Indiana Parade Saddle Set with Red Padded Seat
This is a really nice saddle. It is an Indiana Model with
a red padded seat and "red brass"(gun metal) horse
medallions on the corners. You might ask what is "red
brass"(aka gunmetal); here is a link to an explanation :
The neat thing about the red brass is that instead of
having a "brassy" look; it looks more like gold. It also
tarnishes off to a really neat metallic "chestnut" brown
if you let it! That can look really striking on certain
horses (like a pinto with chestnut spots).
Even though you think of the classic parade saddle as
having a red seat... you actually do not come across
many in red. Between the golden corners and the red
seat this saddle has quite a bit of flavor and displays
You can tell this set received the best of care over the
years. I actually purchased this saddle some time ago
from it's second owner whose family purchased it in
the sixties. It has some interesting history and I will
share that information with the new owner.
This set includes the saddle, the headstall, full silver
reins, breastcollar, tapaderos, and serapes. The headstall
and reins have all new leather and buckles so you will
be ready to go to the next show! Everything is in great
shape and it could go in a parade or National level
parade class tomorrow. This saddle is a good option for
someone who does not want to purchase a saddle and
then have to go the additional time and expense of
having it restored. It is not missing any silver conchos
and any straps or stitching that were not solid have
been replaced. The lining on this saddle is also solid.
This saddle is now SOLD.
