A story from James Camp, a Cattle Station in North Australia:
       Hi Len, I bought a CorrecTOR pad from you 2 yrs ago. I have meant to send you feedback but wanted to give it a thorough trial first!
  I was brought up riding English, where 1 saddle was fitted to 1 horse. I was a riding instructor, so saw a lot of variations on badly fitting saddles come through the gate. After I completed my degree in Equine Science, I went backpacking for a year and ended up working on a north Australian Cattle station mustering on horseback. Out here, it's not unheard of to be sitting on your horse from dark till dark and my plant of horses ranged from a 14H Quarter to a 16.2H TB type. I had one saddle that was expected to fit on this range of horses for these extreme lengths of time and I was expecting them to work well for me. No wonder the Stations get these "Rogue" horses.
    I ended up marring into the station, so I've been here for 6yrs now. In that time I've spent a fortune on different pads and, for that matter saddles. It was a constant headache swapping one pad to another, trying to keep my horses as happy as possible - avoiding pressure sores, heat rashes, and girth galls when working hard in humid conditions. 
   I bought a CorrecTOR at the start of the mustering season & gave it what could be called a thorough trial. It is now the ONLY PAD I've used for 2 full seasons mustering, including competing in campdrafting,rodeo games, barrel racing and bush racing. This thing gets a work out - as I mentioned we do long days in harsh conditions and my one saddle goes on all shapes and sizes of horses. 
   What made me finally write to you and think you is three experiences this year; 
   Firstly, I brought my farorite mare back into work after foaling.She has always been girthy and has a bit of a dodgy back with a very long sloping scapula & withers. Since coming back after her year off, past damages have healed and she has been a rock when I tack up with your pad now.
  Secondly, I recently moved into town and started riding my sister-in-law's ex racehorse. I jumped on in her English tack and admittedly poorly fitting saddle & found all things associated with ageing T/Breds - a bit stiff to strart off with, slightly crooked, etc.etc.. The next time I threw on my own tack. The difference was immediate. As soon as he moved off he was swinging thru the back, his tail was loose and he was much less crooked. Within two rides he stopped throwing his head every time I made a downward transition. This was such a huge difference I asked  a friend to throw the CorrecTOR pad on his horse, just for interest's sake.....
     He said the difference was incredible. His moody mare was again a different horse. I believe he is buying a CorrecTOR off you now as we speak.
    I don't generally bother writing feedback like this and this is not false praise. I feel I've given the CorrecTOR a pretty thorough testing. I've tried and tested endless gizmos, gadgets and gimmicks in my time, but the CorrecTOR has really Proved itself. 
   Hope all is well,   Many thanks, Barb at: JAMES CAMP, North Australia..

The NEW UPGRADE "The ProTecTOR" has been 90% of my orders. It the same price it has been selling at for 2 years. By building the Corrector into the Envelope pad there is; Less bulk, a lighter and easier Pad to Clean. It is softer for your horse and absorbs no moisture above the sweat free layer under the Protective Shields.. It's been tested and comes out a winner.. Enjoy, Len ..... PS> this is why the great CorrecTOR pad now has special pricing until my materials inventory is reduced to a normal level.  The Corrector's weight distributing system is the same as the Protector's. The Protective shields are the same. Grab one for an extra Pad at this price while you can.

This ProTecTOR, with outer felt layer not sewn & folded down, shows what's visible from the top opening as you place Balance Sims over the Patented Protective Shields. You can see some Shims at the top on the other side of the pad shown here.
   The Envelope Pads are the same on the outside as are the balance shims and the pocket they are used in.  The white felt CorrecTOR is gone and the Protective Shields are placed into the ProtecTOR Pad sewn under the nylon netting you see above. Special collapsible column,  open padding a 1/4" thick is under the shields.

