Chris Wiley began working with leather as a hobby many years ago. In 1991, that hobby became a business, making custom leather goods and doing repairs. With his passion for horses and western heritage, building a saddle seemed a must. After studying saddle construction for several years, Chris built his first saddle and from there, a new love was born. In 1995, CW Wiley produced his first custom saddle.
All of CW's saddles are constructed using the finest skirting leathers, stainless steel hardware and natural bark-tanned shearling. Saddles are assembled on quality bull-hide covered wooden trees and built with an all-leather ground seat for more flexibility and comfort. From his first saddle to his latest creations, each saddle is built one at a time to maintain quality and excellence in handcraftsmanship.Vendor of the Year-2008 VRHA
