BT Crump?

My new bo had a saddle sitting out that she said her husbands mother used to use to show saddleseat with. I asked her if I could clean it up ( I enjoy that type of stuff) and she told me to have at it. I know nothing about English sadles, but it looks like a saddleseat saddle. I looked underneath, and it says BT Crump. It also is stamped with Lane Fox and Made in England. Can anyone tell me about these saddles, quality and the like?

Crumps are very nice, well made saddles, especially the older ones.

My very first saddle was a Crump saddleseat. Loved that saddle. Even used it for trail riding for awhile, until I bought a more hill/mud/water compatible saddle.

The English-made Crumps are quite nice. Some Crumps were also made elsewhere (I don't quite remember, but I think some were from Argentina). The English ones are the best ones. I had a Prix de Saute and loved it. They're not top-of-the line. They're a good mid-range saddle made of decent materials and decent workmanship. I'm thinking of the ones from right around the '80's here.

Mine was made in England, and I bought it in 1977-78. Don't remember exactly.

Yes, they're not AWESOME saddles like Stubben, Black Country, etc., but they're very good mid-grade saddles.

Crump saddles used to be much more popular than they are today.

Crump made good stuff in the older days - the Chetak line used to be from them but now it's icky stuff.... I have an old Chetak bridle and a newer one (10 years apart) and the difference is like italian leather and cardboard.

I love the old brands ... I loved Millers Harness & Saddlery when they were an entity on their own - Collegiate in the old days was a namebrand to be proud to own...

I don't knows TONS about Lane fox, but I know they make different models of saddleseat stuff anywhere from a very basic starter saddle of low to medium quality to some $1000 + saddles that look and feel very nice.

Sounds like you have a treasure!

So here are some pics of the saddle. I took a before pic of what it looked like when I first layed eyes on it, and took an after pic when I got done cleaning it up.

That looks to me like one of those early ones that are well made. What a nice find! Now you just need a gaited horse........LOL! Or do you have one already? Haha!

WOW..... nice job

My daughters pony is gaited, but I doubt it would fit her lol. She said I could use it if I wanted to, and I thought about it just for fun because I've never ridden in one. I googled and found that it said the older ones were all made in narrow trees. If that's true, then it won't fit my gelding. Sad face lol. It took forever to clean it. It had mold growing all underneath it, and spiders living in it. The sturupp leathers are cracked, but everything else seems to have weathered the abuse pretty well!

That poor saddle! Thankfully you found it and brought it back to life! I hate it when saddles get neglected so badly.
