Carved Tapaderos   # 1



Cut from one piece of skirting leather
and molded to shape, with a fancy
Rawhide Appliqué  Braid running down
the front. It is this Rawhide braiding that
forms the front of the tap's giving them
the fit and balance that sets them apart
from all the other Tapaderos you have
seen. They will hang in perfect  balance
and give years of service, greatly improving
comfort and safety when riding in heavy
brush or wet cold weather.

The three photos at the left are all
taken of the same pair of taps

The first photo showing the full floral
carving done to match a saddle.

The second photo shows the back
side of the taps and shows
the basket stamping that
covers the side against
the horse.

The third photo shows the Rawhide
Appliqué braiding that forms the front
of the Tapaderos.
