Question Anyone who knows anything about Big Horn saddles...

I just bought a new (used) saddle and I was wondering if anyone could tell me anything about it. It is all black with a red seat. Lots of beautiful tooling all over. Both fenders are stamped with the Big Horn logo. Has a number on the back of the seat. Number is 218. It is very old.

Any information on this particular saddle? Older Big Horns in general? The lady I bought it from said she was told it is a 1952 model.

I actually tried the newer one and found it to be very comfortable (and I'm VERY picky! :) ). Frankly if I'd have money I'd get Big Horn as my 2nd saddle (for the worse weather and such).

Well I don't know anything about older big horn saddles, but I have a new one. It's this one and I love it. It's very comfortable and it fits my horse better than any other saddle I have tried on him.
