I decided that it was time for Mia to try on the saddle. I used the lightest saddle that we have, (it's an Albetta) cinched it up-not too tight, and then we walked around. The only thing she did was try to eat the stirrup. I then slid it off her back without any problem from her. It was getting late, so the picture is kind of dark, but I was really excited about this.
