It's actually a little different, but I do remember riding in one of those saddles in the early 80's. Place was a riding school in Germany run by an ex cavalry officer. That saddle was old then already.......but quite comfy and secure.
Road Trip! I convinced my hunny to make the three hour trip. I'm excited lol. Is this how hoarders feel when they stash new items? I hope its usuable, I can't wait ro clean them up! Posted via Mobile Device
Almost home with them lol. The English looking saddle isn't any count. The leather is rotted off the underside of the flaps and the flocking is coming out in chunks.ill proboly just give it away to someone who has the funds to restore it, but I'm not even going to clean it. The western on the other hand, I can't wait to take the soap to it lol. Posted via Mobile Device
Don't worry, ill have some pics to drool over in a few hours! I.hope anyways... The leather is a little cracked on the fenders, but I'm hoping a good oiling or three will bring it back to life a bit. Even if I end up replacing the fenders, I don't think ill be in too much over my head. It has square metal rings on the back that I've never seen before. I'm guessing its to tie something too. And it has a rope holder built into the saddle, I'm so excited, like a kid in a candy store. Posted via Mobile Device
