Newest saddle restoration project

I am waiting at the mailbox for this little beauty still, but I can't wait to get my hands on it! I am not sure what the maker is, but I restored a children's saddle last year that had the exact same tooling design on the edges too, so I will start there. It does not come with fenders or stirrups, so I am looking into maybe having some done custom since the design is very simple and I have a very good idea as to what it should look like.

Does anyone know of a place that does custom jobs like that? Links would be appreciated.

The sheepskin underside has been redone. I am on the fence about this. It looks as if it was done well, but it was done with fleece. I very much like to have them done with wool(sheepskin). I will see how I feel about it once it gets here.

Other than that, the horn cap needs to be resewn. No biggie. I have some nice nylon string that is perfect for that.

Can't wait. I am digging the big old hard seat on it. I'm a sucker for hard seats! It will get a good going over and I will see what else is going on and whether it is suitable for riding again or just decoration. Then, when it is all done, I always have to fight myself on whether to keep it or not! I have two saddles already, but you can never have too many saddles right? I mean, Mana is being broke out later this year....

The last photo is of the tooling on the children's saddle I did last year. You can see that they are the same.
Anywho! Here she be:
