They Saddled the West
The great American cattle drives
through the 1800's brought about a necessary change
in the cowboys requirements of saddlery and associated
Visalia, Meanea, Taylor, Marden, Coggshall
and countless others,
Saddle makers that changed the western saddle
from a very rudimentary contraption into a work of useful,
robust and in some cases a magnificent art to be treasured
and the greatest tool a cowboy could possibly ever own.
Men who truly " Saddled the West"
To own and ride in a new "Old Timer" is to go
back to a time when the cowboy was truly king of the range
and his saddle, his throne.
Our saddles today are built on finer trees
with better leather and hardware than yesteryear.
Our carving techniques have also evolved so
the modern day built saddle is superior in most every
material way and we can only make an effort to emulate the
incredible feeling it gives to the person that is
fortunate enough to experience such a saddle and to ride
with pride as in that golden time of grand old American
