McClellan Saddle Books

Recommended Posts


I recently acquired a McClellan saddle tree and going to make it my winter cabin fever project. I would like to find some books or documentation with detailed information on McClellan saddles. I have see some copies of original blueprints on the internet but never a completed set. I"m interested in measurements for the rigging, stirrup adjustments, ect. If anyone has some suggestions or can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

You need to find the Ordnance Memoranda for the model of McClellan you have.  These Memoranda should give you the details.  For example, stirrup leathers in the 1891 Memoranda are 1 3/8" wide,  cut length is 56" with a finished length of 53"
