Red face I am embarrased to ask but...

Could someone post a pic of how to put the stirrup leathers on an English saddle I know, I know, how stupid am I, but in my defence I've never seen one except for mine that I just bought so I don't know what it's suppose to look like or what goes where

Don't ever feel stupid for asking a question! Believe me, we've all had to start from somewhere and we've all had to ask questions!

No need what-so-ever to feel emberassed or ashamed!

It wasn't until 2 years ago when I learnt how to properly put on a flash noseband. Don't use one, BUT! I learnt!! And I was 31 years old. So again - we've all had to learn something new here and there.

THANK YOU!!!! When I get home I'll have to put them on. Now if it would ever stop snowing/raining I could actually try my saddle out!!!

He-he-he... I didn't know how to tight the Western saddle when I first saw one (I used only English before). There are no stupid questions, there is a shame if people don't want to answer!

LOL, ok well I don't feel so bad then I guess there's really no way of knowing how to do somthing unless you've seen or done it before!!
I got them put on and it was quite easy since I had some instructions, LOL!! Better to ask then to do it wrong I guess!
Thanks guys!

The first time I ever cinched up a western saddle, I did it wrong. I found out afterwards, and felt sick. This was the same horse that bolted on me. Ugh! Never ride a horse without a knowledgable horse person nearby, preferably beside you. And never put (or place yourself as one) a green rider on a green broke horse. Especially a green broke Arab who is known to bolt. I'm amazed I still want to ride.

Ok, sorry for rambling. My point is, as long as you ask before you saddle up, then it's not dumb. If you ask after nearly dying and not realizing, then it might be. :)
