There is a section on making saddles, but it's a rather brief overview and isn't of much use if you are actually planning on making a saddle (even a miniature one).
Overall, it's a great reference book for your library on western braided tack, and I'd definitely recommend it.
I bought it, in 1980, and used the devil out of it... I was starting out, and at that
time, could do simple things, and was making reins and other forms of headgear,
but needed more..
My Original purchase was another Bruce Grant publication... Encyclpedia of Rawhide
and Leather braiding.... This is an advanced, instructional series....and centered on
CowBoy Horse Gear, hence the "title"...
I guess, that the fact that I've bought it again, is a demonstration of my being
content with it.... I lost my other copy in a house fire, along with the others..
Obviously, this is a replacement... Easy to understand, as long as you read, and
take your time... Braiding and weaving, leather isn't something you can buy a
book for, and then, forget about it... Much like some do, with the average set of
I will learn something, and unless I do it, regularly, I will be back for referral...
because, multiple strings, are difficult, to say the least... once you get where
you are comfortable, there is a lesser need to refer to it...
All I can say is, I have made numerous projects, and I recommend this as one book to have.....
I hope I've helped someone....
