What Are The Parts Of A Western Saddle?

Below are the parts of a Western saddle shown on two illustrated photos. The first image shows the parts of a saddle while the saddle is on a saddle stand. We thought some of the parts might be a bit difficult to see, so the second photo shows a few of the same parts while the saddle is on a horse. Beneath the photos there's also a brief description of each of the saddle parts.
