THE LATE ROGER PHILPOT (PRESIDENT OF THE SIDE SADDLE ASSOCIATION)

HISTORIC COLLECTION OF OVER 40 SIDE SADDLES

Will be sold at Auction on Friday 14th December 2018 by Bigwood Fine Art Auctioneers at 

The Old School, Tiddington.


The collection is unique and includes rare and early saddles from 1850’s to include saddles made by Martin and Martin, Robson, Harries of Shrewsbury and Knoud ( New York) to name but a few.  Over the years Roger built up this large collection of historical side saddles and stirrups which he was very proud of. He enjoyed sharing his knowledge of the saddles history with all visitors to his home and several seminars were organised to facilitate this. 

The Side Saddle Association (SSA) are creating a record of the collection which will be available to all.
The auction will also include his collection of hunting prints and interesting equestrian memorabilia and will present an opportunity to buy not only a piece of history but also some working side saddles.  Roger is famous for his “Flat Caps”, he always wore one and would often use it as a “Queens pad”, slipping a cap under the riders knee on the fixed head of the side saddle so as to straighten the riders position in the saddle. Otherwise he was known to take it off and wave it in the air shouting “Tally Ho” to encourage riders to canter on and jump, always with a slightly mischievous happy sparkle in his eye.  He gave everyone an opportunity to experience riding aside and would want his legacy to live on.
