Inside Hubbard Museum of the American West

1880 Child's hearse with round beveled
glass. Originally painted white with
gold striping. Designed to be driven
by a coachmen (chauffeur).
Filled with a large assortment of buggies, carts, surreys and memorabilia, the museum was fascinating. Our docent was very knowledgeable, telling us so many anecdotes and making this stop on Day 2 of our New Mexico tour a very special memory.

Nancy Evans always finds her horse

Mexican tooled saddle circa 1880 with silver ornamentation.
This saddle retains many of the features of a traditional vaquero
saddle: high cantle and high horn; and stirrups that caused the
rider to sit in a forward position.
