When you walk in the shop, the first thing you notice is the unique and enveloping smell that makes you stop in your tracks and think of warm caramel – it’s actually fresh, new leather. It’s one-stop shopping for tourists as well as horse folks. Everyone makes you feel immediately welcome and comes out to give you individual attention. If you are looking for something in particular (hats, boots, chaps, jewelry, saddles, tack, books, gifts), they are happy to answer any questions you may have. Ben’s Saddlery has been a well-known provider of leather repair work as well as quality horse products to Wickenburg and the entire southwest for 60 years. There is no pressure here, but more of a feeling of nostalgia as you wander back to the counter that separates the retail part of the store from the repair area. You will usually see a couple of saddles “in progress” as well as many that look as if they’ve seen better days. However, when Bruce and his crew get finished, old will look like new, and new will look stunning! Many people comment on how hard it is to find a complete repair shop such as this one.
