If you do put on a Western saddle with a rear cinch, be sure you lunge him right up through a canter before riding him. I broke my foot from being bucked off a horse that I didn't take that precaution with (I landed very wrong and my spur twisted causing the bone in my instep to fracture). Now, every new horse I bring in, if I haven't seen him ride in a rear cinch, gets lunged first!
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
