Thank you for visiting. If you are a returning client I’m happy to see that you’ve decided to stop by again. If you are a new visitor I would like you to feel comfortable in dealing with a craftsman new to you; one that is, perhaps, hundreds of miles from your home or stable.
Mine is a custom leather shop specializing in custom English saddles and tack, as well as saddlery repairs. I have been providing riders with these services for over forty years, the first seven of which were spent in apprenticeship to an elderly German craftsman. I have worked at one of the midwest’s largest saddleries and with a myriad of riders, trainers and equines in solving their tack problems. All riding disciplines have been represented in the shop: eventing, dressage, polo, hunter-jumper, saddle seat, endurance and others. I am confident that I can provide you with the highest quality in both materials and workmanship. In order that you share this confidence I guarantee your complete satisfaction with all work done in my shop.
If you have a question or wish to discuss a particular tack problem or a custom English saddle please phone me at 406-449-7231, 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Mountain Standard Time or email me.
Thank you for your interest.
