The Design starts with You Friend! February 22, 2017 11:14

Here's the story I hear over and over.
I want you to make me a tack set but I don't know where to start.
I have a "Sorrel" horse and I don't know what colors to use.
My questions are as follows..
What colors make you smile?
Something like this ? 
Or are you more "Monochromatic"? 
What types of themes or Patterns? do you like?
Are you an "animal print girl?" Does leopard print make your heart go pitter patter?
Do you love the pop of a good floral print?
Are you a LV GIRL or a Betsey Johnson? 
I'd be willing to bet if you answered these couple of questions for me..
I can sit down at my computer and sketch out something that you'll love! 
So what have you got to lose?
Hit me up at 
please title your email "Design Me" 
All of these people did!!

Do you have tack that lasts a decade? February 8, 2017 08:27

Since May of 2005, I have consistently created painted tack  that keeps customers coming back for more. I take a lot of pride in building a long lasting product. Our Paint finish is SECOND TO NO ONE. Our paint is layered on and "penetrates into the leather" Its far superior to "the printed" items that are being produced now. Printed designs are ink, not paint that lasts for up to 50 years. Painted tack has layers of paint that penetrate the leather. Printed inks only have one extremely light coat of ink that does two things. Wears off and fades in the sunshine. So be assured when you buy my stuff that its going to last!

NEW DOMAIN NAME January 31, 2017 10:24

In our new "tech adventures"
I discovered an issue
(bad bad bad for business)
We found that most customers searched "cowboyjunkietack" instead of our domain name
Thecowboyjunkie.com so today
We bought the domain name
Everything said that it may take 48 hours for this change to take effect on all devices!
I just wanted to give you a heads up that it has changed...

HOW TO CONTACT ME January 26, 2017 11:28


I feel really bad here... I just got the most searched for item this month (report)  and "CONTACT SELLER" was  was searched six times.. Ok let me explain here. I drive a school bus starting at 5 am weekdays and I drive again in the afternoon. A lot of time I get hit with "unexpected" school field trips.. Since it is against FEDERAL LAW to operate a cell phone on a school bus, I am very guilty of not always answering my phone. Please don't leave a voicemail.. They will get lost somewhere will all those " I have a health plan for you " messages.. After you call and don't get me, please send a text message or email. My phone number is 936-676-3725 and my email address is cowboyjunkietack@gmail.com

Latest Products..VINTAGE VINTAGE VINTAGE June 8, 2016 14:12

I added a western vintage tack style this year. 
I have been working on adding each type of product I offer in this style.
What is vintage you say? 
Websters says the following... 
used to describe something that is not new but that is valued because of its good condition, attractive design, etc.
used to describe something that has the best qualities or characteristics of the things made or done by a particular person, organization, etc.




This a vintage pattern from 1940 that I have put into production for strap goods.

You wont find this ANYWHERE ELSE!! 

We call him Big Chief!! 

We can make you the following in this pattern and it can be painted any colors you want.

Dog collars, belts, tack sets, headstalls, wither straps,purse straps, rope can straps, camera straps, halters
