the off billet would work good for you like "cherie" said. I myself use a long latigo on both sides if I can get a camera today I will take a few pictures for you.

I would have to agree with what is said above. 10-15 bucks is cheap to prevent a wreck and damage to a saddle.you can buy them at most any tack or farm supply store. Tractor supply has a huge selection of nylon and leather. I keep extra laying around all the time. They come in handy for all kinda of stuff, including keeping a saddle on. Not much to add about the tying of the Latigos. The link pretty much cover it.

Here is a picture of an off side (right side) billet its just a leather or nylon strap folded in half with holes punch in it.

here is a nylon long latigo on the near side (left side)

Here is a leather near side long latigo. It is not through the slot because we are short on short cinches and I needed it to be a little tighter so I moved it up until I can buy a shorter cinch.

I hope this helps feel free to ask any more questions.

That small leather strap with the buckle is an English iron strap.

It WILL NOT hold a saddle on. Especially if it is old and ESPECIALLY on a young horse.

All he has to do is start bucking or rub it and catch it on the fence and that strap will snap and you'll have yourself a traumatized possibly even injured horse and a broken saddle.

much cheaper to go buy a $15 latigo and off billet

Do you have any pictures of the saddle on the horse?

People with true credibility and integrity don't need to tell other people how great they are.
