Howdy Mark, Great looking photos pard, you guys do it right for sure. My Great grandad came across the pond back in the 1880s from the Prestons Mill area of Glouchestershire (excuse the spelling), i've been told i have cousins there but we lost track of them after WW2. My greatgranddad made the land run here in 92 and my grandad and father as well as myself were all rodeo cowboys and ranch cowboys here on our ranch in Oklahoma. i've been doing reenacting for about 20 years and still going strong. If you and any of your pards are ever in Oklahoma you have a place to stay and a good jumping off place for alot of western history here abouts, my door is always open to you folks. Again great impressions and i look forward to seeing more pics.
Howdy Mark, Yes that's my reenacting saddle and i ride it all the time, it's my favorite. I build hope saddles for reenactors and film, i've also sold a few of my custom sombreros to folks there in GB. I was in France in 92 working in Buffalo Bills Wild West at Euro Disney, made a couple of trips across the channel. Great to see you guys doing such a great job reenacting the old west. Will sure look you up if i'm ever across the pond again amigo. Stay in touch, and keep posting those great pics. Adios for now
