I'm not sure if "tackaberries" are obsolete, but I can't find them in my horse supply catalogue. We used them on the ranch when I was a kid. They are a little metal buckle type thing that you attach to your latigo so that you don't unwrap your latigo completely and it makes cinching up much easier and quicker. There is a groove that catches the cinch ring and then a little tongue-like tab that fits in the holes of the latigo to secure it when you have it tightened. When you're ready to unsaddle, you simply loosen the latigo a little, slip the cinch off the groove of the tackaberry, and the saddle is loose and ready to take off the horse.
Does anyone know where you can buy these, and does anyone else use them anymore?

There's one on my saddle, but I can't remember where I got it from.

I'd heard of them but I still went ahead and googled them as it has been awhile since I'd last seen them......

That's it! Thank you, SS! I sure miss having one sometimes...I think someone lost it off my latigo when they were carrying my saddle someplace. They're easy to lose if someone else unsaddles your horse, because they don't know not to undo the latigo all the way, and the buckle slips off.

My husband got me one at a tack store, but it was shaped too small for my cinch ring. I'll have to order one of these and try it out.
