I need some help about a rear cinch...

I have no idea how to tie the rear cinch to the saddle.
How do I tie the red circled pieces together? Do I need another strap or something?

So, there is two of one strap- the part with the little holes for adjusting the back cinch ya know? There is one on the saddle and one on the back cinch- that's your problem, you only need one. What you could do is untie the little tie on the one separate from the saddle (lets call it strap 1), and take off the one on the saddle (you may need to cut it off if you can't get the back cinch off), and then retie strap 1 onto the saddle. Make sense?

See?

In the second picture, you see that part you've circled? That part of the strap is the same to the part you've circled in the first picture. The first picture is the complete rear cinch while the second picture has the rear cinch down to where those buckles are on the first picture.

The difference between the two is that the second picture/second rear cinch is a bit fancier in how it attaches to the saddle. The first one ties on to the saddle, like the top of a latigo does, while the second kinda wraps itself on.


Hopefully that makes sense?

Haha, the horse world is.. Very complex! It took me a little bit of cocking my head- the full back cinch only has two adjustable holes.. Confusing huh!

The strap with the buckle holes in it (of which you seem to have a duplicate) is called a billet strap. A rear billet on the near side, and a rear off billet on the off side. The rear cinch ( or "flank" cinch) with buckle to each of these billets. Most folks leave it buckled to the off rear billet, just as the front cinch is left tied to the front off billet.
