Hello,

I am an English dressage rider but I have had this western saddle for a long time. I have decided to sell it but I have no idea how much it is worth as I do not know what kind of saddle it is. I can't find any makers mark or stamp on it.. So if anyone has any clues as to what kind of saddle it is I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you :)

I'm no expert, but the horn seems to be the type you will find on a barrel saddle. How big is the seat? It's a very nice saddle. I am sure you will get a nice price for it.

That kind of horn is also found on cutting saddles, but the seat doesn't look flat enough for a cutter...

There should be some kind of stamp somewhere on it - the latigo holder maybe? Under the fenders?

It might be a barrel saddle except the cantle is usually a hair higher. Though they might've been like that in older saddles. Could it be what's termed an all purpose western saddle ?

The silver trim and roped edging makes me think it could be a pleasure saddle. But I'm guessing more than anything else.

Nice looking saddle no matter what it is. What does it weigh?

There has to be markings somewhere. Look WAY up high under the seat jockey & check behind the fenders. From the square skirt, I'm thinking it's not a barrel saddle unless it's fairly old but even my 45 y/o barrel saddle has a rounded skirt.

Good luck. Please let us know if you figure it out.

Not necessarily, PG. My barrel saddle doesn't have a mark on it anywhere. No number, no writing, no mark, nothing. And it's over 35 years old. This doesn't mean that this saddle might not have one somewhere. It's possible .

And there are square skirted barrel saddles. But, again, that doesn't mean that this saddle is a barrel saddle. In my opinion, I don't think it is either.
