18th-19th century Hussar's saddle

This saddle is made in accordance with authentic trees and other saddles' acessories that are deposited in Austrian Forchtenstein Castle. On the following pictures is gradually shown how particular parts are assemled to the entire hussars' saddle set. Because saddle cloth with fur cover were not my concern, both of them are resolved only temporarily.

My special thanks belong to Mr. Herbert Zeichmeister, castelan of Forchtenstein Castle who allowed me to study in local collections.
