Question Western Riders: Poll

Do you use a back cinch when you ride?

It depends on where I am riding. If I am just riding around the property, then there is no need for it. For heavy trail riding, absolutely. And I don't in barrel racing either.

Only when I rope or do reined cow horse. But not for reining.

Is that also known as a "bucking strap"? If it is, I never use one. I had a saddle once that had one and I used it then but none of my saddles even have one.....

I use a back cinch, I never take it off my saddle

I use one during heavy trail rides like if I am going up and down hills constantly. I teach all of my horses to accept a back cinch because you never know when you need one on them.

For high-speed things like running drill, heavy trail riding, or trick riding, I use a back cinch for extra support to keep my saddle in one spot and not tilting at all. For normal training though, there's no need.

No, never! I know how to do them up and stuff but I have no use for them. I'm a western pleasure girl, and the trails I've got don't really require too much hard work seeing as my trails are the beach

No, bucking straps are used on broncs in rodeos. A back cinch is used to keep the back of the saddle down when you rope etc. I use one because it's there and I like it. It also has a connector strap that hooks to the front cinch so that it doesn't get back far enough to become a "problem". ;)
As you can see the back cinch is not located at the flank. That is where the bucking strap would be.