Our Perfect WADE rises above all others.My OLD ORTHO-FLEX type seat construction has 3/8in. Neoprene padding.  The Fork is my exclusive but more important,the bars are the same. I developed them in 1998 for short round backs,thick low withers,a twist to get a hold on round backs & not drop on thin withered horses. The thin bars have a narrow waist for rider & wide gullet for the horse. The bars are 10 times more important than fork or cantle in every saddle. The Perfect WADE has a 7.5in. wide gullet and this 16in.saddle is only 25" long, 4" of that being quite flexible at the ends.Weight is 21# Border tooled,25# full carve. Comes in 15,16,17 seat sizes. Len Brown

The 3 point rigging slots, you see below the BAREBACK CUT-OUT IN THE SKIRT, allow you to adjust where the saddle rides on your horse. The latigo is attached in the front slot, insert the last wrap of your latigo in the front slot to hold your saddle back. Put it in the rear slot to pull it forward. Use all 3 on the round back & it's in the super-glue mode. It's close contact, no big steel bars or plates & Dees. It's 2 layers of Light Skirting with Rawhide inbetween them. Close and no bumps with a nylon latigo or lighter leather. Len

PocketPadFrontQt.FontWEBB.3.jpg
IT IS 25

The POCKET Barrel Saddle is short, Light, secure and comfortable. It does not pop up in the rear when cinching. The DROPPED SKIRT'S  rigging slots are reinforced with rawhide + the open yoke plate around the outer edge of the skirt. It slips over the top of the bar ends front & rear. This leaves a strong flexible dropped skirt with: NO BUMPS, LUMPS, Metal PLATES or STIFF SPOTS, YOU JUST FEEL YOUR HORSE & THAT'S ALL !
 The owner of this very saddle told her dad: "I had to look down while riding occasionally, to see if I was in a saddle! It felt like I was bareback." The narrow waist and close contact bars under the rider let you feel your horse from your upper thighs down. The deeply notched fork has a groove for the thighs when you're forward. This saddle feels like nothing you've ever ridden. The 16.5" seat size shown only weighed 20#s with stirrups. Step up to make you and your horse the best with "The POCKET". Regards, Len Brown

CENTER TO REAR PULLS SADDLE FORWARD! ALL 3 HOLDS FAST!

The NearTight Cinch is a touch of what I've done with girths for 22 years. A girth that really works without biting into the horse on the front edge. It's thinner than my old OrthoFlex Softsides girth. It has more body and retains it's shape ( that of a horse) much better than the Softsides ever did. Some of the many improvements are as follows:  
   The NearTight has buckles that rotate to follow the angle of your latigo straps. Seatbelt webbing runs from one end of the cinch to the other holding the buckles to keep you on your horse. The Hermann Oak Gator Saddleskirting leather is lined with a 1/4" of soft Shoe Sole Crepe. Tough but smooth, it is sewn with heavy nylon thread to the skirting leather and has smooth hand cut and finished edges. The horse is protected from the pressure of buckles and bumps of straps over them. Your saddle feels GLUED to your horse with the NearTight Cinch.  It is easy to wipe clean and should last as long as your saddle.  It is available for English saddles as well. Since it doesn't bite on the front edge, like other flat strap girths,  your horse can bend, turn, & stop without pain.  

NearTight Cinch, better than string, or neoprene.
NearTightAntiquedOnDJWEB.01.jpg
It's already the horse's shape & doesn't bite the skin.

All Saddles by Len Brown come with a matching ProTecTOR pad, Perfect Rider Stirrups, and the Near~Tight Cinch, we make stirrups to fit you and the  Cinch to fit your horse.

A single unit: TheProTecTOR Pad is softer & closer
DIS-ASSEMBLED TO VIEW THE INNER WORKING COMPONENTS OF THE PATENTED CORRECTOR SHIELDS.
This PROTECTOR HAS BEEN DIS-ASSEMBLED TO LET YOU VIEW THE INNER WORKS.

TheProTecTOR is the NEWEST & ONLY UPGRADE I've ever done to the already GREAT CorrecTOR. Closer, Softer,& Lighter, it has the Protective Sheilds built into the Envelope pad.   The BALANCE SHIMS ARE USED IN THE SAME POCKET as your old style CorrecTOR. The White Felt of the CorrecTOR is eliminated. A tough Nylon NETTING over the SHIELDS is Sewn to hold them in place. There is a 1/4" layer of hollow see thru padding under the Protective Shields. It absorbs no moisture and lets air & heat pass easily. Extremely light & strong , it doesn't lose its soft squish over time.. It was formerly in my No-Sweat pads.  The ProTecTOR is preferred over the CorrecTOR by all the TOP ROPERS that have tried it.  A full time working cowboy in British Columbia has 4 Correctors, got 1 ProTecTOR and is ordering 2 more in January. 
    It is also IDEAL for English Riders. I've been sending them out for most of 2012 with great response.  It is a $30 upgrade offered to any regular Corrector Value package.  Enjoy, Len  

THE SUPREME COMOFORT REINER ProTecTOR pad
S/C REINER ProTecTOR Pad> all new: ONE Unit, softer, lighter, thinner!
The ProTecTOR is the newest version of the Corrector. Closer, lighter, softer. All one unit !

