    hi jason72 , Im writing after coming across an antique saddle you posted in 2017, I did a google search of my grandfathers name J. A. Young Cavan. I was v surprised to see your post of the saddle as Ive looked for probably 30yrs and Ive never seen a saddle of his. Im assuming your saddle was made by my grandfather. At time of his death in 1946, there were 4 saddlers in our small town, with the 4 premisesprobably no more than 150yrs apart a time when the horse was critical on the agricultural landscape. The town Cavan is a County Town (north of midland Ireland) and on the South side of the border with Northern Ireland, approx 8mls from the border. My Grandfather was in business from 1904 to 1946 in Cavan Town at Main Street, Cavan and when he passedaway my father (aged 16) took over the business with 4 saff until approx 1950 when the business died with the tractor arriving and farmers moving aware from using working horses. Coincidentally yesterday Jan 17th 2019 was the the 73rd anniversary of John A Youngs death. Quite incredible to see a saddle of his (or my fathers) stillextisting. I hope this message gets to you....for Info. Im not a member of the MyHorse Forum but signing up tonight to make contact. My email is eptyoung@gmail.com should you wish to reply. Best Regards, Enda Young

    You need to put an @ and link his name for him to get an alert to this post, or reply directly to one of his posts using the reply feature. Otherwise it's just luck that they'd see it.

    Good luck-!!

    Tnks mooselady, Yes, it has a slim chance if connecting with him. I joined the forum thinking I might be able to make contact but his last posting was in April 2017. I might need to try some other way... enda

    Did you try sending him a private message? I know the automatic settings are supposed to send you an email when you get a private message, so maybe he would get it?
