Then comes the western saddle lots more work and lunging
English saddle and lots of ground work and verbal commands.
All Saddled up, and she has been lunged for many months now. This is the day to place a body on her back.
It is an unnatural event for a horse to have a person on it's back.
This is where the foal imprinting will pay off for me, the one who gets the job of riding until broke.
Acts like an angel, not one bad habit. I Was so very pleased with Keike.

Horse behavior is best understood from the perspective that horses are prey animals with a well-developed fight or flight instinct. Their first response to a threat is to flee, although they are known to stand their ground and defend themselves or their offspring in cases where flight is untenable, such as when a foal would be threatened.

Nonetheless, because their physiology is also suited to a number of work- and entertainment-related tasks, humans domesticated horses thousands of years ago, and they have served humans ever since. Through selective breeding, some breeds of horses have been bred to be quite docile, particularly certain large draft horses. On the other hand, most light horse riding breeds were developed for speed, agility, alertness and endurance; building on natural qualities that extended from their wild ancestors.

The instincts of horses can be used to human advantage to create a bond between human and horse. These techniques vary, but are part of the art of horse training. This is why we love imprinting the foal right away.

For a horse, there is nothing natural about carrying a rider. Horses aren't really designed to carry humans, and having something on its back goes against a horse's basic instinct of self-protection. In nature, the only thing that's going to leap onto a horse's back is a predator that's trying to kill and eat the horse.
