The tree is sort of the backbone of the saddle. It is on him that all other elements are based.
The “knob” is located on the front of the saddle, just above the horse’s withers.
The “cantle” is at the back of the “seat” where the rider sits. The cantle can be square or rounded. The seat meanwhile, is more or less trough depending on model.
“Neighborhoods” are the big pieces, usually of leather, which lie on either side of the saddle, and on which the rider’s legs are positioned.
The “stirrup bars” are metal parts located between the seat and neighborhoods and allow to hang the stirrups, “which they hold the” stirrups “. It is in these that the rider places his feet.
The “girth” set between “neighborhoods” and “wrong neighborhoods” of the saddle used to attach the “strap” that goes under the horse’s belly to prevent the saddle does not look back.
