    Hello, I just bought a second-hand CTK endurance saddle that has a 3 point rigging set up and I was wondering if I can cinch it like a western saddle (which I guess means ignoring the back ring and just using the one under the fender) or do I have to buy a converter to make it work with a...

    Has anybody every created a makeshift back cinch on a western? My saddle does not have a loop to connect one in the back, but it bounces a lot. I'm not sure if it does when I ride. Just would like to prevent it as much as possible from going all over. Didn't know if attaching a strap over the...
