Rigging Positions Vary Among Saddle Makers

Saddle rigging positions, as described above, vary between saddle makers. In other words, one saddle maker's "full" position (or any of the other positions) might not be in the exact same place as another saddle maker's.

More 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).
