Hey everyone... this is my first post on a forum. I know that if I don't do it correctly I will hear about it. I want to know the proper method of hand stitching billets to an English style saddle. I have been told that backstitching the billets to the saddle is completed a certain way. This is stitching the billet to nylon webbing under the saddle flap. I need a visual diagram to understand this better. Maybe I am making more out of this than I should, because I have been ending my hand stitching by back stitching all along. Is it as simple as that? Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. Random

I see that I have left out some information...

My interests are tack repairing of English tack. Mostly Hunter/Jumper tack. I hand stitch everything I do.
