Making tack for yourself is one thing but to sell to others really isn't financially feasible. The manufacturers have equipment that can cut many pieces at a time and get volume discounts on leather that we can't hope to get even at wholesale. There are also so many saddlemakers that for many it's not the day job, plus trying to compete against the manufacturers. Knowing how to make a saddle is good as it's needed to do all types of saddle repair.
