About Jeff Morrow...

Shooting Star Saddlery, owned and operated by Jeff Morrow, seeks to create the type of rugged and beautiful gear that you would be pleased to hand down to your children and grandchildren. Great care is taken in producing all of our products, whether it is a custom saddle, a case for CD's, or a leg-up hobble. Twenty-five years experience with leather, and many more years around horses, allows Jeff to fit the needs of most customers. Beginning an order for a saddle, Jeff likes to find out a rider's inseam, weight, thigh measurement, type of riding and horses that will be used. Some unique items produced include pommel bags that do not interfere with the saddle horn, a shoulder holster rig that is adjustable for pitch and position of gun as well as shooter's size and amount of clothes worn (i.e., will fit over a T-shirt and winter clothes.)

Seen here at Bannack Days, 1995, a celebration of Montana's first gold mining town and Capitol, (now a semi-restored ghost town and State Park) Jeff, Joanne, and Zak Morrow demonstrated saddle-making and leather-carving for approximately 3,400 visitors during the weekend.
"It was really a unique experience to set up our wall tent amongst the old buildings, much like some of the first arrivals to Bannack,  over 100 years ago. Seeing the town in the moonlight each night, while someone strolled on the boardwalk, or while someone played the pump-organ in the old church, made me wish we could stay longer", Jeff said of the event. 
Jeff Morrow believes that personal attention to the customers is the best way to help them find the right gear. Feel free to call, write, or E-mail us to discuss your needs. Jeff has broke, trained, and shod all types of  horses, cowboyed on ranches large and small, and packed and guided tourists and hunters in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. He feels a broad background with horses is essential to creating good saddlery.
For several years Jeff was invited to participate in Western Heritage Days put on by the Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site. The 
three day weekend is spent demonstrating saddle-making in a living history setting, using the old buggy sheds for a shop. Grant-Kohrs Ranch is a wonderfully preserved 
ranch dating to the 1860's.  Western Heritage Days, held on the second weekend of July, is a mecca for artists, musicians, historians, cowboys, cowgirls, and dutch-oven cooks. Admission to the site is free during Western Heritage Days. Grant-Kohrs Ranch has a fantastic display of everything related to ranch work as well as a remarkable house stuffed with the fine Victorian furniture. This site is a must-see for anyone interested in the history of the western U.S. (Photo by Tim Gram, Bozeman)
