I recently purchased a custom saddle probably from the 1970s to 1980s. Only mark is on latigo keeper, Longhorn Western La Habra Ca. It's obviously handmade, bears resemblance to the old Victor saddles, silver lace (appears to be sterling), sterling conchos, hand tooled, classic old high rise California equitation seat. Have owned an A Ayala before and this is same quality and style. Does anyone know who made the saddles for Longhorn Western in La Habra? Appears the company went out mid 1980s and I can't find any helpful info on them. Hoping someone in La Habra will remember something to help me!

Perhaps you can use Esther Kramer's obitury to direct you: http://obits.ocregister.com/obituaries/orange...

It lists names of her books, etc. Esther's parents were original settlers of la habra. She also made a book of la habra oral history, available at Cal State Fullerton. She wrote articles on la habra's history 2 times a month for many years in the La Habra Journal.(Perhaps previous publisher or editor...wife & husband...could help) These are archived at the La Habra Library in Civic Center. Perhaps place your request for help in the Journal, if they do that. Try talking to volunteers at La Habra's children's museum. Many of them are seniors and may remember something. Kruse Feed & Supply Store on Lambert has provided necessitites for horses, chickens, etc. for La Habra & La Habra Heights since 1935. Downtown LH has a lot of old (& some multi-generational, family owned) businesses that have been here for at least 35 years.
Her books and articles should give you clues. Good luck--what a find!
