Sacking Out, Riding Jihad!

Sacking out is a good lesson in teaching a horse how to deal with his fears.
It is a very important step in saddling and riding. If a horse isn't used
to things touching his sides, legs, etc.. what is he going to do first time
out on the trail when a bush brushes his legs?

Wanted to let the group know that I am finally up on Jihad!!!! Without
sacking him out he would of been terrified. We spent 1 month on ground work
and in that work I've sacked him out with a rope, blanket, stick, and white
plastic bag on a stick. He learned to stand and deal with his fears and now
he is pretty fearless about mounting and learning to rein. YEAH!

Just my .02 worth:}
