Aussie to Western cinch converter?
 
Hi! I've got an older Aussie saddle which is comfortable and fits my horse well but the cinch/girth is something I continually have trouble getting tight enough because it is just hard to get a good grip on the straps. It doesn't have the double-buckle configuration as an English girth does but has one buckle and one strap. Does anyone know where I might find a converter for this type of Aussie cinch? I've checked many sites and have only found the English type double-buckle converters.
Thanks!

Sometimes you'll need to get a Double Billet Surcingle to go with the converter. You can see both on this web page:

Girts and Girthing Systems
