The only stupid question is the one not asked. A bucking strap is found on a Western saddle and is also called a "rear cinch".

Not all Western saddles have this type of setup, but it's basically a rear strap that can help prevent the saddle from tipping forward....many roping saddles have them.

Hope that helps.

It is also a small strap put on the front of an english saddle that you can grab onto to try to prevent falling off.

No, that's called a grab strap, not a bucking strap.

Maybe that's what you call it, but around here we call that a bucking strap.

Look in any on-line or paper catalogue under English tack and you won't find 'bucking strap'. You'll find grab strap.

A bucking strap is part of a Western saddle rigging. A grab strap is for a nervous or unbalanced English rider.

Western saddles don't need grab straps because they have horns.

That's funny, I've never heard of a rear cinch called a bucking strap. The only thing I've ever heard called a bucking strap is a bucking strap/flank strap (actual strap used for bronc's).

Everyone around here also calls the strap on the front of the English saddle a bucking strap. I have no idea if that is the correct name of it but it certainly comes in handy when the horse starts bucking!

just like a rear cinch is called a bucking strap, a grab strap is also called a bucking strap.

That doesn't make the terminology right, just because you might call it something other than what it is.

Calling a rear cinch a bucking strap doesn't make it one, just because that's what some people call it. As Macabre said, a true bucking strap is what's used on a rodeo bronc.

A rear cinch is just that, a rear cinch. Doesn't make it a bucking strap any more than a grab strap is one.
