Welcome to WS Saddles. In my one man saddle shop I work to hand craft a saddle that will enable you and your horse to work better together while at the same time give you a unique look catered to your needs. I build ranch saddles of all styles and configurations including Wade saddles and swell forks. I also build saddles for trail riders as well as western pleasure and other riding disciplines. I take pride in involving the customer in the design process to help you get the saddle of your dreams.
Give me a call to talk about your next hand crafted saddle!
