Confederate McClellan saddle

During the American Civil War, many Confederate cavalrymen provided their own horses and civilian saddles. In time, the Confederacy issued the Jenifer saddle. But when Southerners' horses grew thin because of the inadequate food supply, the Jenifer saddle became painful to the bony withers of the horses. In 1863, the Confederate army issued the lighter and better-contoured McClellan saddle with russet leather to its cavalry. This is my version of the rebel saddle. Leather in the south became scarce so this saddle lacks the stirrup hoods. Thanks for looking.

It has been ready for several weeks now. The problem is with taking the photographs. I much prefer natural light; I haven't been happy with the results using flash. To use natural light I normally use my conservatory for photos. But this time of year it has only just started to get light when I go to work and it's dark when I get home. Even when I have time during the day the weather has been too dark and overcast - not impossible with a tripod but it is easier to wait for better light. As soon as the light is suitable ....
