Mr Kenney was a saddler 67 Stephen Street, Melbourne (prior to that profession was a photographer) in about 1870 onwards. Prior to that he made a miniature saddle for the Intercolonial Exhibition in Melbourne in 1866.  It was detailed in a newspaper article and I was wondering if anyone on this site was a relative of his and knew of the existence of the miniature saddle?  He also took out a patent for a stirrup bar that was quick release should you become dragged by your horse. I have a copy of the application of that patent, but am more interested in the whereabouts of this beautifully decorated mini saddle.
