Clancey's First Saddle!!!

Cool Slideshows

Just as soon as Tony took Daffinah out of the round pen, the day of her evaluation, Travis led Clancey in so that he could put a saddle on him for the first time!

At first Clancey could care less that Travis put a saddle blanket on him...then the saddle...even when Travis cinched it up, Clancey didn't think a thing about the saddle! Except maybe it was something he could put in is mouth. It wasn't until about ten minutes later when Travis was leading Clancey around the pen, that Clancey reared in surprise that something was cinched around his belly!!! He bellowed at the same time and I am surprised I got a picture of him. I am getting used to just looking through the camera so that I have a better chance of capturing that "special moment" easier.

Travis allowed Clancey to buck out some and then led him around the pen some more. After Clancey bucked a couple more times he decided the saddle wasn't such a bad thing and shouldered his burden as if he had been born with one on his back!! Travis let Clancey carry the saddle back to the truck and was rewarded with a treat of Ash leaves! No rodeo tonight...all this took place in a matter of maybe 20 minutes!!!

My favorite picture in this bunch is the one of Clancey holding the stirrup straight out!!!

Great pictures. I feel like I'm right there watching it the way you describe everything.

That's interesting that Clancey had a delayed reaction to the saddle. I suppose we're a lot like that, too. For me, sometimes I plunge into something...then lose my confidence!

Daffina seems like such a nice horse. I'm proud of how well she is doing...and that she trys hard.

Great pictures!

Those are great pics! I would have to have nerves of steel to do all that! I'm content with just riding the ones we have that someone else broke for us - LOL!

Hi Midlife Mom! It's amazing how attached we get to our horses. They are part of the family around here. I'm glad you had a great time at the Dixie Stampede.

I love the way you have these pictures on your blog. You feel like you're really there. They really add something to M'n'C. I agree with Callie and Rising Rainbow, the bucking picture does show so much energy. This is obviously a horse with a lot of spirit!