        The Std. Western CorrecTOR with 4 molded to a horse shape shields.    Making the protective SHIELDS of the CorrecTOR is the most difficult task. The 4 protective shields have 112 linear inches of slots. Some are cut parallel 
others Tapered.   Normal die  press cutting is not feasible because of the thin slots and tough plastic polymer the Shields are made from.  
   
     Then each of the 4 individual shields are molded, by hand, to the general horse shape they're designed to sit on.   The slots are not just for Ventilation, but to let the protective shields move better with the horse.  When the horse's shoulders bend the front shields upward, the shields act as a flexible lever to hold the saddle off the shoulders.  That's how they keep your saddle positioned and eliminate interference with the shoulder and body movement.   The tree bars hold the back 2/3rds  of the front shields down to the horse & in front of the saddle.
     
     The CorrecTOR & Saddle are working with AND against each other.   OPPOSING FORCES, a basic of how one keeps the other positioned -- all initiated by the ULTIMATE FORCE TO BE OPPOSED=PRESSURE---from the front of the bars.  Einstein elaborated on the theory of "Opposing Forces" ... it's used throughout your own body, as well as that of the horse to maintain stability during movement and integrity of the muscular-skeletal system!
    There are  42 holes and 38 slots in a Western CorrecTOR and 2 extra for English.
The 112"of air-filled slots in all four shields (not completely seen) are ventilated by the 38 holes in the CorrecTOR's top layer.   There is a 1/4" layer of soft polyester felt on the bottom of the CorrecTOR and a thin 1/10" thick nylon-reinforced felt top layer. 
    THERE IS LITTLE OR NO BREATHING IN ANY PAD, ONLY HEAT TRANSFER CAPABILTIES.  That's why the felt body of the CorrecTOR has an Elliptical cut 1 & 1/2" WIDE down the top center. It's also cutback in front & forward in rear.  It is cooler for the horse, is cut to move with him, and why it doesn't work to put a one-piece pad underneath it.   I hope this explains "how it works" to you!   LEN

ENGLISH CORRECTOR UNDER A 17 in. ENGLISH TREE
ENGLISH CORRECTOR UNDER A 17" ENGLISH TREE.
THE ENGLISH CORRECTOR IS A SMALLER VERSION OF THE WESTERN.

The New LOW~DOWN ROPER below is a 14.5" saddle with a new horn made specifically for it. You'll soon see a matching ProTecTOR Roper pad to go with it.
It is being shaped to the saddle and decorated like no pad you've ever seen. Rickey Green has tested the ProTecTOR version of the CorrecTOR and speaks highly of it. The LOW DOWN TREE is unique in that it's wide but doesn't drop down and ride on withers. It gets a good hold on the round backed horse and doesn't pinch or pop up in the rear. FEW SHIMS ARE NEEDED with the BLACK MESA Trees we make. You can see these same bars & a little taller Roper TM fork on a mule if you go to the MULE Riders page. It's shown on my GREY on the TEAM ROPERS page as well. The full carving on this saddle is a work of art. Conchos are a modest Steers head, Stirrups are the PERFECT RIDER CAM STIRRUPS that put you forward with your TOES DOWN & LEGS BACK. THEY THEN KEEP YOU THERE, against the swells ready to throw that loop !  The NearTight Cinch comes with the LOW~DOWN ROPER as well as the New ProTecTOR Pad mentioned Above.  Call me for availability. I've got 2 in stock right now. One I'm keeping for a DEMO. Oh, the seat is real Ostrich. Gullet is 7 & 3/4's inches wide. The bars have more twist than any tree you can buy. That's just a part of what makes the LOW~DOWN ROPER> OUT-PERFORM any roping saddle you can buy. Regards,  Len Brown   



  MORE than JUST a SADDLE PAD--a Saddle Fitting System that:

