It’s a bridle… I’m bored… What’s over there?
Somehow I got it into my head that Fin had never worn a bridle. So today I went out with my lunging bridle and a box of sugar cubes.
He looks distressed, doesn’t he?
I realized very quickly that either I am a magical horse whisperer the likes of which the world has never seen, or else my brain was confused and he had been bridled before.
The seller confirmed later in the day that yes, he’s had a bridle on. Often. I guess I should cancel the production plans for my Magical Horse Training DVDs.
Tomorrow we’ll be trying on saddles. He’s been saddle broke, so this will be a very simple and straightforward process: I will put every one of my three saddles on his back and discover that not one of them comes close to fitting him. Then I can go saddle hunting, buy a saddle that will only fit him for a year or so, and then repeat the process, and soon I will have eight or nine saddles and one horse.
If the arithmetic seems off there, don’t worry. I’m just allowing for the fact that saddles multiply like rats when left unattended in cool, dark places. This is how I ended up with three saddles in the first place.
