Help Finding Info On A Saddle
I need some help guys! A friend has borrowed us a saddle with the option to buy it. She used to ride and got out of it a few years ago now. She told my husband for me to make an offer on the saddle. Problem being, Im not big into western. I rode western when I was younger but don't know much when it comes to names of western saddles (of course asides from the big names you see a lot)
Its an older saddle. It was just put into a garage and left there so as soon as she handed it to us I cleaned it up. Its already looking better. While cleaning it the only marker I have found is the letters YMCA on the skirt under the fender. Other than that, there is nothing!
Also Im wondering.. while being stored it wasnt done so correctly. It was left sitting wrong and part of the skirt is bent. Its more so by the front rigging D. Its like its folded in. Will that effect its use? Would it be bad to use it like that? The other side is stiff and straight down while this side is bent in from being left sitting like that. I don't plan to do a lot of riding with it, just once or twice a month MAX. My guys are pretty much pasture puffs with a ride here and there down the road. No cantering really either, mostly walk with a tiny bit of trot.
Thanks in advance guys! Ill try to get some pictures later today =)
