Pair 1 1/2" Rear Loop Style Billets
These are the same exact Rear Billets that that go out on my Kids saddles, will the loop style attatchment. They are built from Hermann Oak saddle skirting and lined with good oiled latigo leather. These are made to be strong and stretch resistent. These are loop type billets and are 1 1/2" width and horse size. The holes on the billets are figure 8 stitched and the back cinch is double sewn. This extra sewing and latigo lining makes them stronger, stretch resistant, and the lining resists sweat from the horses belly. Loop billets refers to the way they attatch to the saddle. They have a built in loop that they use to attatch to the saddle, instead of the simple lace on method. The billet goes thru the riggin dee or slot, then thu the heavy loop sewn into the billets and is pulled down tight. This way you have the full thickness of the skirting and lining leather that is taking the pull. This way also allows you to remove your billets for cleaning if wanted and is much stronger than the lace on billets. The lace on type usually attatch by lacing thru three holes with latigo lace. You should be able to see from the pictures how my rear Billets attatch, or look at one of my saddles pictures on the web site. These 1 1/2" width Billets are what I use on my kids saddles but are built just like the ones on my full size saddles.They are built the same way as the 1 3/4" wide billets, just as tough but narrower in width and the same length. They are full length to fit a horse's belly. These would work fine on a full sized saddle if it came with narrower billets to start with. Remember to measure the buckles on your Back Cinch before you order. 1 3/4" Billets won't fit into 1 1/2" roller buckles, get the same size as your buckles are..
