Rudy Mudra, Master Saddlemaker
Rudy Mudra was talented and fun-loving. He wove his way through the remarkable changes to saddlemaking that occurred between 1879 and 1966. As the world changed from a horse powered to a machine powered society, he followed saddlemaking work through some of the most famous shops in the west: Buckstaffs, Askews, Miles City Saddlery, Furstnows, Connolys, Ernst, before finally owning his own shop, Rudy Mudra's Saddle Shop in Sheridan, Wyoming. This is the story of the remarkable life lived by an extraordinarily skilled and talented man.
