Texas West saddle
 
Today I bought a Texas West saddle number 6, does anybody know this brand saddle?

I am not familiar with the brand. If you can post some good pics including under the jockeys and skirts I maybe able to let you know about the quality of the build.

These are the pics that I have of the saddle.

I would like to see how the rigging is attached. That is usually the best sign of quality. Looks like there used to be a concho on the horn, the leather looks like quality, and the tooling is deep. If it fits your horse and you well then I think all is good as long as the rigging is secure. I would do something about the build up around the screws..an old toothbrush and saddle soap will take care of that.

It's old, but I am seeing quality. The rigging is well secured and not worn. Take good care of it and enjoy.
