Jim Taylor has spent most of his like in the company of horses of all kinds including breeds ranging from thoroughbreds, appaloosas, paints, Arabians, and quarter horses. He began with just plain trail riding to almost every western event offered in the show ring. Like most aspiring riders, Jim worked for many different trainers to learn all he could.

He has trained and shown in everything from western pleasure, trail, recitation, and hackamore and full bridle stock horses. His favorite events we always reining and working cow horse winning consistently in each of these events in his younger days.

In 1971, he purchased a western saddle and tack store in the Pacific Northwest and became very interested in providing professional quality saddles and tack to top professional western trainers and showmen of the day. This led to a full-time manufacture and repair shop with his best friend, Paul White. After selling his shop to his friend, he left for Texas in 1981 to start a new venture in saddle making and therest is history.

Jim has applied his experience in training pens and show rings to building equipment that really works.

In his words, “we build the ridability first and the pretty second”.

He rides what he makes and knows what to listen for when designing a professional quality saddle for trainers making a living in the saddle.

The saddles are handcrafted, “we use only Herman Aak #1 grade leather, real sheepskin wool skirt liner, the finest seat leathers, therapeutic memory seat foam, and all stainless steel hardware. Our tooling is the very best. All seat jockeys and fenders are glove leather lined for durability and softness, all ground seats are put in by hand, and our silver trim is handmade by our own silversmith in heavy sterling overlay. We have many different tooling styles, the ability to customise any silver trim, and three different colors of finishes: natural golden, chocolate, and chestnut”
