Our Family Legacy
Four decades ago, my father’s saddle shop established a respected, time-honored legacy of Parrish saddlemakers.
As a young teen, I worked many long, summer days by his side, learning the ins-and-outs of saddlery. Since his passing, I’ve carried on the family trade, creating my own shop, The Saddle Guy, in 2005.

"The quality is top-notch!"
I’m very pleased with all my dealings with Kevin. The quality is top-notch; my tack is well designed and very durable. Thanks!
"Everywhere I go, people comment on how beautiful it is."
Kevin made a beautiful bridle and breast strap for me in black with silver conchos. Everywhere I go, people comment on how beautiful it is. It truly stands out on my blue roan.
"The Most Comfortable Saddle I Have Ever Ridden"
I am very pleased with my trooper saddle that you built for me. It is now starting to relax down and break in. It is the most comfortable saddle I have ever ridden.

"One of the Best Saddles Produced Today"
He has taken the best of both worlds to create a saddle that is custom-made with attributes of mass production. There is no doubt in my mind that Kevin Parrish loves what he does and cares enough about quality that he makes one of the best saddles produced today.
"Don’t See How You Could Ask for More."
Thanks….I know it will get even better as it breaks in and I will let you know.
"Thank You for a Superb Job!"
"The Saddle is Dreamy!!!"
Kevin, the saddle is dreamy!!!! I love, love it… Probably one of the most comfortable saddles I’ve sat in and so far no protest from my horses. My husband rode it too and loved it. I am very happy with my saddle, workmanship and customer service.
"I love your work!"

About The Saddle Guy
I’m Kevin Parrish, but most people know me as The Saddle Guy. Some of my earliest memories are of the rhythmic pounding of my father’s mallet, the smell of old leather and horse sweat, and the feel of a new piece of fine-made tack. While most boys were playing with toy trucks under the kitchen table, I was learning life lessons, fixing saddles, and developing a passion for making fine, handcrafted leather goods.
I’ve spent nearly 30 years learning and refining techniques to build the finest possible catalog of saddles and tack for field and trail. Whether I’m building your dream saddle or reviving an old favorite, your satisfaction is my top priority.
I’ve listed some of my most popular items above, but visit the shop for a complete list. Interested in some custom work? Or just have a question? Contact me, and let me know how I can help. Thank you for taking your time to visit my site.