  • EVENLY distributes EXCESS saddle PRESSURES as your horse MOVES.
  • WORKS with Wide or Narrow Saddles & Any Horse,
  • ( balance shims are often required to achieve the above ) They work like a wedge under the rocking chair as they ride between the Protective Shields and your tree bars. Front & or rear they adjust the angle of your saddle and stabilize it from rolling!
  • The Plastic Shields also Protect shoulders in the downhill while holding the saddle from sliding forward!
  • Mules can be ridden with just about any saddle using  the front and rear shims with the Corrector and  an Envelope pad.  
  • ENGLISH & WESTERN  Versions for ALL Saddles.
  • BETTER than my former ORTHO-FLEX and other cheap DELRIN PANEL SYSTEMS;  Maintains Correct Saddle Position with the leverage designed into the front Shields and requires no yearly tune-up (like Flex Panel saddles) nor BOLTS PROTRUDING INTO STIFF PADDING TO SCAR YOUR ANIMAL! 
  • Just one CorrecTOR goes from horse to horse, saddle to saddle-Not Custom Fitted! It's literally self adjusting so it positions the same saddle individually for each horse you put it on.
  • NO Delrin Flex Panels, NO Bounce, NO Loin Rubbing!  The NEMESIS of flex panel systems!  Go to the Navigation bar, above left, to see converted flex-panel saddles and learn what's involved. Also Steele Plantation saddles do well with the stuffed Panels to straighten the banana bar design.    
  • Replaces Delrin Panels on Ortho-Flex and all other OrthoFlex Clones  (knock-offs) , very successfully!  (and they are all knock-offs of the systems I patented) None of the mountings or panels are new. Most have "simple logic" mistakes that I made 20 years ago with the early Ortho-Flexes..  
  • CLOSE CONTACT! The Corrector requires little or NO padding above it.
  • Long Lasting and Costs little more than a Quality Saddle Pad.
  • Corrects the Design Deficiencies INHERENT in ALL Saddles, even Treeless saddles are improved,  for the horse & rider, with the Corrector's Treeless Shim & E Pad Combo!
  • Described as a Parallel Scapula (in-front) by Dr. Ezra Edgerton NC. , after testing on a number of different animals.

 The HORSE SHAPED.. Protective shields stuck to my horse's back > are to show you the inner workings of  this Patented system: unlike anything used before!

    The first question is always "Should I use another Pad
with the CorrecTOR?" Adding pads doesn't work because they're not cut like the Envelope pad and Corrector. They don't allow the Corrector to move with the horse and can pinch at the withers. That's the role of the balance shims, to lift as needed but not pinch at the withers.  The stretchy 1/4" thick Show blankets on top of a Pro E pad or SOCK work fine with the Corrector.  The "E" pads aren't too thick, give close contact, wash well at a car-wash, vacuum to clean regularly, have body (not flimsy) and are only 1/2" thick on average. The Supreme Comfort Roper and all Navajos are 3/4" thick. 
   You add shims used and Corrector's 1/4" to these figures.  
  The top centerline cut is cool and moves with the horse, basically making regular contoured saddlepads  obsolete!
. 
The Envelope is made to be used Exclusively with the CorrecTOR!
 Regular saddlepads don't have the patent protected> elliptical cut at the top and can't move with the horse. They bind up with downward pressure at either the withers or mid-back and don't let the Corrector do it's job near as well as when using an Envelope pad. Your saddle isn't positioned as well nor does the horse work as well. This is what I've had customers tell me that did the testing on the trail with 1/2" pads over or under a Pro E pad. It was un-solicited info they wanted to tell me.  Thanks, Len

THE VISALIA BELL, A CLASSIC NOW WITH THE FIXED CAM
PERFECT RIDER STIRRUPS ARE FOR MORE CONFIDENCE.
VISALIA IS BUILT WITH SHOE CREPE FOOT PAD, IT MAKES YOU A BETTER RIDER

How a Perfect Rider CAM Stirrup works;   The 2.5" long cam at the top of the stirrup is tilted forward and fixed so it can't rotate in the stirrup. Imagine that the straps are held apart a couple of inches by the Cam. Because the stirrup is tilted forward as you put a little pressure in the stirrup, your heels go down. A sudden stop & the Stirrup straps pulls the cams inline, thus  kicking the angle of the stirrup out. At the same time your foot and leg follows. You now have perfect reaction time that helps keep you in the saddle. It's automatically controlled by pressure from your foot & you. The confidence you gain when riding is very noticeable. It's hard to come out of the saddle when cams are tilted forward.
    Competition ROPERS use the CAMS tilted REARWARD! When they stand to throw a Loop, their toes go down & legs go back, putting them up against the swells of the fork. That is exactly where they want to be!  Until they sit back down, they can't get their feet forward and accidently fall back. The Perfect cams give them that forward position to throw the Loop. The U.S. patent examiner could understand the results of this cam and approved a powerful Utility patent before I had the first set of stirrups made. It's all mechanical. Folks ask me if the CAM keeps their foot from being caught after falling off. I tell them no, the CAM keeps you in the saddle. I'm not saying you can't fall off. I'm saying you have a world better odds of not falling off. Regards, Len

