I recenlty bought a saddle w two latigos (i.e., latigo on the off side, too). At first, I oiled a spare halfbreed I had to replace the latigo on the off side....I guess just because that is what I have always used. Before I changed it out, I put the saddle on my mare to scrutinize the tree fit. Then I decided, since it was there, to go ahead and cinch it down to see how the cinch I picked for it fit. Then I discovered I like the latigo on the off side better! It is easier to center the cinch. Ya learn something new everyday!
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
