hand crafted custom tack | Made in Texas by horsemen!
NEW OWNERS, Same GREAT QUALITY, but a larger product offering!
Elite Custom Saddles was established in June 2009 in the heart of horse country, Tioga, Texas, by Raymond Blanco Sr. Elite was started to provide the best handmade quality in saddles and tack. Ray offers a lifetime of experience building western saddles and was the master saddle maker for the Silver Mesa Saddle Company for nearly 20 years.
In 2016 Jon and Joslyn Carpenter acquired Elite Custom Saddles and have expanded the business even further. Ray Sr remains with the company and the overall quality and craftsmanship will remain exemplary.
Moving forward, look for a greater volume and variety of saddles, tack, purses, leather goods, chaps and jewelry. We offer a beautiful line of custom beadwork belts and dog collars, along with a huge selection of belt buckles. A retail line is available, as well as a line of trophy tack and custom award saddles!
Look for exciting products being released every month!
