    These templates relate very well to Bighorn, Fabtron, Simco and several other Makers

    So another question.... the barrel saddle I have been using pinches a bit right where the top conchos are. But then it sits on her withers. I only used this for short runs in Saturdays games so don't worry I didn't hurt her. Does this mean the saddle is not wide enough or something else? I'm really clueless with western saddles, and I've even read the saddle fitting sticky here...

    Haha ok what about this one?
    15" western saddle

    It's ugly as all get out but it's also cheap as dirt....

    I want it.. only because it's bright orange (Or is that red?) and would match my tack, LoL You could ask if you can do a trial with it for a day and see if it fits/is comfy.

    Not a bad price though

    Lol it says orange but it looks like a faded red. There's no ties or d-rings, can I put those on those useless concho things?

    Mine doesn't have D rings either, it makes me sad sometimes. I use those flap-thingies that you attach a breast collar or back cinch to(I know, I'm really technical) to tie down my saddle bags. I also use hay bail twine because the straps of my saddle bags don't always reach. It also keeps things from jumping around too much.

    I suppose if you were really creative, you could sew some kind of ring on somehow.

    Yea.... I don't sew, especially not well enough to trust my abilities to hold stuff to my saddle. I don't understand those fru fru things on saddles.... I want usable stuff.
