Hi there!
I'm glad you found our stories so interesting! Nah, there's nothing wrong with the saddle, just with his sanity. He's had 4 different saddles on him and reacts the same way to each one... "IT'S A MOOOOOOOONSTER!!!!" To this day he's very jumpy about everything, but recently has undergone a bit of training, and I'm working with him daily. He's starting to let me handle him again and pet him, but he's still the biggest pain in the world to catch and deal with otherwise. I personally cannot ride him, he's just too much now, but the guy who's been working with him is trying to get him under control. He has the most trouble with mounting and dismounting, which actually is what made me believe the rainrot was hurting him in the first place! But, now I know, it's not. He doesn't have a sore anything, nothing's rubbing him, and there's no infection of any sort. He's just strange. We're actually suspecting now that someone's beaten the daylights out of him, because he has this mystery scar on his back right hip, and that is the only foot and part of his body that he will actually fight over. He's never kicked at another horse or a person until I found a farrier that could actually handle his feet (boy, did the horses like him too!!!), but it did take a long time(a little under an hour), and he even kicked at Mike when he tried to handle his back right foot. We think it was probably someone attempting cowboy shoeing, or just some jerk of a farrier.
Either way, VERY slowly but surely, he's coming around...
