ND can be proud of saddle makers

Walter Piehl


Shawn Kramer (MDN 11-21-17) is perhaps the first Denbigh Kramer to distinguish himself as a great saddle maker. But as the son of Jack Kramer, one of North Dakota’s best bareback rodeo riders, Shawn, his brothers and their sons did and are continuing in the family traditions as outstanding roughstock competitors.

That Shawn, his wife, Lisa, and son Jack are making splendid saddles and other working cowboy equipment, is something the whole state can be proud of. Their craftsmanship is unsurpassed anywhere in the country.
