Our custom, western saddles are hand made in our shop near Tofield, Alberta Canada. We use North American leather tanned by Wickett & Craig of America which carves and stamps beautifully.

Leather is a natural product and each hide has its own unique qualities, markings, wrinkles and color variables. We embrace those qualities to produce one-of-a-kind saddles. If you come into our store looking for that special saddle, we help you go through the process of selecting each of the parts that will make your saddle unique to you. We add border designs of your choice, new floral patterns and other small details that make you feel like you have a part in the making of your saddle.

We spend countless hours on floral designs and patterns for each saddle using flowers that are native to Alberta for inspiration. On each saddle, we use either solid brass or stainless steel dees and buckles. Horseshoe Brand, Montana Silver or Hansen Silver are some of the brand names. Each fender is molded for your leg and the stirrup leather has been turned to hold the twist, so you can find your stirrup every time. A good quality memory foam is used in padding the seats to help protect your bottom – no two are alike!
