Horses should be tethered with a holster and guide wire supported by a helper or with the floor. Place the saddlecloth ( or blankets) on the horse. Put it a little further forward than it should be when you're done with your work. Two things can be achieved by pushing the saddlecloth a little too far forward:
They leave room for the pads and the saddle, just as they want when they saddle, of course, without landing too far back. The saddle cloth should not be gripped (before and/or after the saddle is put on) and should be pulled forward to bring everything into the correct place.
It can be difficult and cumbersome and also drags against the growing of the horse-hairs and rubs them in the opposite direction. Avoid the front RCA, rear RCA, chest strap and stapes so that these things do not end up under the saddle when you raise the saddle onto the horse's back.
On our picture the saddle will be placed on the horse from the lefthand side of the horse. He' s put the front belt, the back belt and the chest flange on the saddle to get them out of the way. As the right bracket tends to slip slightly from the saddle, it has hung it over the saddle flange.
Raise the saddle and place it on the back of the horse. Repeat this as smoothly and with as much caution as possible so that you do not hit the saddle against the back of the horse. The gentle weaning of the saddle reminds the horse that saddling is a regular, convenient exercise that encourages him to remain calm during this and subsequent saddling activities.
If you lower the saddle smoothly, make sure that the RCA's, the chest collars and the stirrups do not drop from the saddle and the saddle upright. When one of these things slips, it could land under the saddle and you have to begin again. You could scare the horse, too.
When a horse is saddled, a single individual can be slightly hurt. When it is flying time, consider using insect repellent on your horse. When the horse fights flying, you could be kicked or beaten on the horse's skull. You can even see a horse swinging its dick in your face or your eye.
When you saddle, keep the holster and the guide cable on your horse, then tighten the reins when you are finished or rider. When the horse is prepared to bind the floor (without movement while untied), that's okay. When not, keep the horse tethered to the saddle with the holster and the guide cable.
Always cuddle the front saddle belt first when you saddle. Always disconnect the front RCA last. This is the most important element that holds the saddle securely and erectly on the horse. For example, if you fasten the chest strap or the backrest first when you saddle, the saddle could slide under the horse and cause a heavy shipwreck for the horse, the gear and any persons or objects in the vicinity.
