I've been refreshing my memory on saddle fit/position (have some concerns about my saddle sitting too far forward on my mare's shoulders), and I came across this video, in which the rider recommends crossing the billets before doing up the girth:
I've never heard of this, and am really curious about why you would do this. Any thoughts?
Also, can anyone recommend good videos or tutorials on checking for shoulder clearance? I can't get good pics of tacking up my own horse because of the terrible lighting in our aisle way- when I have someone around to help me, I'll try to snap some good squared up pics of her saddled outside.
