There were and are many saddle shops that make saddles for tack shops under license to the tack shop. Texas is a meca for saddle makers so having shop make a vanity brand made for a tack shop is certainly not unheard of and a good possibility for your saddle.

Texas is loaded with big-name and lesser known saddlers. There is a chance that whoever made your saddle is no longer in the business of saddle-making. What Iride mentioned is also accurate - some tack shops order saddle from makers specifically for their shops.

Or perhaps the original latigo holder was damaged and this is a replacement from a repair shop of sorts. Though that seems unlikely.

Best of luck finding our more about it.

I have a VERY similar western saddle with the same Texas Longhorn stamp. Same metal/leather twist on the pommel and cantle. My saddle was purchased in the heart of Texas at a western store by my mother in the early 1970's and Im digging through years of receipts. The particular saddle I have is not hand made, however it is like having the Eddie Bauer Eddition of western saddles!! When she purchased the saddle she said there were at least 20 on the showroom floor each with a different twist and custom pieces could be added. Mom says the saddles were simply known as The Longhorns back then!! Hope that helps!!

Please help me identify the maker's mark on my saddle. It is a capital "W" with diamond shapes within the outline of the W and has a saddle in the center of the W. Thanks much.

Charmon, you would probably have better luck creating your own thread and including pictures of the mark.
