Many people know Maureen from an extensive career in the retail tack industry that has spanned over twenty years and just about every discipline. With over $1 Million Dollars in retail sales Maureen has taken an acquired eye for quality and fine craftsmanship to her own business on the family ranch. There you will find only the finest in hand made riding gear – every item is made one by one – showcased in a cozy showroom paneled in barn wood from the home ranch. Custom saddles and fitting, custom bits and spurs and jewelry, trophy awards – let us design something for you!
Your Hours are My Hours!
Maureen began her journey in the horse world as a young girl on The McHugh Ranch in the Highwood River Valley just south of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. There were 250 horses in the ‘Back Forty’ and a tack room full of trophy saddles from her Uncle Patrick. A love for Pro Rodeo and a daughter that wanted to build bits and spurs led to a search for artists in the industry that would mentor Angela. We are blessed to have discovered the world of Custom Saddle Building and Silversmithing and we are proud to showcase the people that build for competitors that ride at a World Level.
Western Specialties is proud to support Pro Rodeo, Senior Pro Rodeo, The ARCHA, Tim Horton’s Kids Camps, Local Youth and 4H Groups.
Maureen gives Tack Inspections, Bit Lectures, Horsemanship Clinics and Judges Shows For 4H as well.
