Saddle Making In The Shop!

 Howdy all,
So heres how we do it at Dusty Chaps Leather.
It all starts with a custom saddle tree. (thats the wood part under the leather)

The Start of The Vaquero Saddle
Then comes the magic !

We start doing our thing. Just watch.

The ground seat is in and the horn is covered. The gullet cover is in place.
(thats the under side of the fork)

The Swell is covered and the horn edged off.
Looking good Right?

The Cantle is done and look at those pretty Horses!
The back Jockeys are all but done.

(Cantle the back part of the seat you got it)

(Jockeys are the back cover going behind the cantle)
