    Notice how everyone is complaining that there is no girth on the horses saddle… Yea well there is another video after this one ends with the same girl saying “How to attach a girth to a saddle” lol

    i agree so much, on every single horse video i watch, there are ALWAYS people, mainly girls, who think they actually know it all and leave snotty comments or try to correct the owners ‘mistakes’. Im like, just watch the god damn video, it helps certain people out there (including myself) and keep ur techniques to urself and ur horse!! :’) x

    Hahaha i love how everyone is talking about how that pads are messed up… They clearly are not?? God people are so hypocritical. These people are just trying to help. Why do some people feel like they can critique them?

    I realize that. The comment I was responding to said that, “I think you should have a lead rope for sure, but I don’t think you are safe just cause you tie them up. If they get claustrophobic they have no where to go.” That’s why I said there should be a quick release knot. You need to understand the conversation before you jump in and make assumptions.

    You cant really you can always just buy a new one or if you go to a profesional you might be able to get them to help but its the thing that keeps the saddle in place so if its broken then you get it fixed, it wont be as strong and that could be a problem.
