Willy had a HUGE knot in his mane today! Sometimes the kids here do a braid and then leave it. If it's not maintained over the next couple days it turns into a rats nest! Poor boy! Steve came to ride with me so we grabbed Riddle as well, luckily his short mane doesn't have any tangle issues.
Steve grabbed the saddle, the older Wintec we'd used before and placed it on Riddle, a little too far back so I showed him the proper place to put the saddle and made an "air gap" into the pommel with the saddle pads. We tried out too girths, both being too long so Steve went back to the tack room in search of another while I tacked up Willy.
