Wendy Allen - The First Lady of Saddle Making
I Would Be Honored To Make One For You!
Wendy Allen, saddle maker, is known for her hand made western saddles. Her clients span a broad range of horsemen from ranchers to cutting horse competitors to reining horse enthusiasts, roping and working cow horse and every kind of performance and working horse rider and horse lover. She might be called the Annie Oakley of western craft and has tooled and carved her way into Equine history. Wendy's love for leather crafting came as a by-product of her passion for horses. At age 7, her father gave her a leather kit to repair her tack, and this began a career that would bring her international acclaim. While repairing old saddles Wendy discovered the genius of old saddle makers. The most enduring saddles were those created with meticulous attention to detail. After 25 years of saddle making she has earned herself the reputation of her one of a kind saddles, known for her comfortable seat on her saddles and the good feel they have, custom made hardware and conchos and one of a kind hand tooling, saddles made with quality leather that lasts over a lifetime.
Wendy has notched herself a place in western history with her talent and love for saddle making. Her knowledge of a horse and human's anatomy gives her ability to shape a saddle to fit horse and rider to make them one in the show ring, ranch or the trails. Some have called her a true Buffalo Gal and other say she is an artist of her trade but one thing stands out when talking to her clients: her saddles are a gift to those who ride.