The Flex panels have been knocked off and similar trees with all the pattern work Len did on saddles, even their names. This is by former dealers and 1 or 2 employees. Most are quite poor in function and quality. You can read more about that below.  Len's quest for perfection was incessant and he was never satisfied enough to leave the Flex panel system alone. They just never performed up to his demands and had too many negatives! The Corrector has performed beyond his standards and is the same now as when it was designed and tested in 2003.
   Other products Len introduced into the horse world:  Neoprene Girths, Contoured Pads, Safety cam stirrups, Dropped yoke rigging plate, In-flap or Mono-Flap billets, LoadLeveler Pad with shim pockets,Softsides Neo/Leather girths & tack, all originated with Len Brown. Welcome to 26 pages of education and product that actually solves your problems.

From: Colin Dangaard.

Dear Len,

Congratulations on coming up with a pad that has great merit.   I rode heavily with the pad on very rough country over two days, on two different horses. On purpose I chose a saddle that did not fit well on either horse. After four hours on each horse, neither indicated discomfort. I highly recommend this pad on saddles with marginal fit.

Ft. Balance Shims, don't pinch horse's withers.

The New cut of the front & rear Balance shims for the Corrector.

The Corrector, a little weight 
distributing device that fixes 95% of saddling problems & 
saves you many $1,000's in new saddles that don't always work.  

    
      If you have a sore horse from saddle soring etc., 
you've come to the right place.   Len Brown, the pioneer of this field, has been bringing awareness of SADDLE FITTING problems to horseback riders world-wide since 1983.
     Len did this through clinics, booklets, videos and inventing the Ortho-Flex Panel systems that attached to a saddle. He spent millions and fought the industry. IT CHANGED the WORLD OF THE HORSE. Not being satisfied with the Ortho-Flex panels Len shut the Company down in spring of 2001. By 2003 Len designed a new device that is improving the world of the horse again! The Corrector was made to eliminate having to buy a saddle to fix your horse's problems. It is made to work with any saddle and any horse or mule! Find new ways to solve your horse's saddlefit problems while enjoying the site --- 28 Pages in all and growing.  

   It's hard to realize that little or no padding is needed---and the CorrecTOR works best with less.
   That's why the Envelope Pads are beneficial as they are designed to move with your horse like the CorrecTOR.  Remember, "It doesn't work if you don't use it!"   Getting an Envelope Pad makes the CorrecTOR easier to use EVERY TIME!....Len

These "impact resistant" polymer Shields are NEVER USED DIRECTLY ON THE HORSE AS SHOWN, OR SEPERATE OF THE CORRECTOR! They are laminated in between 2 layers of felt to make a DEVICE  called "THE CORRECTOR" .  It is then inserted into a pocket in an Envelope pad. The Combination is all you need under your saddle along with some balance shims used to take the "Rock" out of your tree bars & balance your saddle on the horse.

HOW TO FIND THE BACK OF THE SCAPULA ON ANY HORSE.
THE  CORRECTOR SHOULD BE POSITIONED LIKE THIS!
THE SOCK & CORRECTOR SHOULD BE POSITIONED HERE!

                                             The "sock" covering a std western CorrecTOR is pictured above on my 15H Foxtrotter.  Want to know where the scapula is on a horse?   Follow the line from the elbow up, go 1 to 2 inches back depending on horse's size and the scapulas are in the same relationship to the elbows on all horses.
     [If saddlemakers knew this they could make riggings to put the saddle in the right place on all horses.  Instead they're made to keep going up over the shoulder to better balance the rider because they are too wide.] Sorry just a pet peeve of mine, using front balance shims with the corrector will hold them back anyway.
     
