How to make a horse saddle?

We invite you to learn how the saddlers craftsmen work. They will explain to you the process of making all leather items for the horse like, saddles, headbands (denim, English), leather leggings, chaps ...
The saddler craft is one of the few craft traditions that have remained with exquisite purity throughout the centuries in our country. This is due to the importance that the horse has always played in the Spanish culture, and especially in the Andalusian land, that these animals have enriched helping with field tasks, working with cattle and participating in many battles over the centuries. Today saddler tradition is maintained by horse riders, which still require the best materials and quality in tack for their horses. The fur and leather work is enriched with techniques brought by the Arabs, although some aspects have been improved by adapting to the efficiency that is required in our times. The saddlers first draw patterns marking on the pieces of leather, carefully chossing  the different pieces that make up the final work. Then, they cut the shapes using special scissors or knives. An finally, they sew the parts and decorate the harness using various traditional tools.

We invite you to learn from our host this centenary art and to test your skills to make a small piece of leather work that you may take as a souvenir
