"The second best place to set your saddle!"

                                                    CELEBRATING 10 YEARS                                                                  OF ADDING ART AND DESIGN TO THE HUMBLE SADDLE STAND! 

It all started with gifting a custom stand to a local horse show.  The horse owners kept asking "WHERE can I get one like that?"  And thus was born a cottage industry where I work out of my home--and they are still asking!  Looking back on all the different designs over the years, they are truly one of a kind!

Here are some of the many stands that have been created over the years. These have sold but if you see a design you like, contact me about making one similar to it. You can see more recent ones on FB Susan's Saddle Stands.

All art is original art and can range from simple silhouettes to detailed full color paintings.

Saddle stands can be ordered with a plain wood top or covered. There are several cover styles ranging from Navajo saddle blankets to faux leather upholstery.

Old horse shoes, fringe, conchos, repurposed horse tack and leather goods are utilized in many of the saddle stand designs.

Saddle stands can be designed with a theme such as barrel racing or roping.

<----This one was ordered to commemorate a deceased parent whose passion was barrel racing. The client had only an old black and white photo from which to paint the portrait. She gave the finished stand to her granny for Christmas and the response was tears of joy.
