I have been weaving saddle blankets since I moved to Carlin, Nevada in 1986. My blanket designs are influenced by the colors of the high desert and the traditions of the Navajo. I have exhibited at the Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Elko, Nevada and the National Cowboy Symposium and Celebration in Lubbock, Texas. Two of my saddle blankets toured Nevada with the juried fiber arts show "A Common Thread." My variation of the Diamond Twill saddle blanket was featured on the cover of the show's program.
This selection of photos represents saddle blankets I have made over the past decades. Each blanket is made from 100% wool warp and weft. Wool is long lasting, resilient, breathes and provides needed padding for the hard working rider and horse. They are substantial: tightly woven at 60 ends per inch and weigh approximately 5 pounds. My standard double-fold blanket is 33"x66". Contact me for more information, pricing, and availability.
