    English Saddle
    The farm I work on had this hiding in one of its older barns. My boss told me if I cleaned it up and it was useable I could have it.

    I've got 3 other saddles at home that I've got to get cleaned up and listed for sale to make room for newer better fitting models :)

    Can't remember the brand ATM, but it is a NIIIIICEEEEE saddle.

    This saddle is the first one i have ever bought brand new, all my previous ones were second hand. I saved up forever for this saddle as it fit my horse so nicely, and to be honest i had my heart set on buying new for the first time :p It is an 18.5" collegiate parfaire with wide tree and extended flaps. sooo comfy to ride in!

    This one here is an old Macpherson saddle. i emailed them with the serial number to get some info on it, apparently it was a custom order made in the late 60's or early 70's. I bought it off a member here for a steal of a deal, and lucked out because it fits my horse great! Plus i think its one of the prettiest old saddles ive ever seen. I just love it!

    That's the XTR upgrade, some call it Bull Hide, Buffalo Hide or Elephant Print, too. I love it --- so super grippy :)
