More Than Just a Hobby


What do bucking machines, classic cars, and western saddles have in common?

A saddle maker by the name of Link Weaver. Link has received accolades from The Art of the Horse Invitational Western Gear Makers Show and The World Leather Show, including an award for first place in the Don King Memorial Saddle Contest Open Division. Link’s focus is producing quality cowboy gear. “I would rather build a plain saddle for a real cowboy and have him say it’s the best saddle he’s ever had. That would mean more to me than building one that’s worth $30,000 to put in a show.” However, his artistic eye has drawn in many customers asking for his signature skirting accents. Link’s versatility and willingness to try new things has expanded his saddle portfolio to include everything from traditional vaquero-style saddles to flashy roping saddles. His creativity has allowed him to create such leather items as dog carrier saddle attachments and motorcycle seats. On top of that, Link’s inventive mind combined his love of rodeo and mechanics to create completely original bucking machines. Word of his bucking machine “Juice Hog” quickly spread and before he knew it, rodeo coaches and NFR competitors like Monty “Hawkeye” Henson were riding his creation. The common link with bucking machines, classic cars, and Western saddles is the creation of something valuable-or as saddlemaker Link Weaver puts it, “It’s neat to build something that didn’t exist before, and put it out into the world.” Courtesy of Heather Hamilton-Maude via The Fence Post [Paraphrased]
