Tip of the day: Clips onto saddle Ds.

This came from a saddler, who pointed out that I was doing it wrong!IMG_4526
When using clips to attach a breast-girth to the saddle Ds, have the clip facing upwards so the strongest part of the clip (the back of the curve, not the moveable part which opens) is taking the strain. (I did them the other way round because I thought it was safer, since nothing else could get hooked on them inadvertently that way, but actually there’s so little space there anyway, I agree that the saddler is right.)

Just a little thing, but important, just in case one ever might snap under the strain.
