Watch these tips to help keep you safe in the saddle.  Before mounting, conduct a thorough walk-around tack check every time you ride. Check these points:

✔️ saddle is rigged the same on both sides
✔️ bridle is fitting correctly
✔️ check all Chicago screws for tightness
✔️ check everywhere metal meets leather
