I have read the article by Theresa Sandin , I found it mostly well written and informative ( liked the pretty pictures ) ,BUT before I start to use it as my bible I would just like to say
In the section on bits and bitting she makes reference to AN ENGLISH GAG .
As an English Saddler, from England, making English saddlery ( whatever will we think of next ) I would say ---
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN ENGLISH GAG.
If you were to walk into a Gibsons saddlery in newmarket ( now 100 years old ) England and ask for an english gag they wouldn't have a clue what you were talking about
The gag that she is talking about is a CHELTENHAM GAG.
SO ---- If she cannot get this simple piece of information correct - what else has she not got correst ?
Just think about it .
