You might pm to Dyslexia on this one. I promise he'll know more than I.
Well, he's certainly not going to know less.
Hey Roger! How are you? Thanx! I bet Dys would know something about this topic. I appreciate it!
Jumbo brand saddles are well made roper saddles, the pre 1940 are collectors, used to be very popular with 4 H cause they tend to be dressy, they sit well with most horses. I always prefered the Mcclland style but Jumbo are very nice if in excellent condition.
I was really hoping someone could help me out with this. I can't find much at all. The library wasn't much help. Does anyone have any idea how I would go about finding the history of companies? I tried googling the company name with the word history but found pretty much zip.
Have you looked at this
They're looking for a very particular Jumbo saddle that used to belong to Ross Perot's father, and have this Jumbo for sale
They seem quite knowledgeable - could probably help you search.
Thank you so much Ehbeth! I'll let you know what I find out!

I too have an old Jumbo saddle by the Schoellkopf Co. that my parents bought for me in 1958. I have been told that I am the third owner. My parents bought it from my sistor-in-laws family and they had gotten it from another family in the tiny town I was raised. It is a youth's saddle with a smaller set and has a tin or zink plated metal covering over the sturrip that is orignal. It most closely resembles #49 of the web site of the 1930 ad for the CD's.
I seen your posting with regards to the Jumbo saddle w/the elephant symbol on it. I have one in great condition and trying to find out how much it's worth. You seem like you have knowledge on this would matter and I was wondering if you would be able to direct me to a web site that could provide what this is worth?
I also have a jumbo roper that my dad bought used and gave me in 1955. It has the elephant on it and the metal on the sturrips. It has a 14 in seat.It is in good shape and I am wondering what its value is.