Yes,  this is where the CorrecTOR should ride, over the shoulder about 2 inches, saddle tree just back of the  shoulder.
    Caution:   if your horse's back is short and you ride a long saddle, it's hard to put it behind the shoulders.    REMEMBER: SADDLING IS ALWAYS EASIER WITH THE SHORTEST SADDLE YOU CAN USE COMFORTABLY.  Some saddlemakers are making shorter saddles; look for them or just buy old ones.  Saddlemakers were a lot smarter back then.  

TOO WIDE OF TREE > BARS ARE FLATTENED, NOT SPREAD!
WIDE TREE ANGLES PINCH MORE THAN ANY OTHER.
WIDE TREE ANGLES PINCH MORE THAN ANY OTHER.

15H avg. backed horse with too much CURVE IN BARS!
MOLD of 15H agv. back & TREE WITH TOO MUCH CURVE !
Horse's back is up an inch at the walk. This tree is already a Rocking Chair !

THE MOST COMMON PROBLEM SEEN IN SADDLES TODAY! The mold shown here is a 15 H horse I owned with a good back. The Tree is too curved in the bars and flat in the angle at front!  That Angle  will do nothing but pinch at the top of the bars. Many Full Quarter Horse bars have this very same problem!!
   I've designed the front balance shims so the more you add, the more contact you gain at the foot of the bars in front. At the same time, you remove pressure at the
top area of the bars where the "pinch" takes place!
 It's the cut-away of the shims that make this happen.
  That means less pinch at the top of the="wide tree bars". Tree & saddlemakers seldom widen a tree, they just flatten the angle as in this picture.

The most commom problem of a rocking Tree, solved

A Girth that stops the pinch & STABILIZES  your saddle !
Girth that doesn't PINCH & has HOLDING POWER: NearTight English is it !

Life is about solving problems. The Cinch is a problem we overlook because we don't palpate our horses at the  front edge of the Cinch. You don't have to have open sores or a swollen lump to have behavior and performance Problems from your animals sensitive barrel. Performance horses and Mules have problems here continually. When the saddle rolls, the Cinch Pinches & Bites. Check your animal today.  

Do you have trouble with your saddle rolling when ROPING a big STEER? A customer with a broken back and a low withered Q.Horse can now get on without his saddle being over tightened. He just uses the Never*Tight Cinch.

IT HOLDS YOUR SADDLE WITHOUT SQUEEZING YOUR HORSE
LET MY CINCH HOLD YOUR SADDLE NOT YOUR HORSE'S RIB
THIS CINCH IS REVOLUTIONARY, IT HOLDS A SADDLE LIKE GLUE WHEN LOOSE!

The NEVER~TIGHT Cinch is confronting a problem most horsemen just give up on; STOPPING SADDLE ROLLING AND CINCH SORING ON THE ROUND BACKED PERFORMANCE HORSE.
   It gets ahold of the animal at the sternum and under the buckles at the top. Like a little saddle under the  barrel it is stable and not slipping side to side. 
  The NEAR~TIGHT cinch is half the cost of the Never~Tight and holds the saddle stable without PINCHING  for most horse and riding situations. It is more flexible and still made on a curve. Without the plastic core of the Never~Tight, it works on any animal. It is not as aggressive with the holding power but is all most saddling situations need. 
        When riders have a problem with their horse's performance or attitude they just blame it on the SADDLE or the PAD. BARREL RACERS, CUTTERS, Dressage riders, Jumpers, ROPERS, MULE riders: they often have soreness at the front edge of their animal's girths. The PROBLEM: how to hold that saddle on while it is on a round  backed horse or mule. The  CorrecTOR with the Shims to take the Rock  & Roll out of the tree helps. ...(It doesn't do it all on the low withered very round animal.)... Cinching too tight causes the sorness at the front edge of  the girth. Not tight enough causes the same problem quite often because of the rubbing side to side. The area affected is from the Elbow Up to the Buckle at the top of the Cinch. Just take the tips of your  fingers and palpate your horse along the front edge of the  cinch. If your animal shows discomfort by flinching you'll know what is foremost on his mind when being asked to turn. Does your Cutting horse refuse to do a TurnBack in one direction? A heading  horse will dodge off, the healer will do the same or not face the steer. The  Barrel horse will drop in a turn most often to the right. 
  I've changed girths  on horses like this and it fixed their problem immediatly. For your animals comfort and performance and for your convenience  & safety get a EITHER a NEAR~THIGHT or a NEVER~TIGHT Cinch.  Thanks, Len  PS> I've make Near~Tight in English also.

