I am offering for sale a fine example of a Whippy side saddle from the famous London saddlers and cap makers, Whippy, Steggall & Co established in the 19th century.  I believe the saddle was hand crafted around 1910.  I bought the saddle in 1984 from Dawn Dodd-Noble,. Sandon Saddlery Company in Hertfordshire.  I used the saddle lightly on an Anglo-Arab gelding 15.1. Narrow fitting saddle.Adjustable leaping head. 18" from cutback head to cantle. 13 1/2 " across widest part of seat. 8" D to D . The leather, stitching and doeskin seat of this saddle are in very good condition as can be seen from the photographs. The original makers label is still intact. Photos of the underside lining reveal some wear, which is to be expected of a saddle of this vintage. The price of the saddle is to include:- 2 side saddle numnahs antique side saddle safety iron and leather balance girth girth
