It is not clear whether this is a saddle or pack saddle due to the presence of a saddle horn. All of the old Mexican pack saddles that I have seen before do not have the horn. Even so, the seat is like the seat on pack saddles. Ropes are attached to both segments, and t appears to be a cinch or leather strap on one side. This is a very rustic, interesting piece with alot of character. It could be placed either inside or outside as a decorative piece.If shipped outside of the US, the buyer is responsible for the payment of all applicable duties/tariffs.
