Buckleless Western Cinch

I was given a very nice old woven front girth. The ends are padded with sheepskin and have a heavy tooled leather circle. However the steel rings at the ends are not buckles, so I am wondering how to fasten them to the billets?

Did you post a picture, OP? My computer is not at the best right now. I suspect, from your description, that you will have to use a latigo on each side of the saddle for your cinch. That was the norm for the old style saddles while you have a latigo on the off (right) side and a buckle setup on the left as the standard for the new saddles.

There are 2 options for how to do it.

1) You can tie the girth, which a lot of people do anyway

Or
2) You can try the way that one of the members here does her cinches

isn't this backwards? Every western saddle i've seen made in the time i've been alive has had a billet on the right (off side) and a latigo on the left (near side). My own saddle made in 1995 is like this.

Yes - you are totally correct. Apparently, I will not make good navigator material.
