Just picked up my new (used) saddle today!!
 
It's a Big Horn Model 723

Now time to start outfitting it, I need to find a matching headstall and breastcollar, and I think I'm going with this saddle pad in black:

I got you hooked on the bighorns, didn't I! *laugh*

I bought my first bighorn because of your recommendation actually, then I decided I wanted one this color instead of black and found this a few days ago!! So I would say yup :-)

I can't figure out if the 723 is a serial number or model number...anyone know vintage bighorns??

If you email bighorn they should be able to tell you! I had great luck with them, I emailed with pictures of my older bighorn and the guy emailed me back with information about it and the page it was on in their catalog in 1969! It was awesome.

Also, that looks like a nice saddle! I love bighorns, especially older ones. Congrats!
