I can custom make whatever you need, as well as repair and restore your old favorite saddle, tack and equipment.
My wife and I live in a small agricultural area outside of South Hill, VA called Union Level. Our farm has three Tennessee Walking Horses, five English Pointers, two Pugs and a farm dog and mule that we rescued, as well as a dozen chickens; quail and homing pigeons that we use to train our English Pointers. The Pointers we have now are a cross between two great blood lines, Chasehill Bud and Sugarknoll Warpaint, the best of the north and south!

for up to 6 guests at a time including kennel space and horse stalls.
