Here's the deal, I grew up riding western - I have taken apart, cleaned, and reassembled saddles before --- BUT --- it was MANY years ago. Apparently, it doesn't all come back to you.
We got DD a saddle for Christmas. When it arrived, we went and purchased a girth for it, but I am sitting here staring at it with NO idea how the heck I am supposed to attach the darn thing to the saddle. Try as I might, I cannot remember. I can find all sorts of articles on how to cinch it up, but nothing on how to actually get the darn thing on there in the first place.
It is a synthetic and came with some nylon/web straps on either side - I have always had all leather saddles and can't help but wonder if my first move needs to be to replace the nylon straps with leather, they just don't seem that substantial.
If anyone can break this down "barney-style" for me, I would most appreciate it.
