Western Fred Mueller high back saddle in excellent condition.
Aprox. 80-90 year old "high back" saddle hand made by the famous Denver saddle maker, Fred Mueller. I got this saddle aprox. 35 yrs. ago from an old rancher who had owned it for nearly 50 yrs. All original including stirrups, wool...even the saddle strings, etc. Spent most of it's "life" hanging in the original owner's ranch tack room literally covered in a 1/4" layer of saddle soap keeping the leather in remarkable condition or displayed in my living room. Has aprox. 14" seat but fits more like a 15" seat with the under cut swells.
I've started a few colts down thru the years and gathered cattle in this saddle. Ideal for the narrower kind of horses with a good wither. Not a fit for flat backed or mutton withered horses. Great fit for most 2/3 yr. old colts.
Though a collecters item that will only continue to increase in value as time goes by, it's still a great ridin' saddle.
Asking $1,750.00 or best offer.
