    The front looks sort of McClellan like but there are no rings for attaching gear so that's out. I'm guessing its a custom small saddle maker rig.
    Good job on the find, I sometimes bring more stuff home from the dump than I take too.

    Yeah it it pretty cool my husband keeps telling me to get rid of itand sell it but who knows it may actually be worth something if not now one day . And no there's no markings, stamps numbers or anything. Thanks for the input everyone

    I don't know what the heck it is, but it's really cool. My first thought was a Plantation saddle. But on further thought, I'm sure it's not. Way cool find. You should put it on Antique Road Show and see what it is and what it's worth.

    I think it's an old Spanish saddle, kind of like these:
    Equus Libris - Andalusian, Iberian, Baroque Horse tack, books, & more...

    Only a lot older!

    It looks like a pretty cool collector's item .

    It looks a bit like an old plantation style saddle, the flaps and external stirrups, or a South American Paso type saddle.

    ** UPDATE** I found out what it is

    It is a 13" chulds plantation saddle made between 1820-1850 and the guy said it was in remarkable condition especially for the age. And the value is around 800 to 1800 depending on the collector

    Wow, that's really cool that it's so old. I just can't figure out why someone would have put an antique saddle in that good of condition in a landfill.

    That is such a neat looking saddle. Do those things have trees?
