I first met Karen almost 8 years ago when I was looking for a Morgan horse to purchase. She had a young gelding that I went to see at her place and we went for a ride on some trails near there. She raises some nice horses as well as putting on some great clinics and workshops at her ranch. Since that first meeting I’ve had the pleasure to go to her place when she hosted Bruce Sandifer and Jeff Derby for workshops on the Californio Bridlehorse. Karen wanted a saddle she could put lots of miles on in the mountains. This saddle has a Wade tree with 5 x 12 cantle made by Dusty Smith of WYO Saddle Trees. Karen wanted her brand on the back of the cantle as well as some celtic knots, sunflowers, and scroll work. Thanks Karen and I look forward to more workshops at your place in the future!
