Art of the Western Saddle Exhibit
There’s a wonderful exhibit at the AQHA Hall of Fame in Amarillo Texas that’s coming to a close at the end of July. If you’re going to be anywhere close to Texas, you’ll want to make the detour to check it out.
The exhibit is called “Art of the Western Saddle: A Celebration of Design, Style and Grace.”Â The exhibits looks specifically at the silver saddles and the wonderful artistry of the saddle silversmiths.
If you can’t make it to the exhibit you don’t have to miss out. The AQHA has published what they call a catalog, but it’s much more than that. It’s 60 pages of wonderful history with stunning photographs and well-researched history about the genre and each saddle showcased.
A limited number of the catalogs are available for sale, but you can download a PDF version for free.
