  1. Ive only made a couple saddles so far so take this with a grain of salt.

    i did a basket stamped cantle back with a single border running across the top.

    I molded it to the cantle marked and trimmed for my cantle binding. After trimming i reinstalled and then marked where the binding is going to be.  After that i took it back off.  It still had enough moisture so i didnt have to recase.  I marked i think 3/8ths in for my border.  Tooled my border along the arc and then basket stamped all the way out to the end of the bottom.  The jockeys covered the bottom.  I think next time ill rough fit my jockeys and then make the border on the bottom as well.

    I think the book talks about two different widths for the strap.  I prefer the narrower version and use another piece shown at the top of the photo to distribute the pressure. I rarely use the wider strap.
