Saddle Notes (as of 19 January 2002)
The last time I did a bibliography for this project, I put it here. Please remember that I haven't actually worked on this project in about 4 years. I can't find the actual documentation for the leather piece and the stirrups, but I'm looking for tmem now
A section of a saddle found in York. If you will notice the holes, these suggest the rawhide thonging attachment of some Mexican packsaddles I've seen. (Hall, Richard. The Viking Dig.1984)
A section of leather, also from York. Presumed to be from a saddle.
Some ideas for stirrups, loosely based on on some Saxon stirrups.
Total idea for assembly. I was actually planning to try a pillow instead for the seat. The thing under the wooden frame is planned to be a thick pad.
