Saddle up podner


“Calf roping required a saddle with a lower back saddle to be able to get off the horse easier,” Headrick said. “For ranch work, a higherback saddle is needed. Cutting horse riders need a different saddle as well.”

Headrick says he works on 30 different types of holsters and gun belts as well, all of them hand sewn and hand rubbed to bring out the smoothness and quality of the leather. Headrock does all of his work out of a small two room workshop in the back of the house.

About 20 to 25 hours a week are devoted to the saddle business on average, but he contends it is his first love and will take as much time as necessary. For more information on Old West Saddle Shop or to set up an appointment, call 817-988-5805 or visit
