ca 1800’s Tejano Saddles

Artifacts | Ranching |

Tejano saddles used in the 1700’s were developed by the Spanish Conquistadors when they came to the Americas. These saddles were adapted to suit the needs of vaqueros of New Spain, Texas and California, including the addition of a horn that allowed a lariat to be tied for the purpose of holding cattle and horses.
