Well, can you share a picture of your western saddle so that we'll know what you already have?
Regardless, the absolute bare minimum you'll need to have on your saddle will be the front cinch, latigo, and off billet. The latigo is a long piece of leather or nylon strapping that you wrap between the cinch and the D-rings on the saddle. The off-billet is basically the same thing except you use it on the off side of the cinch. As for cinches, there are about a million options.
But, you may already have these things on your saddle. That's why I ask for the picture.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
