Just really quickly, it's important to know these Basic Parts of the saddle:


This is the pommel.


This is the cantle.


This is the skirt.


These are the panels (remember they have to sit flat on the horse's back, not curve up, see how that's sitting really nicely.)


The points are here, that's where we make sure it's not pinching.


These are the billet straps.


This is the girth of course.


These are the stirrup leathers and the stirrup irons.


And there you go.


Those are the only parts of the saddle that you guys actually need to know. Oh, this is the seat. Pommel, cantle, skirt, seat, panels, billets, stirrup leather, stirrup iron.
