saddles of the old west (pics)
#11
Given the history of the museum (founded in 1960 based on a collection started in the 1930's), I'd guess most of the saddles are from the early 1900's, though of course the Pony Express was in the 1860's so some of the others might go back that far, too. If you're talking about the black saddle that was on the horse model, there wasn't much of a label on that one, either.

On the texas vs the california horns:

During the late 1800s cattle heyday, texans were known for tying off hard to the horn, whereas californians would dally. That said, that "texas saddle" looks an awful lot like a wade saddle which is not a texas style saddle. Weird.
Cheers!
When asked to perform a task, a horse will almost always respond with a question. A quarter horse asks "you mean like this?" But an arabian asks "why?". Always be willing to answer his question, and you will be rewarded with a beautiful performance. ** as quoted by M. Williams.
