Circle Y Fender bottoms offset?

We bought a really nice Circle Y show saddle last year but can't figure out why the bottom of the fender (the thin part that holds the stirrup) on the right side is a good 6" longer than on the right side. However, the stirrups hang evenly when they're on the same notch, so the left side makes up for the lost length somewhere. It also appears that the right side is set much higher up on the tree than the left side. There's no way either is a replacement, as they both have the exact tooling and serial number. Any guesses on why this is like this?

Is the actual Fender longer?

Could be they cut them the wrong length when making the saddle.

If the Fenders are the same length could be the adjustment leathers are not adjusted the same, they form a full circle when buckled and rotated thru the tree. Maybe that needs to be pulled thru on way or the other to equalize the position

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

I suspect one fender is up higher than the other. Look at where the top of the fender sits, one may be up closer to the stirrup slot in the bars. It should be just a case of evening them up. Be prepared that the leather may not budge as it often becomes "frozen" in place. Bonus if it slides fairly easily.

Ya, one has probably shifted. Grab the back piece with one hand and the front peice with the other and Pull the either the front or back depending on what you want to do. I had to do this with my saddle as it made them even shorter without having to put more holes. Bonus. See the video below. It will explain how to do it towards the end.

Nice video, that is what I was trying to say earlier, it is always easier to explain that way, than with Typing
