This saddle has no serial number..?

This saddle was in my cousin's barn, and I got it out so I could clean it and try to use it on my horse.. but I don't know if it's still okay to use, or what kind of saddle it is.. My cousin doesn't know anything about it either other than she bought it used and barely used it. It's just been sitting out in her barn for probably 12 years, but what kind of saddle is it, if I clean and condition it could it be used?

I have one that looks alot like it.. Mine has no markings on it either.

It is old but I don't know how old. I bought mine in Texas about 20 years ago and it looked like yours does now. I used it for several years but don't use it now. I cleaned it up and have it sitting in the living room just for looks!

Before you use it I would have a saddle repair shop/person look at it. that leather could be rotten and any strain on it could snap it. You may be like me and just use it for decoration.

im curious to see what someone says this is... I don't know much about differences in saddles, but I have an old Kenway Association and it looks somewhat similar to this (but mine has less tooling)

Kinda looks like an old Bona Allen form the 70's, has the beartrap swells and flatter seat, but then again a great deal of Trail Saddles were made like that during the time period.

A good cleaning and several oilings and it will last another 40 years


May all your Trails be happy and safe ones
