This is a roughly 15" to 15 1/2" saddle. It's old and it has had some work done to it. It has semi quarter horse bars.
The furry lining is intact. It would be a great piece to add to a collection. It is an eye catching and collection worthy. The saddle shows its age in the following respects: the leather fenders are lined with a soft material which is peeling in some areas.
Cinch strap is intact but dry. The saddle horn will need to be restitched. I feel like the leather is in overall fair to good condition. Would I ride in it? The seat is way padded to ensure your tailbone is more comfortable than not.
Someone sat in this saddle when I put it on display at a local event described it as a cadillac. I wish I knew more about this gorgeous piece of western history but I do not. I have taken many pictures for your viewing.
