Vintage Western Horse Saddle Lot Simco Big Horn Bonanza 504. 2 for the price of 1!!!
Number one, 12 pictures arent enough for two saddles i found out. If you need another pic let me know.
I believe these saddles are from the early 70's or so. They are highly tooled and show excellent craftsmanship. The little leather tie downs are pretty stiff and have dried out really bad. These saddles are both well used and show signs of wear and age. The Simco has only one thing i can see wrong with it.
The stitching on a piece of the leather has let go on the back side undeneath all the other leather. Other than that it appears really solid See pics. The Bonanza has a tear in the stirrup leather and needs the back tail piece re-stiched. Both repairable at a modest cost, would be my guess.
The fleece underneath is worn on both saddles with a couple small spots missing fleece The only marking i could find on Simco was the Daisy flower on horn. The Big Horn you can barely make out the Bonanza on the horn. The Big Horn is, i think, 15. See pics The Simco, i think, is about 14 1/2.
I got conflicting info on exactly how to measure a saddle online so look at the pics and judge for yourself. I think with a modest amount of repair you could have two really nice old vintage rideable saddles.
