Does anyone know of a good tack repair person/place in the St. Louis area? I have a saddle that needs serious leather work on the seat. Will have to replace the top leather. Anyway, I know The Tack Room used to do it, but Don closed up shop a few years ago. Golden Horseshoe suggested I send the saddle to a guy in Chicago. Any other suggestions?

I don't know how good they are having never had any repairs done, but you could check with Charlie's Farm and Home out in Wentzville --- I know I've seen a sign there about tack repair.

Bumping this because I too am looking for a saddler in the St. Louis area. I seriously need a reflock!

I know it isn't St. Louis but what about sending it to Corky Corcoran in KC? I have no clue if he is still doing leather work or if he has retired since I no longer live in the area, he does an excellent job.

There's also an old guy in Sullivan MO that does pretty decent work. Sounds like we could use some leather crafters in the area!

I need some saddle repairs done as well and would love to find a good place...I wish there was someone more convenient than Chicago or KC!

Does anyone know where to get zippers in tall boots replaced here? I don't want to take it to a normal shoe cobbler, would prefer someone with experience.
