A fine example of a traditional Mexican saddle. The rawhide covered Jineta pattern wooden tree reflects Moorish origins with an high, leather trimmed cantle and carved horn. The removable brown leather mochila is heavily tooled in traditional floral patterns with the long flaps covering large pockets. The underside is padded with contemporary replacement burlap. Complete with wood stirrups covered with large Mexican style leather hoods. A similar saddle is known to have been owned by Mexican General Santa Ana.
