Stay safe and secure in the tack with the Berlin Custom Hermann Oak Leather Nightlatch Grab Strap. Designed to help you stay on a high spirited or young horse, the grab strap easily buckles through the gullet hole and around the swell and can be placed on either side of the western saddle for right or left-handed use.
It is technically a “night latch”. These got their name from cowboys tending to their herds at night. They would slide their thought, much like a bill rider, in case he fell asleep. They also have the benefit of if one bucks you can not only grab onto it, but also pull yourself back down easily.
