    Default They Don't Make Saddles Like This Anymore

    Go through the slide show to see the various saddles. We've come a long way baby!

    Beautiful, but the make my bum sore just looking at them....not to mention how they must have made horses' backs feel....

    The owners I show a horse for ended up buying a real Moorish saddle to use in Friesian Period Costume. That thing is just VICIOUS. The tree points tip INWARD. It's a nasty piece of work. Have horses changed shape so much since it was made??? LOL

    Moorish horses were probably a LOT smaller, lighter and narrower than a modern-day Friesian.
