There are a number of videos out there such as this one: Western Riding Tying The Cinch - VidoEmo - Emotional Video Unity

The second way to tie-off the billet instead of the knot as shown in the video, is to use the tongue of the cinch in the proper hole of the billet. The balance of the billet is run through the keeper to keep it from just hanging there.

This is also a good video showing the other way to tie off a cinch. He also dose what I do and tighten it 3 times so that your horse dose not get cinchy.

I think the term you are looking for instead of billet is latigo. Billet is usually only used to refer to the cinch attachment on the offside.

LOL

I know but since the OP is an English rider, I used that term for them to better understand. Should have explained it better - thanks for pointing that out, Kevin.
