Antique old Saddle
 
This is an old saddle that I have been told is an antique. I really just don't have the time or need to pay a pro to do the research on it, but it could be worth alot. I really just want in gone, and I am attaching pics. Highest offer, or first reasonable offer gets it. Buyer pays shipping or pick up. :) Let me know



*The saddle blanket under it is not for sale. Just used to hide the crate that the saddle was on.

Thats just a link to your harddrive. =)

You can upload pics to photobucket.com for free and post them.

I'd love to see the saddle!

That's one of them. I have a bunch. I am looking to sell so let me know if you can offer. Shipping might be a little costly

REALLY NEEDS TO GO. Reasonable offers accepted. Got quoted a value of about $750.00

Ak1 05-16-2010 04:10 PM

Would like it gone asap

Hi :-)

I'm Nutty Saddler's OH.

Is there a maker's name on the saddle? If you have really been quoted $750 for it, I am on the next plane to the USA with all our ancient (and not so ancient - that one doesn't look terribly ancient compared to some we have on our wall!) English saddles! :wink: They are worth next to nothing in the UK (or out here) and are often given away to hang on pub walls! :lol:

Most of the time, older style saddles need so much repair and re-flocking to make them useable/comfortable/safe, it's not worth doing. Also, I think I can see some damage to the seat - Not 100% certain, it might be the light - but if so, re-seating is an expensive job.

Is the tree sound? Is it spring tree or fixed?

Have you got any more photos of it from other angles: Front arch-on, cantle-on, side-on? Sorry for all the questions....Just interested. :-) (and thinking about booking a plane ticket over there with excess baggage....!)

We had a bonfire with a load in the UK! :shock: (Maybe I should have sold them as antiques!) It prevented them falling into the hands of people who might actually put them on a horse...they were so structurally unsound they weren't worth repairing and would be horrid on a horse. Some I kept to 'autopsy' - it's the best sort of training, taking a saddle apart.

Would be great to see more photos. :-) Thanks :-)

Um, well I can get more pictures, but there is no maker I don't thinkg. It has 'TNT' engraved on the back cantle and LIZA engraved under the gullet.

Cute saddle, but I agree, worth next to nothing. Maybe $25? $45? But not even that if the tree isn't sound. It would help to know the seat size and tree width, and if the tree is sound.
