Westfall Saddle Makers

Westfall, Oregon. Population: Zero. But this old west ghost town is still alive with the sound of men making the tools of the cowboy trade. In the sagebrush hills of Malheur County artisans Monte Beckman and Ernie Marsh create remarkable saddles, bits and spurs for the working cowboys of the area, creating museum-quality pieces as well.

First Broadcast: 2005
Producer: Mike Midlo
