Meet the Craftsman

Mike Hazelbaker grew up horseback working on his family’s cattle operation where he learned many valuable lessons like the importance of helping out a neighbor, caring for the animals he worked with, and properly maintaining the tack and gear he used every day.  Hazelbaker originally developed an interest in leather work while in high school.  He would create leather projects as gifts and did tack repair for his family and friends.  After competing in rodeos and operating other businesses for several years, Hazelbaker returned to his passion and opened his own leather shop where he has offered cowboy-approved leatherwork for the last 10 years.
