At right: The arrow is pointing to a maker's mark on a saddle. Many, but not all saddles, will have a maker's mark identifying the maker of the saddle. Note: A maker's mark might be anywhere on a used saddle (for example, on the latigo keeper and other places), not just where shown in the photo.

Western Saddle Rigging Positions

When buying a new or used Western saddle, it's important to understand rigging positions. Here is a quick breakdown of what those common rigging positions mean.

Full Rigging: The front cinch position is the full distance from the cantle to the pommel. This puts the front cinch directly beneath the pommel of the saddle.

7/8 Rigging: The front cinch position is 7/8 of the distance from the cantle to the pommel. This puts the front cinch a little farther back than a full rigged saddle.

3/4 Rigging: The front cinch position is 3/4 of the distance from the cantle to the pommel. This puts the front cinch a little farther back than a 7/8 rigged saddle.

Center Fire Rigging: The front cinch position is (approximately) centered between the cantle and the pommel.

More Saddle Rigging Terms

Single Rigged: This means there is a front cinch, but not a back cinch (sometimes called a "flank cinch"). The term "single rigged," by itself, does not let you know the position of the front cinch (full, 7/8, etc.).

Double Rigged: This means there is a front cinch and a back cinch. The term "double rigged," by itself, does not let you know the position of the front cinch (full, 7/8, etc.).

Full Double Rigged: This means there is a front cinch and a back cinch, and that the front cinch is in the "full" rigged position (the full distance from the cantle to the pommel).
