10.  1837, near side. Page 22 staples are attached at both pommel and cantle, to which valise, wallet, holsters, blanket, and cloak were attached for field service. The holster and bag, or pouch, combination, shown in Figure 9, was designed to carry the pistol in the left holster and extra horseshoes, nails, currycomb, and brush in the right-hand pouch, although some holster sets had identical holsters on each side, even though regulations specified that shoes, nails, and grooming tools were to be carried in the right holster.

The tree itself is covered with wet rawhide, just as the Grimsley and Hope are, and the staples, rings, and pommel and cantle mortises are little differenteven to the brass escutcheons at the mortises. Even the stirrups on the McClellan are the same as those on the modified Campbell, with the addition of leather hoods. Of course, there are obvious differences between the McClellan and the other saddlesthe absence of a leather covering on the seat and bars; a single, different-shaped skirt under the quarter strapsan obvious measure of economy, eliminating the necessity for additional leather for seat and an underskirt, since the McClellan's single skirt protects the horse from the rigging and the rider's legs from horse sweat.

It is Page 64 strange to me that no military writer has seen through this bit of subterfuge on McClellan's part and revealed the true source of the McClellan design. Close examination of the illustrations of the Grimsley saddle, the Campbell saddle, the Hope saddle, and the first McClellan saddle reveals that the McClellan saddle incorporates the major features of the Grimsley, the Campbell, and the Hope. McClellan's tree is shaped almost exactly like the Campbell tree as modified for issue to the First and the Second Cavalry for field trial and the Hope tree.
