When were saddles invented?
In Horse Tack
In 365 AD, a tribe called the Sarmations is thought to have invented not only the first saddle, but also the first metal stirrups and spurs. The Sarmations were known as serious horsemen, using their horses in battle and sacrificing them to their gods.
The North Iranian Eurasian nomads known in Europe as Scythians and in Asia as Saka developed an early form of saddle with a rudimentary frame, which included two parallel leather cushions, with girth attached to them, a pommel and cantle with detachable bone/horn/hardened leather facings, leather th…ongs, a crupper, breastplate, and a feltshabrack adorned with animal motifs. These were located in Pazyryk burials finds. These saddles, found in the Ukok Plateau, Siberia were dated to 500-400 BC. Iconographic evidence of a predecessor to the modern saddle has been found in the art of the ancient Armenians, Assyrians, and steppe nomads depicted on the Assyrian stonerelief carvings from the time of Ashurnasirpal II. TheScythians also developed an early saddle that included padding and decorative embellishments. Though they had neither a solid tree nor stirrups, these early treeless saddles and pads provided protection and comfort to the rider, with a slight increase in security. The Sarmatians also used a padded treeless early saddle, possibly as early as the seventh century, BC. And depictions ofAlexander the Great depict a saddle cloth. The earliest saddles were simple pads attached with a surcingle seen by 800 BC, with the saddle tree coming into use circa 200 BC, and paired stirrups by 302 AD. The first 'saddle'(Created by the Sarmations) was basically just a cloth thrown over the horses back, this started in central Asia and changed over time to include a surcingle to hold the cloth on. At some point stirrup straps were added and eventually stirrup irons themselves (they were originally made of wood). The design eventually morphed into the Iberian style of saddle, which is still cloth or leather with rolls in front and back. The saddle was 'redesigned' by the English who wanted a saddle that they could jump in as Iberian saddles are not designed for jumping. That is how the modern English style saddle came about. The western saddle was invented by Mexican Vaquero's who used the Iberian saddle and added a horn to the front to attach ropes and equipment. The western saddle was designed for the riders comfort in mind and not the horses when they were first created. It was the infamous Mr sheen One day when he mounted up on his horse, he found himself in a rather uncomfortable position, he then invented the ingenius device the saddle. At first he skinned a sheep, and used the carcass, but then wondered if the wool might be softer , thus ends our story! valsert gasmer phillops invented the saddle . There are some claims that the Assyrians were the first amongthe eastern Mediterraneans to use a saddle, or at least somethingsimilar to a saddle, but without stirrups. . Others claim that the Sarmatians, a people originally of Iranianstock who lived by the Black Sea, invented the saddle, includingstirrups and spurs, around 365 A.D.. They were skilled horsemen whotrained their horses for use in battle. After the Sarmatians wereconquered by the Goths (of southern Russia) towards the end of thethird century, the saddle concept was taken and developed furtherby European Medieval knights. They gave the seat more padding andadded a pommel which rose high in front of the rider to protect hisstomach from lances during jousts. (MORE)
