Girthing the Saddle down



When you shorten the girth, don't yank on it.


They don't like that. Don't yank. They don't like that feeling.


Instead, pull towards you and lift.


Feels way better to your horse.


Don't yank the billets up. Instead, pull it towards you.


Your horse will appreciate it so much more and be so much happier.


It's a wonderful technique.


Instead of yanking up which is more intrusive, pull towards you and lift.


And it feels way, way more comfortable for the horse.
