Win A Legendary Bohlin Saddle And Contribute To Kids In Need!

January 9, 2018

World renowned Saddle Maker to the Stars, Edward 

Bohlin, came to Hollywood in the 1920’s from Cody,

Wyoming, where he had a saddle shop. At the urging of

legendary cowboy star, Tom Mix, Bohlin made the move

and soon was making custom silver-mounted saddles

for most of the Hollywood cowboy stars, such as Roy

Rogers, The Lone Ranger and Hopalong Cassidy. Two of

his earliest customers were fabulous cowboy star Buck

Jones and his wife. Their magnificent saddles can be

seen on display at the world-famous Autry Museum of

the American West in Los Angeles. Bohlin’s elaborate

personal silver mounted saddle along with many others

are also on display there. Friend of the foundation and

former curator of the Autry Museum, James Nottage,

wrote the book Saddle Maker to the Stars.


Happy Trails Children’s Foundation was fortunate to

acquire a genuine Bohlin silver mounted saddle for our

saddle drawing this year. This saddle was made in the

1940’s and has been gently used. It is (along with any and

all Bohlin made items) highly collectible. This saddle is

somewhat similar to one Bohlin made for cowboy star

Tim Holt. It is beautifully hand carved, two toned with

sterling silver diamonds and spots. It has round skirts,

single rigging and leather covered stirrups with more

silver diamonds and spots. This outfit is complete with a

matching bridle, bit, reins, and saddle blanket.


You don’t have to own a horse to enjoy this saddle. It

comes with its own horse, a custom-deluxe saddle stand

crafted by Master Woodworker, Terry Kirk. A Bohlin

saddle is the world’s greatest conversation piece and will

look great in your living room, den, man-cave, office or



Tickets are only $10 each or 11 tickets for $100.

Proceeds from the sale of tickets go to benefit the abused

children served by the foundation. The drawing for this

saddle will be held on Saturday night, May 19, 2018. YOU
