Thanks for the saddle compliments! I bought it last year, because it would actually fit his high withers!Lol! I had other saddles, but none of them fit him well.
I've worked hard to get him to stand still...trust me, not one of his strong points...tehehe. It's not that he's nervous or anything, he just wants to go riding...Lol!
If you all have issues with standing still, just make not standing still 'difficult'...When you get on (or have asked them to stop), and they start off without your cue, grab one rein and swing them into a circle. Keep leg pressure off, and let him circle until he stops, then work the other side. If after doing these repetitively for a while, put them into a working trot in both directions, and only take the pressure off of them when you want to stop and relax; if they move once you have asked them to stop, put them back into the circles. Help them figure out that unless you ask them to, they need to stand still; by making not standing still hard work, they will begin to look forward to you allowing them to stop!
