Hi. I realize this thread is from over 2 years ago, but hopefully I'll get somewhere with this. Did you ever get any info. On the saddle? I'm going to be putting donated horse equipment on ebay
to benefit an equine rescue here in Minnesota. I have a donated English saddle from Martin Custom Saddlery/ Great Britain and I have no idea what it is worth etc. It is the same type of distressed-looking leather you describe. I have also looked all over for info. But only find the Martin western saddles. This post was the only thing I found on the internet, but unfortunately there were no replies! Does anyone know about these saddles? Please help!!!! Thanks!!!!!
