Where did you find them? Who made the reddish brown one with the tulips?

Nice! Definitely "ogle-able."

Explain to me the "double" stirrup iron on several of the saddles. I'm only familiar with fillis and peacock irons.

I love the first and second one. Lovely.

Oregon Equestrian, if you go here:

you will see a better picture of the double stirrup..both opened and closed. It is designed to open in the case of a rider falling off - so they do not get drug behind the horse.

Kaede,

Most of these beautiful saddles were found on a sidesaddle forum where they sadly only speak French. I joined and asked if any spoke English.. a few did and I have made some interesting discoveries for my blog over there! Lets just way that when they do a historical re-enactment ... there are many historical periods they can choose from! AKA - LOTS of wonderful eye candy!!

Thanks! Missed your earlier post about the safety stirrup. Same thought as a peacock, but much prettier than a rubber band.
