Description: A unique and rare example of a Native American (Navajo) ladies saddle from the late 1800s. How do we know it is a ladies saddle? Because of the saddle horn. Items such as a cradle board was hung on the saddle horn. Navajo men's saddles from this time period usually did not have a saddle horn as it would have be in the way when hunting or fighting. This saddle is handmade and retains most of its original form and decorations. The original hand-bent cedar wood stirrups are even there. The vintage Navajo saddle blanket pictured is included with the saddle. The saddle custom made stand can be included, but only if the buyer makes arrangements to pick it up, we will not ship the saddle stand.
This is an awesome and fairly rare collectors piece that would go perfect in your collection! Remember, we accept returns for 30 days (just in case you are not satisfied in any way). So what have you got to lose? We stand behind what we sell and want you to be happy!
