Saddles of the West (History, art, culture, function.) - HB
InformationPhotography by David R. Stoecklein.
In another volume in his Cowboy Gear series, David Stoecklein's photographs trace the historic beginnings of the Western saddle and the handiwork of some of the most famous early saddle makers.These saddles range from the simplest of designs to the most ornate and hand-tooled leather creations. Modern saddle makers build saddles for real cowboys of the West to use them in cutting, reining, working cow horse, rodeo, and more. The images in this collection show off the skilled craftmanship and creativity that goes into each rope.
