Lone Ranger Pony Saddle

I have one of the saddles (and a matching bridle) that is seen on your website. It is a Lone Ranger Saddle child size. Probably is a toy now that I see your site . I would like to know the history/age etc... on it if you have it and what is it worth if you know? Thank you so much. Thanks for touching base. Have a good day!

Hi Karie, The Lone Ranger saddle is a real pony saddle made by Simco probably in early 50’s about the same time Bona Allen was making the Roy Rogers pony saddle. The Lone Ranger is the rarest of the three Cowboy hero saddles made at the time. Hopalong Cassidy had a saddle that was actually used at his theme park near what is now Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. and the Roy Rogers saddle is by far the most common. Condition is everything in determining the value of anything vintage. The fact that it is a seldom seen saddle helps the value and I have never personally seen a Lone Ranger Bridle. If it is in pretty good condition, with nothing missing or torn I would say it is in the $700 range sight unseen. Thanks,

Larry
