From the pic it looks like the saddle definitely could stand to be moved back a bit!

Very informative link, thanks for passing that on!

I think I'll try it in 7/8 position. But here's my beginner's question: How do I do it? I only have the one leather strap attached in the "full" position. Do I buy another strap and somehow tie the two together?

Switch your strap to the back ring, come down threw the cinch ring then up to the saddle ring and secure. This will move the cinch back. Cinch sores become scar tissue which is weak. Once it's there it may heal but is easily opened again. Some people claim it's because the legs weren't pulled forward after cinching.

Keep in mind you have to rig both sides equally...
Both sides either full, 7/8 or 3/4.

^^^^^^ very good point DB. OP, my strap will slide from one side to the other without removing it. Look at the top, it may be that the middle metal between both rings may not go all the way to the top (like mine) and you can slide it to whatever side you want. I do mine using both so I lace left then right then left until I get to the end. Which is the 7/8" and in that case you do not have to move it at all. If you want to use 3/4" then it needs to be moved to the rear one. And as DB said, make sure your other side is the same.
