I played with it quite a bit up and down, I just don't want it to slide out when I'm climbing hills....I ride in quite a bit of brush sometimes, so the more I can get it up close to the horse and out of the way the better, specifically the muzzle end.


well thought out, makes sense to me .... hope it works well for you

It looks good. Very good. How does the horse do with it?

No issues. It packs quite well.

Hey RR could ya help a rookie out with a couple close ups of how and where you attach the scabbord to the saddle? It's a bit uncomfortable slung over the shoulder goin thru the trees. Always thought about a scabbord just never used one. Elk season ain't till October so no rush! :)

This is the wrong side but it's the same way on the off side since I moved it. I had extra D rings put on each side near the cantle when I had my saddle made. The front strap is run through my breast collar D. You can fasten right to the rigging as well. Whatever hangs best. Has to fit horse well and you too.

Main thing is everything snug to the horse so you dont catch a tree branch. And don't lose your rifle.
