James Brown - Saddle Maker, has been a consummate crafts person in this trade for over ten years. "I love it," he says, "I have to force myself to take time off".

Brown is as devoted to quality as he is to the product. "I will only use the best leather, the finest handcrafted saddle trees, the highest grade silver trim from some of the top silversmiths in North America, the best of all and any materials required.

When it comes to the craftsmanship "I take on a project slowly" he explains "and I ease my way through it. You can't rush a quality piece of work and I want to be known for my exceptional quality."

Customer Reviews;

- 100 plus star review from me!!! I am beyond happy with the headstall I had made and the survice is unreal! I ordered a custom made headstall on Tuesday and it arrived yesterday! Its exactly what I wanted!! Thank you thank you thank you!

- Working with horses and having a physical limitation is challenging but having someone you can depend on to create and adapt your equipment for your horse is priceless. James has come to my rescue on many occasions fixing adapting saddles to help keep me riding. He is the best in the business. Quality always Thank you James
