"Historic Parade saddles for the discriminating collector" 

Museum Tour of Silver Saddles

(DO NOT MISS THIS !  click on picture above ) 

  Ted Flowers

Call me direct in Prescott, Arizona, at (928) 515-3029
This is one of the most desirable models of the famous Ted Flowers Parade Saddles.  The seat size is a generous 15 1/2 inch with a 3.5 inch cantle and a 15 inch fork.  The complete set consists of the Saddle, Tapaderos (with swivels), Serapes, Breast Collar, Bridle and silvered Reins. GERMAN SILVER throughout, too.   The sheepskin is brand new as are the flashy covered saddle strings !  Freshly oiled, new straps on the Breast Collar and fully polished makes this the saddle to have as this year's parade season opens up.  This complete package would look perfect in your Western Themed home, a movie cowboy themed Man Cave and would be a true centerpiece in your local Museum! 

Interested?  I guarantee this one will not last long before some lucky collector snaps it up.

Ted Flowers HIP DROPS for parade saddles
The HIP DROP panel is made to fasten from the rear of the saddle to the crupper by the horse's tail.  This is the absolute ultimate in parade dress for any silver saddle.  This one was created by the renowned Ted Flowers of Alexandria, Indiana, circa 1960s.  The leather is soft and supple and it has all the parts (crupper, belt to the saddle and all the tips for finish).  The metal is German Silver which polishes like fine sterling without the cost.  The "four square" type of plates show shine from all directions and really make an outfit outstanding.  The unique large arrow head pattern is the most unusual I have ever seen in a Hip Drop. (I have restored/refurbished over 223 of these saddles !)  One of the photos shows a yard stick to help you appreciate the size of this set.  With its design and size it would look equally outstanding on a large horse or a smaller backed Arab.
This is the finishing touch you need for your outstanding parade saddle.  You will not be likely to ever see one like this again.  Here's a bonus !!  .... FREE SHIPPING in the continental USA

Most of the Parade Saddles that I  sell were created by famous makers Ted Flowers and Bruce Lovins.  They made saddles 50+ years ago using German Silver, Monel, Nickel and Aluminum metals.  This was less expensive and more durable than Sterling, but looks like silver.   I refurbish each rig as completely as possible while maintaining the original parts.   These saddles weigh approximately 75 pounds including serapes, breast collar, etc.   For more information click HERE

 I have restored and sold over 223 of  these Parade saddles ( predominantly made by Ted Flowers and Bruce Lovins) .  

 If you are searching  for a parade saddle or have one to sell please contact me immediately  All saddles are oiled, tightened and fully polished and refurbished or restored as needed before delivery.  I also do insurance appraisals for a small fee.    Call me if you have any questions.
