    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
