I need of someone to describe how to rig a McClellan saddle.

I would love someone to contact me and or send me to a link that would show how to rig a McClellan saddle. I am a horse trainer and of course know everything and anything about Dressage, western, trail 7/8 rigging to 3 way and crossfire, hunter saddles etc... I am working with someone on teaching them how to ride (for a cavalry unit in Michigan) who finally purchased a McClellan saddle. I am familiar with crossfire rigging and this seems to be very similar. Could anyone direct me to a book or a site that may have photos of different ways of tacking the saddle up. I personally have not seen the saddle as of yet but know from pictures and sites what they do look like tree and all from the basic McClellan to the ones with all the bells and whistles. I hope I am making sense here. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
