The Daddle, A Western Style Saddle To Strap on Your Daddy

The Daddle from riding supply company Cashel is a soft Western style saddle that is made to strap on the backs of daddies so they can give their small children horsey-back rides in style. Daddle up, Daddies!

Retro Thing discovered the Daddle’s awesomely inspired past, the circa 1965 Daddy Saddle from Kenner. The folks at Kenner Collector actually have a Daddy Saddle in their collection.

The Amazon reviews for The Daddle are good for a laugh:

By Wandrwoman “Caped Crusader”:
Please note that this Daddle is Western Style and will not be appropriate for those trained in the English Father Riding Method whereby one holds a rein in each hand and posts the trot. If you are looking forward to father jumping, father fox hunting, father polo or daddy dressage you will not be able to use this Daddle. Western Daddle riders hold the reins with one hand, and sit the trot. The pommel or horn on this Daddle is meant to hold a lariat which is useful when roping cattle or other competing or unruly fathers.
