Does anyone know about saddles carrying the Buford Saddlery maker's mark?
The saddle I have I know was bought new in 1985. It's absolutely gorgeous! Heavily tooled, mint condition...the leather is even still soft and smells good. It's a honey colored saddle with an association tree. The latigo keeper says "Buford Saddlery", there's a big fancy B.S. In the middle, and underneath it says "Buford, Ga" and the number under that is 1734.
The only thing I can seem to figure out is that this is the name of a larger company...like a distributor, but maybe not necessarily a maker. This thing is REALLY well built, so somebody must have known what they were doing.
I'll post pics if you need them.
