The cantle sits on the back of the saddle, and in the case of the carousel horses, they are beautiful! They are relief-carved, highly detailed, fabulously painted, and so much fun. Each one is completely different, and bound to raise a smile in adults and children alike. A documentation effort should go forth on just these motifs!
MPFC subsequently treated two horses and several decorative objects from the carousel.
