The saddle is based on the saddles from the Renaissance era, so it's called a Renaissance saddle.

Hi Lara, thanks so much for your interest in the saddle.

The saddle is a Renaissance saddle, but unfortunately, the saddle maker stopped making this kind of saddles a few years ago.

So unfortunately, we cannot help you with further information.

Have a nice day!
