The saddle we bought came with leathers and a girth. Unfortunately, the girth was too short so we headed to a local tack shop to purchase a longer girth and a set of irons (stirrups) before heading to the stables.
We brought LBR into the barn for grooming and put his saddle on for the roundpen work. He worked very well with saddle and bridle. It was a very warm day in Central Texas so after LBR's workout, we gave him a cooling bath/rinse.
We let him graze in the common area until he dried and then returned him to his pasture where we led to the water and treated afterwards at the paddock gate.
