Hi, anybody knows what type of western saddle is that on picture? I looked everywhere and I can't find anything like it. Thank you for answers :)

Howdy and welcome to the forum!

Truthfully, I don't think it's a "western" saddle persay. It looks more like a spanish vaquero saddle to me.

Paraguay?

deserthorsewoman 09-26-2013 02:36 PM

Not a Spanish one either. Paso saddle? Gaucho maybe? South American I'm pretty sure.

deserthorsewoman 09-26-2013 02:39 PM

Oh, nope, I'd be willing to bet Mexican with a broken- off horn.....

Gaucho! That's the word I was trying to think of but it kept hiding in the dark recesses of my mind LOL.

It doesn't look exactly like the pictures I've seen, but it's not so different. It's certainly not a saddle style commonly seen in the US, that's for sure.

I see on this saddle so many signs of so many different types of saddles, I see there gaucho but also some paso and western, so I am pretty lost now :D So I was thinking that somebody would know better :D

I didn't find similarly looking pony parade saddle. Do you know any?

Seraffas....do you own this saddle or is it just a picture you were wondering about? If you actually have it, check if the horn is broken off. If so it most likely is a silla mexicana. The very basic model of those has everything visibly attached, more elaborate models could be just like this one.
