Searching For Late Grandfather's Saddles

Recommended Posts

My late grandfather, Ted Pecina, owned Pecina Saddlery in Emory, TX for many years around the 70's. He never made a huge name for himself but I've been told he trained a few that did get big. Supposedly Billy Cook and relations, the Vegas. I am trying to find if there are any left out there and am lost as to where to really look. I've been all over the net so I thought maybe I could post on a few sites like this one and see if any of y'all have ever seen one. I believe it was Pecina or something similar stamoed under the horn. Thanks for any advice or information you can give me! My mother wants to find one left, even if just for pictures, and I'd like to surprise her.

You might want to contact some of the Western Museums, Billy Cooks Saddlery or any other old time saddle companies or ranches in the surrounding areas to see if they have any records, photos, information or a saddle from your grandfather.

The phrase Pecina Saddlery did pop up in a couple of obituaries in Texas. Local newspapers could have run articles or ads about his business and could be a great resource for information and photos.

Good Luck with your hunt!

Please post your results here so that we can share your family history & information.
