Brad Cooper began working leather at age 12 and started his apprenticeship in saddlery with Wendy Allen during his sophomore year in high school. After learning the cutting saddle trade Cooper began making saddles for other disciplines including roping, reining and barrel racing. Cooper is credited with having built over 600 saddles and has recently set up his shop in Buellton (900 McMurray Rd. Unit 1 Buellton, CA 93427).
Featured Work: Brads leather work has been featured in the Leather Crafters & Saddlers Journal ( May/June Vol. 22 ) and Texas Parks and Wildlife magazine (cover article December 2001 ). The pics below were hand tooled by Brad and are a great example of what can be achieved with the skills you'll learn in this class.
