On Saddle Back: John Herron Saddle Maker Chino Valley AZ (Owen Cattle Brand on Seat)

Bill custom ordered this saddle in 2012 and it is the one he used on his final Cowboy Artists of America trail ride held in 2013 on the famous 6666’s ranch in Guthrie, Texas. Bill passed just three weeks later, after he and the other CAA members broke camp at the historic Texas ranch.
The saddle and accessories are used and their condition is commensurate with their age.
