We are Andy and Ruth Knight. Our Shop is located at our home in the Nicola Valley, in south central British Columbia. Some of Canada's largest ranches are in close proximity.
I (Andy) have been building saddles since 1974, starting in Calgary at Textan Kenway . After a short stint there I left and started the long road of learning to build saddles one at a time.
Moving to the Nicola Valley from northern BC in 1986 put us and our now young family in one of British Columbia's most beautiful areas. We have been blessed to be able to reside and work where ranch work and cowboying is still done on horseback.
From 1990 through 2000 we owned and operated Knights Western Emporium in Merritt; a full service cowboy/western shop. Selling the store in town we moved the shop home where we could concentrate on building saddles .
We still enjoy the rural western lifestyle with horses out back. The hours in the shop are flexible allowing time with the grandsons, family and horses ;)
