Summary Good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes This horse has been riden alot. The saddles leather is really worn, and the gold decrative spots around its borders and on its strap, are almost gone. The most ware upon the horse is actually its bridle. The reins are the most worn, most of the decorative paint is gone.
