Trail of Painted Ponies "Silverado," 1E/4,624.
During the first half of the twentieth century, parades and horse shows held in conjunction with rodeos, fiestas and fairs throughout the West fueled a demand for fancy, embroidered saddlery. Elegant, silver-mounted parade saddles, carved with floral and figural motifs, and with matching bridles, martingales and breast collars, were perceived as exquisite works of art. Silverado, a customized interpretation of this flashy tradition by Karlynn Keyes, vice president of The Trail of Painted Ponies, is a masterpiece by any definition.
