Frank and Jim believe the saddle
should fit the horse first then the rider. We make saddles the working
cowboy can use everyday, all day and still enjoy the work. Our saddles
are so comfortable you can ride in one all day long and go dancing that
Frank lives near Cedar City, Utah. He has been making custom saddles,
braiding rawhide and kangaroo for 6 years under the instruction of
master saddle maker James "Jim" Kelly.
