Convert rigging on endurance saddle

Is this possible? I really like this saddle but obviously it is rigged for english. Would I be able to convert it to use a western cinch/fenders and stirrups or no?

Tucker Equitation Endurance Saddle - eBay (item 250843540283 end time Jul-02-11 20:06:07 PDT)

I found this: http://www.amazon.com/Girth-Converter-English-Aussie-Saddles/dp/B001L9NVA0
Would I need two of those converters? Thanks for any help!

Cashel makes English to Western converters that you can buy.

Cashel Company

As far as restyling the saddle to make it Western rigging, it would cost you a bundle of money.

Pardon my ignorance, but the saddle doesn't come with the leathers or stirrups...so couldn't I just add western fenders and whatever stirrups I want? Would I need two converters?

If it's English rigged it has a recessed stirrup leather bar, and there's no way for you to put Western fenders on it. It's simply not made like a Western saddle, and it'd cost you more to convert it than it would to just buy a Tucker already Western rigged.

Western fenders are actually part of the saddle, whereas English stirrup leathers are an add-on item. You can't just sew on Western fenders and make it a Western saddle. The saddle is balanced to English standards, which means the weight distribution is different than a Western.

Cashel sells two converters to a pack, if you still want to consider buying the saddle.

Really though, what you want is a Western Tucker, not an English. Instead of trying to mish-mash to make something fit, you'd be better off looking for what you really want and passing on this particular saddle.
