Spanish tack. Traditional spanish saddles, alta escuela and doma vaquera, handmade in Andalusia by a master craftsman. Vaquero saddles to measure. Spanish and portuguese bridles, with all the correct details and accessories.
Spanish tack is an art form. The saddlemakers take pride in their work, and the owners appreciate the beauty as much as the practicality.
Craftsmen make tack by hand, using the leather of Spain and the skills of generations. This is leatherwork that is made to last. A vaquero saddle - used every day in the country - can easily last 20 years.
Ramón is a guarnicionero. He makes spanish, portuguese and vaquero saddles, and other traditional tack, by hand.
A variety of Spanish tack, in various stages of completion, fills Ramón’s workshop. Saddles could include
|Silla Vaquera||Silla Española Alta Escuela||Silla Amazona||Silla Mixta|
|Vaquero saddle||Classic spanish saddle||Spanish side saddle||Mixed a combination of vaquero and the portuguese|
Everything here is crafted in the traditional manner, and Ramóns spanish tack - vaquero saddles, harnesses and leatherwork - is in demand across Spain.
Vaquero saddles, hand-decorated bridles, leatherwork, traditional Spanish dress -
we stop in to the saddlemaking workshop often, and well talk about whatevers being made here.
There is no hurry around Ramón. He works with patience and precision, chatting easily, pausing occasionally to emphasise a point. His hands move with the assurance of familiarity across the leather as he measures and cuts.
We are following work that he is doing as he makes a silla vaquera andaluza pura - his precise description
of a genuine andalusian vaquero saddle.
