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 western girth?

I have never had a saddle with this type of rigging and I don't necessarily like it, so I'm hoping there's an easy way around it. Thanks for any info.

I use both methods of v rigging depending on the horse. Method 1 moves the rigging slightly back, method 2 moves it even farther back. You want saddle stability. You want the rigging set up so the horse doesn't get girth sores. V rigging is best for gaited horses as they tend to get pinched more than non gaited horses.
