Bucking rolls are for the slick fork or A-fork saddle and are sized in medium or large. They are made of various leathers and firmness and may be wool or foam stuffed. Bucking rolls are attached under the slotted concho or a washer and screw on the side of the saddle. In our design, there is a buckle in the center to tighten.
A Cowboy Night Latch
A Night Latch is a safety strap attached to a saddle to help the rider hold on and stay on a bucking or fast turning horse. This contraption was used as part of old-time traditional cowboy bronc gear and can still come in handy. Today it is still called the night latch or “holy crap” handle, or comes by other names! The James Built Saddlery version buckles around the swell and can be placed either side of the horn for whichever hand you are most likely to use in those highly bouncy situations!
