Looking at the size of the horn, I don't think it's a roping saddle. My guess would be barrel due to the deep seat, but not sure.

To me, the pommel isn't wide enough and the seat isnt' deep enough I don't think to be a barrel saddle. Most barrel saddles I've seen or owned have wider pommels to lock the knees in and a higher cantel to hold the butt in place. But I definitely could be wrong. Hmyer is right...that's way to small and thin of a horn to be roper. Looks to me like just your basic western pleasure saddle..

Except for the silver lacing this looks like the Virginian trail saddle shown here on the saddleshop.

Most Tex Tan saddles have numbers and letters on the inside above the stirrups. Give these to Tex Tan and maybe then they can help.They helped me with my flex tree saddle that I bought used.

My horse is a Spotted Saddle Horse.I got him free but found out there is no such thing as a free horse.His name is Max ,he is 1,300 lbs 16-2 hands high and he eats like a horse.This is the 1st horse I ever owned.I had him 2 yrs now.He seems to teach me more then I teach him.I'm afraid he has been spoiled by me already.He thinks he's just a pet and not a horse.I take him out on the weekends behind my house in the 100 acre overgrown sod farm.He is faster at getting home then going.Lol.He is 10 yrs old.He is a gaited horse.I've tried a Tom Thumb bit on him but he likes the Dr Cook western headstall best.I change every once in awhile.I'm 56 yrs old ,married for 36 yrs almost and my wife doesn't ride anymore,went on a trail ride with her yrs ago and her back ached for 3 months so she turned me on to riding and then that was it.I ride alone .I have a old kingston horse trailer 1977 but it needs paint on the inside and the wife has to many projects for me to do lately.I live on Long Island New York.

Thanks for the information about your horse adventures. Max sounds like a great horse and I would love to see a picture.
