When I was 8 I had a shetland pony and my saddle was an original Calvary saddle. I remember in the town parade there was a mounted Calvary troup that laughed at my saddle until I asked them if theirs was original leather. They shut up. Now my problem is it's 40 years later, my dad passed away in '92 and mom in January so now I have to liquidate the estate. Can anyone give me an aprroximation of what one would be worth? I'm not sure of the condition until I get back to OK and check it out. Calvary saddles were the ones made from carved wood, covered in leather? Center was open? If you can give me email address I can send pics the middle of June. Mine is email@example.com Man, I loved riding in that saddle and did for years!!! Now it needs tlc and a new home.
Depending on the condition and model of saddle your price will vary. If you get pictures post them here on this form. There are MANY knowledgeable people here in this form that will give you a good idea of what you have and what you might get for it. You might even get a buyer right here too!
Good Luck Ken Doyon
ps “troup” is spelled “troop” ;-)
