<<Looks like the old cavalry style english saddles>>

I'm with Tracy. I remember these saddles being referred to as "Officers saddles," and they were fairly common forty years ago at riding academies. The "runners" were supposed to equalize the pressure from the saddle and help prevent sore backs. Don't know whether that works or not, but it may be true.
