I’m trying to get into rope braiding with horsehair and leather but can’t find anyone in my area to help me get started. Can you help me?
Garden City, Idaho
I called an old friend, Len Albright, who’s been in the saddle making business and knows a lot about braiding. He suggests you contact: Hitching Post Supply, 111 West Main St., Monroe, WA 98272 or call 360-805-1673. To paraphrase my idol, Will Rogers: Braiding ropes is a good skill to have ’cause if you mess it up you can always use the thing to hang yourself.
