Hi, thanks for visiting. My name is Ellen Replogle. I live on a small farm in Phillipsburg, MO. Horses, sewing and quilting have been passions of mine for a very long time and now leather work is at the top of that list. I love the endless possibilities that working with leather has to offer not to mention the smell of leather is pretty good too! Designing tooling patterns for a saddle fender or a custom leather belt or a custom pair of show chaps is what I enjoy the most and can get lost for hours with pencil and paper.

Please contact me if you would like to place an order for any one of the items made or are in need of custom work such as chaps, chinks, headstall or spur straps. If you prefer to make your own chaps but need the yokes  I can do that as well.

Recently I attended The Montana Horseman Saddle Building School in Belgrade, Montana and learned to build saddles from Dale Moore who has been building saddles and teaching others for many, many years. It was an honor and a privilege to learn from him first-hand and proudly ride in the saddle I built there! After I came home I  began immediately to build my second saddle for my sister, Beth. I built everything from the horn to the fenders to the back jockey at least four times trying to perfect each part as I went. My third saddle is going together like a dream! All the hard work making mistakes and learning while by myself is now paying off! I will post it as soon I get it done.
