Saddle Making School

Applications are now open for 2025 (2024 sold out) - Saddle Making School 

This course is for those who have always wanted to try their hand at making their own saddle. 

This is not a group setting, or class, this is 1:1 tuition with Dave.  The course is flexible (as far as dates) but limited in how many a year we offer this to,  and generally you would be needing to invest in 7 - 10 solid days to complete your saddle.

You can choose from Western stock to Wade saddle, we order the trees specifically for your needs. 

You receive -

  • A complete set of patterns for your choice of saddle (wade/stock)
  • Video series on the steps involved in creating your own saddle
  • 1:1 tuition and guidance throughout the whole process
  • Wholesale goods available on all aspects of saddle making available if you choose to further your field
  • At the completion of the course you take home the experience, the knowledge and the saddle you have made under Dave's guidance.
  • The charge for successful applicants is $7500

Accommodation can be arranged at extra cost.
