We wanted to include a page for our friend Juan Lara, a very talented saddle maker and leather worker in Santa Ynez, CA.  Here is Juan hard at work !  

Juan with our papa Ed Field.

He learned his art from his very talented dad... he lives in the Honduras but comes back to CA for long visits and work in the shop.  Here is Juan's dad...
one of Gary's horn cap conchos on a saddle at Juan's shop.

... and here are a few samples of the work that they do; ofcourse, the silver work is done by Gary!

You can contact him at his email below

JuanalaraSaddles@gmail.com

or by calling him at (805) 637-2220

We appreciate your kind comments; his memory lives on in our work... there's not a day that goes by that we don't think about him!

I knew Ed and worked with his daughter Netty. He will be missed and Netty always spoke highly of her father. God bless him and his family.
