_Ordering & Product Information
I build pieces for a few select shows each year and occasionally have a piece or two on hand but I'm usually working on custom orders. Currently I have about a one year advanced order list.
I work almost exclusively in kangaroo leather and spare no expense in procuring the best hides available from which to hand cut my strings. I use 14k gold conchas with my brand in some of my buttons and sometimes precious stones, etc.
Snaffle bit outfits are built around Tom Balding snaffles because I believe they are the best available. If I use mecate reins I get them from Sara Hagel for the same reason. Of course, if you have a favorite bit or mecate we can use them.
To order an item you should call so we can discuss your needs. Because all my work is custom I do not have a catalog, per say. Prices will vary depending on the specifics of any given piece and can be estimated upon serious inquiry. If you think you would be interested in having me build you something, I'd encourage you to call and get your name in my order book as soon as possible. Projects are undertaken in the order in which they were recieved.
I do not take deposits until I am ready to begin your order. At that time I will require some earnest money and the balance upon delivery. Shipping and insurance will be borne by the buyer.
