How to cinch a western saddle

I use a tool that tells me the average searches for the phrase ‘how
to cinch a western saddle
’.  I was surprised at the
number that showed up.  It was relatively high.  How to
cinch a western saddle is pretty standard.  Slip the cinch
under the stomach of a horse up by their front legs (towards there
chest) and cinch it up.  You want it back a little ways, at
least a few inches back.  One thing to remember, is all
horses are different in size so you may have to adjust the straps
holding the cinch, either let it out or bring it in.

How to cinch a western saddle

This video called how to cinch a western saddle mainly
focuses on the back cinch.  I always remember when I was
pretty small asking my father about that cinch.  He left it
loose.  That sure didn’t make sense to me.

We roped a lot of calves during branding.  Nothing like tying
onto a steer, but if we did rope a steer and the steer pulled back
in front of the horse and the rope was tied off to the saddle horn
you sure didn’t want that saddle flying up on you.  So it is
important to know how to cinch a western saddle and
especially how to adjust that back cinch.  I broke a horse
one time that constantly had a problem with that back cinch.
I guess sometimes you meet up with a horse that just doesn’t get
it – that the cinch needs to be there.
