Saddle maker crafts leather to make a good ride for man and horse
PULLTIGHT -- Kelly Collom fell in love with horses while riding with his father when he was knee high to a grasshopper. It was to be 20 more years before he owned his own horse at the age of 24.
Today, he painstakingly crafts custom saddles from his shop, Horse Corner Saddles, on his 46-acre farm in the Pulltight community on Chicken Road between Doaks Crossroads and Bairds Mill. The saddles are built to be practical, beautiful and enduring.
“What makes me do it? I enjoy it. It’s artistic,” Collom said “What I do is fit the horse, the rider and the job. When I accomplish this, I’m helping all three.”
