Hi all...I am not a horseman and ended up with an old cavalry saddle. It belonged to my great grandfather and has been stored in an attic for a loong time, maybe 70 years? I don't know anything about saddles and am curious if I could gain some info about its age, value, and desirability? My ultimate hope would be to find someone to give it a good home and appreciate it, possibly here? I live in Montana. Thanks in advance, I appreciate any info I can learn about it :)
Here are a few photos. It says it is a Whitman but someone who "sorta" knows about tack said its a Mcclellan? I searched for both and found some info but most of what I found pertains to more current saddles.
