Ask a question about this product

What is a Night latch-Oh damn strap:  A night latch is a safety strap attached to a saddle to help you stay on an out of control horse.  This contraption was used as part of the traditional cowboy bronc gear and can still come in handy.

You are using the strap to form a loop to grab like a suitcase handle (or bareback rigging.)

Maybe you are wondering why use a night latch, when the saddle horn is so handy.  With a night latch, you can pull yourself down into the saddle, which gives you greater leverage than holding the horn.

You can try an experiment, next time you are in your saddle.  First hold the horn, then grab the lariat rope strap or front saddle strings and pull yourself down, imagining the feeling if your horse were acting up.  You should feel more secure.  But remember:  the rope strap or saddle strings are too light to serve the real purpose.

2 styles available- 3/4" harness leather with a stainless engraved buckle or 1/2" cotton rope.

Hello John,

The Buckaroo package arrived today and by the time I got home it had been ruthlessly torn open and inspected by wife and
daughter in law. How dare I buy tack for my mare without saying anything to them. Never mind that I have bought every piece of tack they
"own" and my girl looks like she wears hand me downs {except for her Tucker saddle}. The tack is beautiful and extremely well made. I think
Sassy Lady even stood taller when I tried everything on her, knowing she's looking sharper than her sisters. As we both know, this won't last because
the women in my life will be finding reasons that they need this, that and everything new from who else? but Buckaroo. Please thank everyone for me,
it a pleasure doing business with you.

Thank you and keep your powder dry,

Chuck Perry
