Another of the "Too Hideous for Words" Saddles

I stumbled across this monstrosity on eBay last week. I have NO IDEA why anyone would use this. It looks like the bastard child of a prehistoric fish and a parade saddle. The picture will have to speak for itself.

WARNING: Have your sunglasses and brain bleach at the ready.


Heh, I bet that would be fun to climb up on after it had had the sun shining on it for awhile.
Geesh, the "scales" on the fenders aren't even on there straight. Look at how the skirts curl under too. This is a new saddle, so I would bet it is a cheap, low quality POS made out of cardboard leather. I am just awestruck by the sheer tackiness. Just, wow.

  2. It wouldn't be too fun in the cold either. Why did I just get a mental image of some cowboy in a Christmas parade getting his "boys" stuck to the saddle like a tongue to a flag pole?

  4. You can make saddles out of coelocanths?!?!

    Does it at least protect the horse's back from Ninjas and Black Knights?

  6. Well.....I'll agree that it's probably a POS, it's only $289, and no shipping (which is at least another $50.....(wonder how much it weighs???)

    But......

    If it came with a matching breast collar and bridle, I would have already clicked on the *BIN*.
    It's *giggle factor* is high.....it would be FUN to play around with....and I have no *bits* to freeze to the metal.....LOL....

    Nice corona pad......

  7. Diane, it's free shipping on them. And the ad says it weighs about 33 pounds. LOL Great conversation piece. With out the horn I could almost consider it for a Medieval saddle, almost.... It almost looks like chain mail. (giggle) Then I read Paul's remark and it got mush worse.
