Major Girth/Cinch problem, plz help!!

I Just got my treeless saddle, and the seller said that it could be used w/ a western cinch if I wanted to. I Got it and it has to be used with an english girth! My problem is that I need something contoured, like a roping cinch so it won't slip and a D ring so that it can be used with a breast collar. The girth straps start really low, at the lowest point and I don't know if an English to western converter is even locical........

Please help, here is a sight for one that is the exact same.

There are converters you can buy, for english to western and vice versa, like this: http://www.eaglerivertack.com/store/...d7bc1be0570689

I don't have time to research them right now, you might be able to find a cheaper one. Mohairs like the one you posted do seem to be cheaper in the western style though...maybe you could save a bit.

I will say if you think $90 is expensive...I'll send you the bill for my next dressage girth!

I don't think that converters would work, the billets are REALLY far down and then i'd have to add tie-strap and off billet as well.... so I don't think there would be much room for the cinch......

I also need help on what size of cinch I would need because the girth straps start so low....... please any endurance treeless people please help!!

Mmm...I see your point. Well, I did find cheaper mohairs with english buckles, but no d-ring. I also found one that was english buckles with a d-ring, but it wasn't contoured and it was only 8 dollars less. If you move to fleece or leather, the prices start to come down. Also, I wouldn't worry about the position of the billets being so low, the girth should fit something like this:





Not all treeless saddle flaps are as long as yours, but its not unusual.

Right now I'm open to pretty much anything, as long as it comes in smaller sizes like (20-26") contoured is preffered and so is mohair and w/ a D ring, but a D ring isn't needed because I found this
