In 1979, he attended and graduated from Western saddle making school. While making saddles for a prominent western store, he was introduced to English saddles where he learned to fit and flock them for a better fit for the horse. This started a new career and so he began his own business of fitting, flocking and sales of a custom designed dressage saddle.*Huge thanks go to Mike for his generous donation! Mike Corcoran grew up in the horse business, living and working on quarter horse and paint ranches. He’s shown horses in many disciplines.

When western dressage began, a light bulb moment happened, and he knew he could design a western saddle to feel and position a rider as close to a traditional dressage saddle as possible.

Now his business combines both worlds, fitting horses, and riders to well fitted and proper position saddles.
