About Alamo Saddlery:
Alamo Saddlery was founded in April 1996 under the direction of the late Roy E. Martin and owned by Leisha Ashley. Roy had 30 years of experience in the manufacturing of western saddles and tack. With his knowledge and expertise, they developed high-quality tack and saddles. In the early 2000s Alamo connected with a saddle tree manufacturer, Hadlock & Fox, who is a top saddle tree maker in the western industry today. Hadlock & Fox built tree for the Alamo brand and eventually purchased the brand in 2017. Today the Alamo brand is owned by Leonel Martinez and is under the direction of his oldest daughter Leigh Martin.
Over the years, the western industry has welcomed Alamo. It began with bling on tack and has grown to all levels of high-quality leather products for the western industry. Alamo believes that fit and function come first, then comes fashion. There is no point in looking good if it doesn't feel good on, for both rider and horse. They are their own manufacturer, building trust with their saddle brand to ensure their customers know they are in good hands.
In 2018 Alamo decided on expanding outside of the arena, offering high-quality leather accessories, whether it be from a handmade 100% genuine leather belt, handbag, briefcase, laptop case and everything else in between, Alamo promises their customers will find something one-of-a-kind to go with their western wardrobe. They took it a bit further and offer premium Triple L silver in buckles and silver accessories as well, making Alamo a one-stop shop for all things leather and silver!
Custom orders are one of the brand's specialties, combining customers' ideas with Alamo's style, high-quality products and skill to create an item that is unique but also comes with a one-of-a-kind experience, that can only be found at Alamo! Alamo Saddlery is a family-owned and operated company that believes that with great faith, determination and hard work anything is possible.
