What type of English saddle is this?

Hello everyone

I'm sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but I was wondering if any of you could help me out with this saddle. It belonged to a family member and has been sitting in my tack room for years. I recently decided I wanted to try riding in an english saddle so I rode in it yesterday. It looks really different to me than other ones I usually see, very flat, so I'm wondering if anyone could give me some insight as to what style it's used for. I'm looked online a little bit to try to find out but I think I'm just more confused lol.

Please tell me anything else you think as well, is it cheap looking? Crappy? Etc...

I think it's actually a saddle seat saddle, but I can't tell you much more than that because I know nothing about them! :)

It is a Fox Lane type saddle. They are used in saddleseat riding like saddlebreds, morgans, arabs using saddleseat techniques.

I agree it's a saddle seat saddle. Doesn't look to be in bad shape for having been stored.

Nice find.

They're also called flat saddles or cutback saddles, and they usually fetch a pretty penny if you ever feel like selling it.

Lucky you!
