Is this a real B Bar B saddle 30 years old

I got this saddle for a little price, on the tie srip it says B Bar B.
There is a silver plate on the saddle but thre is no name on that.
The saddle was from America, her father took it 30 years ago to Holland.
Does anybody know this kind of saddle?

It looks real to me. Nice saddle. Probably either a show saddle or a trail saddle, but good for general riding. Does it fit your horse?

Regular oiling and condition, as well as cleaning it with saddle soap after every ride should fix it up pretty nice(:

Those issues should be easily fixed

Good luck!!

Do you mean the leather that attaches the cinch ring to the saddle itself? Or do you mean the long stap of leather used to tie the saddle on (latigo)>?
Or do you mean the metal ring itself?

All can be replaced, but if there is cracking in the leather, even oiling will not make it safe to use. You should have it looked at by a saddler. Don't ride in it until checked out.
