Stunning Saddles Sep 13, 2007
WOW! The author/photographer, David Stoecklin, obviously savours his subject, it shows on every page - from rodeo gear to working ranch saddle, prized collectibles & stunning parade outfits, every picture is beautifully composed.
There are superbly detailed pictures of saddle tooling (both plain & ornate), fabulous silverwear, breastplates & tapaderos, right through to downright dirty/dusty functional working gear.
I bought this book as a reference for my saddler, as I'm having an "old timer" made for my Appaloosas - this book has supplied me with stunning, detailed pictures to ensure my saddle is true to type in it's colour, tooling & overall finish (aside from my saddler's own wonderful input!).
I highly recommend it as a reference guide to saddles past & present, it is a wonderful tribute to the fine art of western saddles by a man who knows his stuff & loves his work!
