Tales of a Saddle Tramp

Book written by Rick Allen

This book is about how one man's life can be touched by horses and the bond that develops between horse and rider. That life is mine - "Rick Allen"; ex-navy electrician turned leatherworker turned saddler, horse rider, endurance club president, Saddlery store owner, horseback tour guide and operator of Saddletramp Horseback Tours.

What started out as a hobby, doing trail rides for fun with the club, ended up a profession; eventually teaching other people how to be tour guides.

The horse at the centre of this bonding is “Bobby” (or Bob as I now call him), a 16 hands high bay brown medium Waler. My passion started with the history of military Saddlery and horses, having done leatherwork while in the Navy, (mainly because I was too cheap to buy the accessories for archery; I decided to make them instead).

In those days I took a liking to leatherwork as a hobby, making belts, stubby holders and handbags. My best work involved hand stitching and I became quite proficient at this, which lead me to begin to repair Saddlery.
