how to saddle a horse

first you catch the horse with a halter and tie it to a sturdy fence. then grab your saddle and saddle blanket, put on your saddle blanket and make sure it is straight. Then throw on your saddle, and make sure all the straps are hanging on the side. Then do up your front strap (also known as your front cinch) by taking the leather strap and putting it throw the metal ring and do it again and make sure the strap is outward after. Then do up your back cinch. It is just like a belt . Make sure if your just riding to have the back cinch looser. Then do up you breast collar or front strap so it is a little loose but it looks good. Then you will grab your bridle and and take off your halter and quickly put your bridle on and make sure every thing is fitting good and it is tight enough that it wont fall off but loose enough that its not choking your horse. Then before getting on tighten up your front cinch and tighten it until its tight (your will know if its to loose your saddle will start to roll over) then get on and ride that pony!!
