Most of the saddles in this exhibit represent a moment in time when the horse played an equal role with the rider and was more important than form just the following function. Visitors will be able to trace the evolution of the stock saddle from the early and simple ‘mochila’ saddle of the 1800s through the elaborate silver-adorned parade and trophy saddles of today.

 The exhibit will open Saturday, April 8th with a 4-6 p.m. reception featuring museum historian John Copeland and experts Bill Reynolds and Tom Peterson. All will be on hand to talk about the details of each saddle and the history of the saddle makers. James Ontiveros, whose great grandfather Tomas’ saddle is included in the exhibit, will also be here pouring his acclaimed Native9 wines and relaying the history of his ranchero family.