8 in. AT STERNUM, NOT TIGHT ON FLAT OF THE RIBS
LET YOUR HORSE DO HIS BEST LESS EXCESSIVE PRESSURE
LET YOUR HORSE DO HIS BEST WITHOUT EXCESS PRESSURE !

This Girth has a core of Aircraft Plastic molded to a shape it took me 2 years to perfect. The inside lining is Soft Shoe Sole  Crepe. The outer layer is Hermann Oak Drum dyed Skirting. Hardware is Stainless Steel. Using a latigo on both sides  is preferred because this Cinch doesn't slide around your animals  barrel. Just tighten enough to line the buckles up with the latigo strap. They rotate easily in their mounting so as not to pull your saddle or cinch out of position. It has the  flared shape of the animals  barrel. It's wider and rounder than your animal at the flat of the Ribs. You  pull the buckles to the animal as you cinch up. Contact that stabilizes is all that's necessary their. The Pressure is at the sternum where then animal can deal with it. The Never*Tight  Cinch is a big advancement that wouldn't have happened if  I hadn't keep at the Problem I knew  existed. Regards,  Len Brown

The NEAR~TIGHT Cinch below is made to work with any Horse or Mule. The NEVER~TIGHT Cinch is for the really round backed animal where saddle rolling is a major problem. Competition riders like Ropers and Barrel Racers often need the NEVER~TIGHT Cinch. The less severe girthing situations are covered by the NEAR~TIGHT Cinch. It works for the Roper & Barrel Racer and the Trailriders or Endurance. English saddles really need the NEAR~TIGHT Girth because it has no elastic on the buckles. The NEAR~TIGHT IS HALF THE PRICE OF THE NEVER~TIGHT!  That way it doesn't squeeze you so much either.  Len

This Cinch is built on a Curve, it holds well.
This Cinch doesn't pinch like most Cinches.
because it's not a flat strap it doens't pinch at the front edge like most cinches!

Black Mesa Saddletree was bought by myself and my son Derek. Derek is running the tree operation. He is offering the traditional Trees that BLACK MESA has made for years but with new & improved bars and angles. We are also building trees NEW to the horseworld. They are based from SADDLETREE patterns that I have made over the LAST 26 years. A continual improvement process has already started to make BLACK MESA TREES the best for the horse and the most comfortable for the rider. COMBINED WITH "The CorrecTOR", you can have the best! A saddle is only as good as it's tree! The BARS on this "Groove" Barrel tree put's you closer to the horse than a TREELESS SADDLE. They are the same bars we use in the Perfect Wade and Futurity Cutter.

THE BACK LIFTS AS YOU RIDE, TREES JUST ROCK & ROLL

         I closed the doors of Ortho-Flex Saddle Co. Inc. in 2001 because I could see no future in the DELRIN PANEL SYSTEM. I was in the midst of moving the company there. I could have kept it and worked out an operating plan but it wasn't worth it. I offered to help move the rest of the company to Warren & spent 6 weeks doing so.
       They never had anyone there for me to train in saddlery or how the system is attached or works. 
       They just started over with a building full of patterns & no trained employees.   I am not associated with the new Company in Arkansas. The 3 different panel systems created a revolution in saddlery, but were difficult to use and left the rider feeling "PERCHED" above their horse! For the HORSE it was the best system available for many years.  I also created the First:  Dropped Yoke Rigging,/ Neoprene Girths,/ Contoured Pads with Shims, all to help adapt the Delrin Panel  system!  The Customer Service alone was the largest single expense of OrthoFlex when I owned it.   Overwhelming!  
         There had to be Something BETTER, EASIER to use, that would CORRECT <PROBLEMS> INHERENT in all saddles, and be AFFORDABLE!
        Creating the CorrecTOR took me 2 years alone with my horses and a collection of the worst old saddles you could imagine.   I'm more excited about what I've developed (the CorrecTOR) than anything I've done since Lisa and I rode 3000 miles through the West on horseback in 1982.  When you call or email you'll be talking to me (or CJ my girlfriend).   I work with you direct---no more Oversized Company with inexperienced folks on the phone.  Call me anytime at ( 816) 625-0333----I enjoy what I do!
 It feels good to be "back in the saddle" with a new Product that works as well as the Corrector!    Thanks, Len Brown
