Rawhide Braider Tim George

Traditional rawhide braiding is as utilitarian as it is beautiful and used to be widely practiced by working cowboys. Sure, they enjoyed it but they also needed the finished reins, riatas and bosals to handle their horses on-the-job. Pendleton’s Tim George takes this meticulous, traditional cowboy art form to the level of fine art.
