Dusty Smith cuts out pieces for a saddletree at his shop east of Buffalo. Smith has been making custom saddles for 12 years and saddletrees for three. Smith makes about a dozen custom saddles each year along with about 100 saddletrees. His waitlist is months long, but his customers prize the quality construction and craftsmanship.
