This lovely all purpose saddle was used by a member of the Dalton Valley Hunt the 1960s, with a long forward flap and half-deep seat, front and rear panel rolls for security. In a rich tobacco-honey leather, the original owner resided in Dalton in Furness, England, and brought this saddle with her to the United States when she was married in the 1970s. It has been stored for many decades and was found at her estate sale upon the owner’s death. Very little can be found about this particular brand but it is most-likely a custom-made saddle that was made specifically for this rider. Very good quality, 17 inch seat, stamped D. Valley, TORINO, No 750, Sorbo (which refers to a thin layer of rubber under the leather on the seat), spring seat, flexible points, made in England. A lovely retro piece of décor or riding equipment that has certainly stood the test of time. Comes with wide brown stirrup leathers and irons, c1960s. Flap measures 16 inches wide x 14 inches long.
