Accessories for the rider

Accessories are made to aid the rider in making their rides more enjoyable, safer or are necessary for work.  To make your ride more enjoyable, you would add such items as a water bottle holder.  Because you never know what kind of weather you may be setting off into, a cantle bag would hold such things as your rain slicker, matches, or a set of hobbles. If you have something that you are specifically looking for in those categories, contact us (780) 662-4980 or email us to discuss your needs. 

Spur straps

Spur Straps

When choosing your spur straps, they should be as unique as you are. Their function is to hold your spurs in place. They should be as decorated or plain as you want them to be. That is what we are here to do for you.

Bucking Rolls & Safety Straps

Bucking Rolls

Bucking rolls are for the slick fork or A-fork saddle and are sized in medium or large. They are made of various leathers and firmness and may be wool or foam stuffed. Bucking rolls are attached under the slotted concho or a washer and screw on the side of the saddle. In our design, there is a buckle in the center to tighten. 

A Cowboy Night Latch

A Night Latch is a safety strap attached to a saddle to help the rider hold on and stay on a bucking or fast turning horse.  This contraption was used as part of old-time traditional cowboy bronc gear and can still come in handy. Today it is still called the night latch or “holy crap” handle, or comes by other names! The James Built Saddlery version buckles around the swell and can be placed either side of the horn for whichever hand you are most likely to use in those highly bouncy situations!

Other accessories for the rider

Soft deer or elk hide riding gloves are just what you need for cooler days or a little rough work.
