    SMRobs thank you so much for this thread! Could I ask a request for those of us just starting out western with very limited resources and experienced people to call upon? Could you add to this a correctly fitting saddle? I know you did the cinches but the actual fitting of the saddle would be fantastic.

    I second this motion! I have absolutely no idea if a western saddle fits; how it fits, what a fitted saddle looks like.. I know English but that doesn't help with a western saddle. Also, anything about wither height and saddle fitting too, if anyone has a clue because I sure don't

    Just bumping this back up to the top.

    I would make a saddle fitting thread, but that isn't one of my best areas. On horses I handle, I can tell whether the saddle fits or not and/or what saddle might fit them best, but most of what I do know is based in instinct. I honestly wouldn't have any idea how to articulate it into a coherent thread.

    When I was a horse crazy kid I noticed that the old cowboys (Alberta ranches) used cinches that barely came across the horse's belly, with the ring below the elbow. The narrow cinch straps allowed good elbow movement. I was always asking questions just so I could be near the horse.

    Loved it, thank you! It cleared up a few things I was a bit confused about. I do wish you had done a section on where to put the saddle and saddle pad though, it bugs me to no end when I see the saddle pad slipped all the way back
