Saddle time!

Yesterday, I put on Dinah's saddle for the first time. She was very good about it and didn't get upset even when I tightened the girth! Some of my students came to visit Dinah yesterday, so she got a chance to make some new friends. After putting the saddle on I took Dinah to the round pen for a longing session. There was a lot going on so she was a little distracted but otherwise very good. She got a little concerned when she heard the saddle flaps moving around on her back, so tomorrow I will work on desensitizing her to that noise. After the round pen I took her out on a walk and she was again well behaved. It is time to start getting ready to ride! She is such a sweet girl, I am really enjoying our time together.
