- Saddle your horse as usual.
- Make sure your cinch is adjusted with D-rings in the center of his girth floor.
- Take a photo as described below, and send it to EMAIL, or send as a Facebook message . The photo should be a side view of your horse saddled after a short warm up ride with the cinch still tight. Put the stirrup over the saddle seat and take a direct side view photo including the cinch/girth, latigo (or billets) and saddle. If the photographer is a tall person, please make sure the camera is at same height as mid-line of the horse's body. This photo needs to be taken after a warm up ride, because the saddle will settle into the best position on the horse's back.
- Have a tape measure handy. As soon as you take the picture, un-cinch your horse and measure the overall length of your current cinch (to outside edge of end buckles) with a tape measure. Many cinches stretch, or have mis-marked sizing. Measure as quickly as possible so there's less time for cinch to rebound.
With this photo and length measurement, i can help you determine the width and style that would be best for your horse/saddle combination, and which buckles will work on the style chosen. The majority of the time, a particular saddle will use the same width cinch on many horses because of the riggin placement.
Then we can begin the order process.
