Willie must of had past bad experience with tieing up putting the saddle on. I have worked with him and it takes patience and a lot of physical energy for one person. He is more nervous then misbehaving so he must of been punished in the past. Once saddle is on he is a great trail horse. He has no other issues and he gets along with other horses. He is a love bug when in stall and while brushing him. I am 68 years old and i do not have the physical energy to spend on this horse.
