Category: Trail Saddles

Purchase: I BOUGHT THIS ODD LOOKING SADDLE 25 YEARS AGO, OR SO, AT A YARD SALE FOR $25.00. I NEEDED SOME SORT OF SADDLE, DID NOT CARE WHAT IT WAS. IT IS DIFFERENT LOOKING. LOOKS RATHER LIKE A CALVARY SADDLE, BUT HAS WESTERN BASKET WEAVE. IT HAS A BIG HUMP, WITH A HOLE THRU IT, INSTEAD OF A HORN. THE STAMP ON IT SAYS, ESTABLISHED 1893, BUT NO BRAND NAME. A SADDLE DEALER SAID HE THOUGHT THAT BONA ALLEN WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO STARTED THAT YEAR. I HAVE NO IDEA. SO, I WONDER IF ANYONE KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT THIS "STRANGE LOOKING" SADDLE? SOMEONE TOLD ME THEY SAW ONE LIKE IT IN A MUSEUM IN MISSOURI. MAYBE A MUSEUM WOULD HAVE ONE, I SHOULD LOOK! I AM CONSIDERING SELLING THE SADDLE, BUT I WANT TO FIND OUT WHAT IT IS, SO I CAN GET SOME SORT OF VALUE ON IT. MURIEL murielwolfe@hotmail.com

Likes: I LIKE THAT IT IS OLD AND "ODD" LOOKING.

Dislikes: NOTHING!

Quality: IT IS STILL IN GOOD SHAPE, QUITE GOOD, EXCEPT A LITTLE OF THE SHEEPSKIN UNDERSIDE HAS WORN OFF.

Summary: I REALLY WANT TO FIND OUT WHO MADE THIS, WHAT IT IS EXACTLY AND HOW MUCH IT MIGHT BE WORTH.
