|Dear Mr. Carney,|
I would like to thank you for the magnificent leather work you did for me in recreating my Bohlin Parade headstall that was stolen. The craftsmanship is excellent, and it matches perfectly. The Bohlin double rig gun belt, matching Gauntlets, Buckaroo style Bohlin spur straps, and even my dress belts are beautifully hand tooled to match my Silver Parade Saddle.. The placement of the Bohlin made silver is very obvious how much time and care you took on matching Bolin's work. Your workmanship would make Mr. Bohlin proud!
I ride with the Long Beach Mounted Police in many parades each year, most famous being the Rose Parade in Pasadena California. I get to actually use the Bohlin Parade Saddle and outfit which you helped recreate. One of the more impressive items that you did for me was the Bohlin style round reins to go with my recreated headstall. The craftsmanship is unbelievable, the stitching in the perfectly round leather, and with the placement of the Bohlin engraved Silver tubes is incredible.
John your craftsmen ship and knowledge of Bohlin, made it all possible for me to Ride in a complete Bohlin Silver saddle outfit right down to the spur straps. As Captain of the Long Beach Mounted Police, it is part of my responsibility to check a lot of riders gear. I can say that your workman ship is equal to the best.
Again, Thank You for all of your experience with Bohlin Saddles helping me put my outfit back together.
Andrew L. Vineyard
