Western Saddles: Beyond The Working Cowboy

Today, most modern Western saddles for sale have two distinctive innovations brought about by the needs of the working cowboy: The saddle horn and the double rigging. These two features remain on most Western saddles because they are useful for other things beyond the cowboy’s needs. They are a distinct part of what makes a saddle a Western saddle.

  • The saddle horn. Saddle horns, perhaps best known as the place a cowboy dallies or ties their rope, are useful for other things, too. They’re handy when mounting or dismounting, and they’re a great place to hang items you want to keep handy. They can also be held to help keep a rider’s body position exactly where they want it (such as when turning a barrel in barrel racing, sliding off a horse while steer wrestling, riding a cutting horse, or riding up and down steep slopes when trail riding).
  • Double riggings. A “double rigged” saddle means it has a front cinch and a back cinch. (Most modern Western saddles come with a place for a back cinch even though some riders don’t use it.) Double riggings provide extra stability to keep a saddle where it should be when it’s used for the same examples we just shared (above), and for other reasons as well.
