A horse saddle used by Ernest Robinson. It has two stirrups toward the front. Each stirrup is covered in leather where the foot rests. Each side has a leather fender covering the belted portion of the stirrup and hobble strap. The saddle horn has a small metal attachment on the inside in the shape of a shield with “11 INCH / SEAT” engraved on it. The cantle has three metal attachments fastened to the inside and outside with rectangular holes in the middle. Metal rings, buckles, fasteners, and other attachments are along the outside and lower portions of the saddle seat. The Seat has oblong holes running down the center from the horn to the cantle. The seat underside is lined with wool. Embossed on the proper left side of the saddle behind the seat is “RVP 4918.” Letters scratched below the embossed lettering appear to read “LEL.” A canteen is attached to the front proper left side of the saddle. The canteen is covered in brown canvas with “U.S.” stenciled on it. The canteen's cap is wood with a leather strap attached at the top. Attached to the proper left side of the saddle is a front cinch made of knotted rope and leather.
