Saddle Shop


** The Saddle Shop is temporarily closed from May 20, 2016 until Mid-July, 2016. Uncle Pete had to go see a man about a horse. 🙂

Come visit our Paniolo Heritage Center Saddle Shop, Tuesdays through Saturdays, from 9:30am to 2:00pm (sometimes later in the afternoon). Talk story with Master Saddle Maker, Pete Gorrell, who is a wealth of information about horsemanship and the fine artisan craft of saddle making.

Uncle Pete does custom orders and has a beautiful collection of leather goods for sale too. If you’re interested in some custom work by a master craftsman, contact Uncle Pete at:
