Women often fully beaded clothing and other objects associated with children. Much effort was also spent upon beading horse gear. This child’s saddle satisfied both of those penchants. The American flags on the stirrup covers suggest that this saddle was made to be used in Fourth of July parades and other celebrations. The horse, similar to the buffalo, was and still is central to Plains Indian life and spirituality.
