The student works on saddles, harness, halters, belts, and almost any repairs that come into the shop. If it is buildable or fixable, we try to do it. Carving and stamping is taught as well as some basic braiding.

What will I need to buy when I complete the program?
All tools are supplied for use by the student while they are in school but they will have to purchase their own tools after school is completed. A good list of where and how to obtain tools and supplies will be available to them. We also have a list of our suppliers where we purchase for the shop.
