Samantha Huston


Samantha Huston grew up locally in her dad’s saddle shop picking up silver and leather tools at a young age. Deciding to take on saddle making in 2013, she built a custom saddle for herself with her dad, William Lee Huston. In 2016 she inherited a complete leather working shop from an aging western artist and saddle maker in Carmel Valley, California. She has now built the saddle shop of her dreams in the historical Rainbow Hut building in Santa Margarita, California and has made over 30 saddles.
