It was from a local sale and the owner said her friend had ridden in it for years. The lady was well in her 60s. I would imagine the saddle was made in the 1960s. Considering its age it's in very good condition having leather straps but it does show wear.
The saddle would make a great display piece or you can put it on a horse and put it to work. I apologize for how I displayed it on our horse I should have put it on properly but I was in a bit of a hurry. I'm always willing to answer questions or provide more photographs if you desire.
