We build custom saddles for professional horseman and wrangler.

Our saddles are designed to fit comfortably and be functional, while lasting a lifetime of riding. Find out why our saddles are preferred.


At the rocking HR Ranch, we raise quality quarter horses to be used in the professional arena and ranch work.

We also have a saddle shop, where we build custom saddles for professional horseman and wranglers, upon request.

Our ranch is located near Frenchtown, 6 miles west of Missoula, Montana.


The saddles are designed for comfort and function. They are built on a wade style tree from John Stosich, Rick Reed, Ben Swanke and Warren Wright. We use top-grade leather from the Herman Oak leather company. Most of the hardware comes from Weather leather. The saddles are typically rounded skirts with twisted stirrups (Hamley twist). 12 ounce leveled leather is used in an attempt to keep the saddle around 35 pounds. A padded inlaid seat can be customized upon request. Most saddles are stamped or carved. The Sheridan flower design is most frequently used. We look forward to building a saddle for you and hope that it is the best saddle you ever own. Take your time and look through some of our saddle work.


Our bloodlines include Smart Little Lena, Dual Pep, Doc O Lena, Skipper W, Bob Acre Doc, High Brow Cat, Metallic Cat, Freckles Playboy, Shining Sparks, and Trashadeous. The horses are imprinted at birth and exposed to children, dogs and a lot of activity at an early age. We work on halter breaking, leading, trailer loading and feet care as yearlings.
