An english crupper will attach around your billet straps, like the loops on an english saddle pad would to hold it in place.

Did you get the right style of crupper? If you got the kind with just the metal T part, It slides in the gullet and you just pull back as much as you can until its snug.

Look on this page and you'll see a picture of a crupper adapter and how it is installed... that's how you'd do the metal one.

That is an english crupper. It does NOT fit on the billets in any way.

Take the "T", line it the long way in the groove between the two sides of the panels (along the spine of the saddle). Once in the groove, turn it sideways so that the wings of the "T" slide under the panels. Pull it back toward the back of the saddle until the rear panel stops it.

Unbuckle one side of the tail piece and slide it under the tail. Then, adjust the length along the back until the tail loop hangs about an inch below the dock.

Hope this helps. If you are wanting this for a westrn saddle......

Allison's description and the photo in the link makes more sense. It should be attached more to the rear of the saddle than toward the front.
