Crosby Arabian 21 Saddle
First post! I was given a Crosby saddle, it says under the flap "Arabian". It is in very good shape and was well cared for. I am not familiar with these saddles at all. I have searched on line and find very similar saddles but they don't say "Arabian". It is a cut back saddle and I believe it was used for saddle seat riding. I would so appreciate if anyone could give me any type of information on this saddle.

A picture would help, a lot.


I believe that this means a Arab tree was used in construction.
Slightly different shaped tree and possible a shorter length one as Arabs are known to have shorter backs as a breed characteristic.
The "21" is probably the length of the seat sizing...

If it is a cutback, saddle seat style ...something like this

I think this was a common look saddle for Morgans, Saddlebred, Tennessee Walkers...the shape of the tree allowed the wider shoulder area to travel freely for those who rode this type of discipline...
I always think when seeing saddles like this of the fancy high-stepping horses not only in a show ring but out in the park for a Sunday outing with their rider.
The information might not all be accurate, but a start in the answers for "what is it"...

...

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....
