Western Saddle By Louie Minglero, Ruby Lee, Red Bluff Ca?

Recommended Posts

I have an old youth western saddle, marked "Ruby Lee, Red Bluff, Calif." that I'm trying to date and price. I believe it was made by Louie Minglero, but know nothing else. What research I've done hasn't yielded much. The saddle was a cheap eBay find years ago, and that may be all it is, but it's lovely and old enough that I'd like to know more if possible. I will upload photos and more details. Any advice or insight would be appreciated - this seemed to be a very knowledgeable forum. TIA!
