Hi, this is Mara Keith-Hunter for Expert Village.
Today I would be talking about how to tack up a horse. Next we are going to put the saddle
on. It is important to make sure first to move the horse over and give yourself plenty
of room. Over. Next you would lift the saddle up and gently place the saddle down on the
horses back. Next you want to make sure that you pull the saddle pad and the back pad up
to the gullet of the saddle to avoid any tight pull down on the saddle pad because that can
make your horse a little bit sore. The next thing we are going to do is attach the saddle
pad to the billet of the saddle. To do this you are going to unvelcro, go around the billet
and revelcro it to itself. Now if you have the saddle pad and the back pad, you might
now be able to attach the underneath pads as well which case you can smoothly tuck it
under. It is important to make sure that both sides are done.
