's a little longer on her back. I would like to see that one with a...

    Ditto on Tony Lamas. I also have a pair of Justin George Strait boots. I even fit i a regular width but they do come in wide.

    Yes and almost every time. If I am just doing arena work, not necessarily. I mostly trail ride, and ride quite a few hills. I also like the stability of the breast collar when mounting and...

    My gelding is so allergic to the gnats that fly up and latch on. So my old stand bys make him swell up so I have had to be pretty conservative and observe what works or doesn't.

    The more I read this, I think perhaps your horse is nervous with you being above him. So that's where you start. Sitting on a fence or stump or lower mounting blocks or whatever. Just get him used...
