Established and operated by Vern and Rita Habighorst, along with their son Jeff and daughter Lisa Hamm, Blue Ribbon Custom Tack has been in business for over 30 years. Our existence revolves around our dedication to provide high quality, custom tack that is built for horsemen, by horsemen, in a close family setting. We've long been known for producing the finest quality and most comfortable show saddles on the market. Blue Ribbon has one of the widest selections of western saddles in the area. Find out more about our custom saddles.

As horsemen, we realize what exhibitors need to stay competitive. We also work closely with World Champion trainers so we know precisely how to meet the demands of today's riders. Because of our in-depth knowledge and experience, we are able to create saddles with unparalleled internal and external designs and are protected by registered copyrights and patents. After you purchase a Blue Ribbon saddle, we even help you keep it looking its best. Learn how to care for your saddle.

Our craftsmen take the utmost pride in their work, both at our store in Phoenix and our silver plant in Guadalajara, Mexico. The art of engraving has been passed down from generation to generation; a practice that still produces silver creations that are deeply immersed in tradition.

Whether it is a full saddle, headstall or piece of silver, we pay extreme attention to detail. We use only the highest quality materials, including Hermann Oak Grade A Leather and only sterling silver. Each piece of tack is hand fitted and finished, then carefully inspected before it leaves our shop.

If you are ever in the Phoenix area, please stop by our manufacturing facility. We would be pleased to offer you a tour! You can witness how our saddles are made for yourself. The dedication and craftsmanship is apparent at every step, start to finish.
