But, I will say, if I had the room to store that saddle inside and the money to completely restore it, it has to be an antique. My uncle (42yrs) got it from his great grandpap that got it from someone when he was a kid. Soo..figure everyone lived 60-80yrs, that's around 150-200yrs old.
I'm kinda bummed I traded it in for things at the saddlery that I could use now..since it could've been handed down to my kids again, but I just don't have the money to fix it.
I'd see if you can find -any- information on it and take it. Even if it needs a new fender/stirrup leather, that's not a tooo bad fix. A broken or twisted tree would be the only way I'd steer away from another saddle like this, even if I'll never personally use it, haha.
