My name is Josh Shoemaker, and I am married to my high school sweetheart. Our 2 daughters are in high school. I grew up eventing in Western NY, and as an event rider, I was exposed to many horses and many saddles. Growing up, we didn't worry about saddle fit. We threw any old saddle on any horse and wondered why they misbehaved sometimes or had sore backs. Now, I understand saddles so much better, and I understand their fit and how that fit affects our horses in so many different ways. Armed with this understanding, I choose to represent Custom Saddlery. I believe Custom Saddlery saddles are not only high quality, but they are also designed with a high level of understanding of their fit to the horse and the rider. Custom saddles are the nicest saddles I have ever ridden in, and I am proud to represent them.
