We have been taught the art of custom saddle building from a craftsman in Idaho, in an area where they rode for a living & needed a saddle that was comfortable & secure for all day riding. The ground seat is the “Classic Layer & Shave” method. The trees are rawhide covered.
We do semi-custom saddles, which we try to keep in stock. Working cowboy tack, chaps, chinks, custom size mohair cinch. The felt pads that we sell, we cut & manufacture. Our reins come from Herman Oak Leather Company in St. Louis Missouri where the harness leather is made the old fashioned way. The extra heavy sides are hand cut, edged, & hand rubbed, & paired. As with all animals, a hide grows naturally, so the weighted ends which is from the neck, will vary in size.
