Antique Saddlery and Horse Equipment

By September 8, 2007

Follow me on:

I love antiques, and of course I find horse related antiques very interesting. One local museum has an antique side saddle I am coveting. But they won't let me check it out and try it. (It's a museum after all, not a library.) Here's an online collection of horse gear that kept me browsing and wishing I had more empty rooms to fill.

Sorry, I’m not sure what this is. A photo might be helpful and perhaps someone on the forum can help. Don’t worry, sign-up only takes a minute and it’s free.

Hello, I have a a tool that a very old lady brought into my shop. She said it belonged to her grandfather to lance boils on a horse.
It appears to be brass and is marked brinkerhoff n y Would you happen to know a value of something like this???

Thanks so much. : )

I have an antique leather horse fly sheet that belonged to my (great)grandfather. Any ideas on how to restore it for display? Is there any value to these other than sentimental?

We have just got a mass of working horse collars and miscellaneous items from a French barn. No idea of age but they need restoring.

We also have an almost complete hay/wood wagon with front and back “chassis”, 4 good wheels and other bits and pieces. They are here in France in the Vosges, near Epinal. There could be a Renault tractor, probably 40 + years old, works a treat.

Anyone interested? Please go to http://www.remede-naturel.net and contact through there. Thank you.

I have a equine weight trainer thats made by a company called Kope. The company is no longer around and I can’t find any information on it. It’s in perfect condition and never been used. I’m trying to find the value of it, its leather mostly except the band that goes across the back of the horse. Have you ever heard of anything along the lines of this?
