Saddles of the West

Saddles of the West

In another volume in his Cowboy Great series, David Stoeklein's photographs trace the historic beginnings of the Western saddle and the handiwork of some of the most famous early saddle makers. These saddles range from the simplest of designs to the most ornate and hand-tooled leather creations. Modern day saddles makers build saddles for the real cowboys of the West who use them in cutting, reining, working cow horse, rodeo, and more. The images in this collection show off the skilled craftmanship and creativity that goes into each one.
