"Old fashioned craftsmanship, quality, workmanship, and a touch of nostalgia"



Two Week Vacation Program

This program is more relaxed than the full program that is designed for someone who wishes to open up his or her own shop. You will not need to do any studying on saddle making as in the full program.

The price for the vacation program is $3000. This includes all the materials needed to finish your saddle and breast collar as well as accommodations for one. We have a rustic little cabin near to the saddle shop for you to stay in and your meals will be with us. This is included in the price of the vacation program.

Note: We now take Visa, Master Card, American Express as well as debit card.

This program is usually one on one with Brian same as the full program. We occasionally take 2 students at a time; couples, siblings etc but prefer to work with one so that you get more personal attention.

Half of the cost of the program is required as a deposit to reserve the time slot that you would like. Until this deposit is paid, your space is not held for you. We always book on a first come first serve basis. This is an educational and relaxing way to spend 2 weeks. You never know, you might return to take the full program to become your own boss in your own saddle shop.

Flights and rental cars are available from Cranbrook, 35 miles away. For more information on how to get here, please e-mail us: info@saddleshop.ca

Who is the Vacation Program For?

The vacation program is primarily designed for two types of students:

  1. Students who already have other careers, and would like a chance to get away from their busy schedules for two weeks to live an authentic western lifestyle and learn a valuable craft.
  2. Students who are interested in the full program and want to see if this is something that they are interested in without having to commit to the full program.

We are Flexible!

Above all else, we are flexible. We want you to enjoy yourself as much as possible while you learn to make western style saddles.

We look forward to seeing you here!
