This is an illustration of a Whippy Saddle.
This English saddle dates from the 1939 – 1940 and would have been a very popular saddle.
The cut back wither and wide flat seat made it a very comfy fit for a wide range of horses and ponies. The seat would have been pigskin as it hard wearing.
Very high quality leather would have been used.
Provenance: Drawing by Eva Travers, 1949.
