- Apr 1 5:33 AMExcellent job, Your Excellency.
This is a very long term project I am planning as well - a Bathory-era
I do have a few questions however.
What kind of saddle are you using? If it's not a home made hussar saddle,
which is closest to the ones the hussars used then, and why did you make the
choices you did?**
How did you attach the wing to the cantle?
** - I have heard, from members of our EQ community here, and in Trimaris &
Atlantia [non-SCAdians, that's the Midwest and the areas stretching from
Georgia, Fla., Md, etc - see http://www.sca.org/geography/welcome.html%5d, that
the McClellan is very close to photos I have of extant hussar saddles. But
after my own examination of photos of extant saddles, I think that a
Peruvian saddle is actually much closer. What do you think?
Any advice you can give is greatly appreciated. :)
