Saddle Bags

Ok, I'm going on an all day ride next month up here in the beautiful PNW! This will be my first ride in this type of terrain. I've always used a cantle bag but with the weather up here I would prefer to use full saddle bags "just in case" I need it. Getting lost, stranded, ect, ect. Now I've never used full saddle bags and need some help with attaching it to my saddle!! I don't want to look like an idiot to all my horse friends I just met here, so, can anyone please explain how to attach it to the back of my saddle so that it's not flapping and banging? Pictures .would help me so much!! Help


Thanks so much!

Okay, well then, I am assuming it's a bag with straps? Then you would have to run the straps through the cinch rings and back through the buckle. It should kind of be like the belly straps on a blanket. Sorry if that explanation was totally unhelpful. I would take pictures, but I'm in school right now :/

I'll be attaching them to the saddle strings. The Saddle bags have 4 small D rings two on top and two near the bottom to tie it to the saddle. No straps! Thanks for the relpy!!

I ride in OR and I usually take just a cantle bag even in the winter. I have a lightweight emergency raincoat, rain pants, extra waterproof gloves, a windbreaker (holdover from summer), halter and leadrope. Sometimes my lunch is in there. Of course, if it is pouring down rain to begin with, I don't ride!

Any other stuff (lighter, tp, snacks, leatherman, wild rag, camera, phone, hat cover, chap stick, ibuprofen) is in my horn bags. Water bottle hangs off the saddle.

I have double sided clips that attach to the d rings on my saddle and the d rings on my saddle bag. No matter how much you tie down a saddle bag it's still going to flop around.

Run the strings through the D's and tie a square knot.
