"... clean it then."
When I was a kid, I loved playing in the tack shed, pretending to be riding off into the sunset around our home in Wyoming. One day while riding off into the sunset, I was distracted by how dirty one saddle was so I brought it to my dad's attention. He said "you'd better clean it then" and he carried the saddle into the house for me to clean. He explained why it was important to clean saddles, told stories about his early days riding, and stories of the grandpa I never met. My dad taught me a lot about saddles and that each piece is an individual with stories to tell.
"... breathing life back into leather. "
My name is Charity Taylor, and I am the founding member of The Saddle Salon. Since that first saddle years ago, I developed a love and passion for breathing life back into leather. Each time I clean a saddle, I feel like I'm keeping tradition alive. It's also about preserving history including your history. It's a history and story that you can leave as your legacy. However, "you have to take care of it so it can take care of you" as my mother says. You have to maintain it to be able live your story. The Saddle Salon was born to keep those stories alive and going strong.
