About Us

David Bartlett, owner of Traditional Rawhide Braiders, has been a life long horse enthusiast with great interest in the art of braided vaquero rawhide tack. Through his travels, he has met some of the finest artisans who have been braiding as their vocation for several generations. David teamed up with a variety of the finest braiding families in creating quality functional braided artwork for our western horse market. 

Since 1997, Traditional Rawhide Braiders has offered high quality products to the western horse market. We braid vaquero, buckaroo, and performance horse tack. Some of our products are considered to be collectible museum quality and can be found on display at the world famous "Don King Western Museum" in Sheridan, Wyoming. You can find our products at the top tack and saddle shops in the United States and International countries. 

Our enthusiasm for "usable art" influenced us to begin sharing these products within the United States. What started as a hobby, became a business. We thank all our loyal customers for our success!
