Don’t assume it’s a training issue until you rule out pain! This is classic behavior for a horse who doesn’t like something about his tack. He likes you, he likes working in the arena at liberty, he is a good boy until he has a saddle on and weight on top of it. Check the saddle fit, girth, pads, bridle, bit, everything he’s wearing before you assume it’s a training problem!
