What are all These Straps for?

Okay - ignore the cute little sandwich case on the offside of the saddle! The large strap going under the saddle is the main girth, acting as all main girths do on every type of saddle.

The smaller strap is called a balance girth and does just what it says. It helps to balance the back on the saddle and keep it from slipping and-or turning.

But now that you've told me to ignore it, I want to know about the cute little sandwich case! Is that actually what it's for? ;)

Yes - the sandwich case is for exactly that!..oh and a bit of Sherry too!...ahhh - but that will have to be for another post!

Eheheh... well, far as I'm concerned, the sandwich case needs to be bigger!
