ANTIQUE RESTORATION

For over thirty years, Dick Sherer has approached the restoration of antique saddles and gear as historical archeology, rather than just "fixen' up old saddles". The techniques of early makers have been studied and documented so that the value of your collectible is preserved and enhanced by the restoration process.
