Not too long ago I posted about Saddles of the World and in doing that research I ran across a number of antique saddle images I had to share too.
The saddles below span the past 600 years and a variety of cultures around the globe. It’s quite interesting to see how this essential riding tool is shaped by each culture.
Some of them are absolutely beautiful and others just make me think “Ouch!”
So Many Types
From old to new there are hundreds of saddle types, but what it all boils down to is how well they do their job. The evolution of this tool is shaped by different cultures & terrains, as is domestic horse itself. What kind of saddle do you use?
