I can’t remember if we stopped by Sheridan, Wyoming on the way to or back from Yellowstone. I did not take any notes on this trip and so the days are all jumbled up in my head. While in Sheridan, we went to visit Don King Western Museum. It also serves as a saddlery so we got a glimpse of the saddle maker’s shop and tools. According to the museum attendant, it takes about a month or sometimes even longer to make a saddle. It all depends on the saddle makers’ level of experience and the intricacy of the saddle’s design.
