I've stumbled upon a couple of places before where they teach you to make saddles and I think at some point in my life, I would love to do that. I ride Western and I love the tooling in (most) saddles. I also loveeee the smell of leather and enjoy work much more if I'm working with my hands and keeping them busy.
If I could ever get the money to go to one of the "schools" (there's one in Montana that I know of, which isn't that far from me), I want to know if I'd like it or even be good at it. It'd be such a cool job to work for someone, making saddles. Or even for a company doing it. Even more so: Always custom saddles you've made yourself.
Has anyone else ever done a saddlemaking "school"? Or at least think it would be a fantastic job?
