 I am looking for any information on a model 1917 McClellan mule riding saddle.  What I need is a schematic on how the straps attach. The saddle is in Randy Steffens book Military saddles. the last drawing. If someone has restored or owns one of these, please let me know.

JV I have not personally worked on one of these, however; typically the front strap is screwed/tacked over the front of the fork, and the rear is over the back of the tree behind the cantle, they then extend down to the "ring" where they are looped over and stitched.  Not too sure what you are looking for here, they are just as they appear in most pics.
