I love me some antique western tack. I've got two saddle, both antiques and still functional. I don't think I will ever own a saddle for myself that is less than 30 years old. My oldest saddle is a 1940 model. Needs a few strings replaced and refleecing,but is sound and unique.
That being said, I am owned by three arabs, and love native costume classes. I just wish they were more practical because I could totally get into riding in something similar to that every day. :P
