It really is new. Same knotted stirrup leather and rusty iron. This saddle is nailed on with rusty nails just to try and fool you. They have managed to tear open a seam but have forgotton to add any wear to the seat of the saddle. Seats are very worn if the horse has been played with for almost a century. The pattern on the saddle is often seen on these horses and rarely on a genuine old horse.
