Hi there,
Can anyone please help me to identify this saddle?
I have been asked to restore this beautiful yet neglected saddle. It looked awful when I first received it but now it’s been cleaned up and looks completely different.
It has a makers name studded on a little flap beneath the skirt stating “Ashwick saddle Co
Made in England”
And a badge with a capital A on the point below the pommel.
I have been unsuccessful in finding any information online.
Also, do you think this saddle is in need of reflocking?
I’m always on the hunt to learn more. I originally thought the A was maybe the Anthill logo.
Cheers in advance guys

The saddle will be one made by Ashwick Saddle Co, there used to be a company called that though I don't know if they still exist.

I wouldn't want to pass comment on the flocking since that's a job for a saddler. I suspect looking at it it could do with some tlc, but realistically flocking needs to be done to suit the horse it will go on. If it was old and neglected I also wouldn't put it on a horse without having the tree checked for damage and the girth straps and webbing they're attached to checked for safety.

Good cleaning job though :)
