Davis served under the leadership of General Pershing in the 10th Calvary division. When the troop ran after Creek Indians , they had to travel a long and grueling journey on hard trotting horses. The rides were rough so William had an idea of how to make these rides easier by modifying the saddle they were using.

What would it be like without the riding saddle?
Without the riding saddle it would make riding horses difficult. If William Davis had never created this , it would be tough to sit on horses and it would be difficult to hold on to them.
