Whether it’s saddles, belts, or other leather goods, artist Don Gonzales sells to cowboys, college students, and everyone in between. Don’s business, DG Saddlery, makes high-end custom saddles in Bryan, Texas. With a one year waiting list, Don’s saddles are made by hand, one at a time, and are covered in Don’s hand-tooled decorative touches. Join us as we talk to Don about:

  • His early aspirations to be a veterinarian
  • Leather as a medium for art
  • How a hobby became a side business became a full-time career
  • Finding direction as a maker and as a business
