Sterling mountings have gold horse-head motifs with rope edges throughout, including on the floral domed buttons and conchos. Quilted padded 14" seat, 3 1/2" cantle, 16" swells and 17" Visalia style monkey-nose tapaderos. The breast collar has a large central sterling plate and the bridle features a 3-piece face drop. A fine example from one of the masters.
