About Alamo Saddlery Alamo Saddlery was founded in April 1996 under the direction of the late Roy E Martin. Roy had 30 years experience in the manufacturing of western saddles and tack. With his knowledge and expertise we developed high quality saddles and top of the line tack that is priced to target the middle-market.

Their dedication to the comfort of horses and the complete satisfaction of the owners that ride them is paralleled to none.
When It Comes To Bling, Beauty and Originality- Alamo Is The Industry Standard!
When someone picks out a piece of jewelry it has to be appealing to them in a fashion sense and that is the same concept we use when designing a tack piece. Not every piece is for everybody, but with the assortment from traditional to blingy…. there is definitely something for everyones taste. The goal for Alamo is to offer unique and attractive design that is made with quality leather and workmanship. Alamo Saddlery continues to lead the industry in being the trendsetter for Headstall and Breastcollar sets today.
About Our Quality Headstalls and Breastcollars...
The majority of Alamo Saddlery’s tack is made with skirting leather that is double and stitched. The colors we use most often are a Toast and Russet(lighter leather). The toast skirting is drum died which means it takes on the color all the way through the hide. The Russet skirting is not, so the underside is lighter that the top side. Our working tack is made with harness leather and this tack is single ply due to the thickness of this leather. Our factory takes time to cut our pieces of our tack from quality parts of the hides. This requires skill and knowledge of working with sides of leather because there are no two sides of leather the same.
