He seemed OK with her full weight on him, so with a litte help from her dad and boyfriend Kirstin made the leap all the way over to his back.
He was a little dancy prancy so with a little bit of help from some hay, he stood still and let Kirsin set on his back. She moved all around his back just letting him get used to the feel of a person on top of him.
Sunday was all Kirstin. She put the bridle on him-first time for that- and then got on him. He had no problems today with her being up on him. He even moved on cue and was responding to the bridle when Kirstin asked him for a turn.
