I do not know a lot about this saddle, but I was told it is German. It has many great features that show that it is vintage, although I do not know the exact age. The tree, beneath the hand laced rawhide, has leather, and I'm not sure what is beneath the leather to give the tree its shape. At the gullet and at the back of the underside of the saddle, there is wood that is covered with painted canvas plus some metal at the gullet. The padding is discolored but in excellent condition.The leather on the saddle is discolored but in good condition, with only very mild signs of being dry, but it takes mink oil well. The grab strap and the other strap at the gullet are dry. The 3 billet straps on the left side of the saddle are dry and should be replaced.
