Overview

The gear illustrated and described in this book is made of rawhide. However, leather thongs and plastic string can be worked in the same manner. The illustrations are clear, and detailed drawings show from beginning to end how to make the articles of gear the horseman uses to "work or show" his horse to best advantage. Bridles, hackamores, hobbles, reins, reatas, quirts, and riding crops are just a few of the articles that can be made by following the illustrations and instructions.

Included in the volume is a section titled "How to Make a Western Saddle", by Lee M. Rice. He explains each step in making a western saddle, with text and drawings.

I made my first and only saddle from info in this book.It does not give patterns but if you know saddles it will help you build one.My saddle turned out great.

The book advertised was not the book I received. The main reason for ordering this book was to learn about making saddles, but in the book I received it has nothing about making saddles as advertised.
