Category: Western Saddle Fittings/Pads

Purchase: I bought a pair of converters online at Pelham Saddlery for $29.90 with tax and shipping. I bought these in order to transition my cinchy thoroughbred back to the tried and tested elasticity and stability of english girths after switching his discipline to casual and competitive trail riding. I liked the idea of being able to quickly tighten or loosen my girth from the saddle without having to untie and retie the latigo. This product has turned that chore into a one-handed, two second task. My horse is much happier, and my saddle feels secure and stable.

Likes: These attractive and sturdy converters attached easily to the dees on my western saddle and make tightening the girth from the saddle an absolute breeze. Good for bloaty horses.

Dislikes: Upon arrival - stiff and hard to work, definitely oil these before you attach them to your saddle. The billets were a tight fit for the standard english girth buckles, but have worn to fit over time. Not a deal breaker.

Quality: Each converter is made out of a solid, thick, and sturdy piece of smooth leather. There is no stitching, no buckle, and no hassle. They will need to be treated regularly, just like any other leather tack. A high quality, well thought out product, which is what I have come to expect from Cashel.

Summary: Great for the working ranch or trail horse, casual riding or any time where your horse's comfort takes precedence over the expected standard gear.
