How We Got Started - Born in Montana. Most vivid memory was the chuck wagon races at the Calgary Stampede when I was 5. Raised in West Texas in parents full line western store. Went to Texas state finals in high school sales contest selling a Tex Tan saddle, headstall and breastcollar. My father always told me...."Our superior service is the #1 we offer". My mom had her sewing machine in the stores backroom. Full service. Our western heritage runs deep. I was raised doing business with the pioneers of this business. Tony lama Jr., Earnest and Martin Hochester, Sam lucchese, Buddy Shepler, Ms. Enid Justin, Harry Burr and many more. This is a family business!!!!!!!!!!
