Pack saddle

<p>Pack saddle.</p>

Pack saddle.

Saddle from the early 20th century made of wood, leather, fabric, wool and metal, used by mules (the offspring of a donkey and a horse). The exhibit is a wooden frame with two saddlebags on the sides, sitting on a wool and straw cushion with a fabric and leather cover. The yoke has a connection with Montseny through the trade of the yoke-maker, and the carrier, who carried out tasks in the forest and collected items needed by the colliers , cork-workers and wood cutters.
